$1.1 million Redoute's Choice-Gresset MMGC Colt
With yearlings available in ever-dwindling supply by Arrowfield Stud’s late, great, stallion Redoute’s Choice (Danehill-Shantha’s Choice, by Canny Lad), interest was super-charged in Lot 354 on Day 2 of the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale. Consigned by top nursery Bhima Thoroughbreds, the colt was purchased by China’s An Zhiqiang. A member of a happening family with plenty of post catalogue winning updates, this Redoute’s youngster comes from one of Europe’s finest families – that of exceptional female line ancestor Darazina whose subsequent descendants include Gr1 performers like Almanzor, Honorine, Darsi, Darjina, Gentle Genius, Daryaba, Daryakana and Dariyan.
