Redoute's Choice Colt Tops MMGC Night Session
A colt by champion sire Redoute's Choice topped a wet evening session as records tumbled with the Book One section of the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale coming to a close on Saturday night. The night session’s star was Lot 877 - Arrowfield Stud's Redoute's Choice colt from Traceability who sold to Aquis Farm for $900,000. The colt is a three-quarter brother to Gr1 winner Master of Design and stakes winner Traces, and a full-brother to the stakes performed Spring Loaded. The colt cemented Arrowfield Stud as the leading vendor of the sale by gross with their 54 lots selling for just shy of $16 million. Arrowfield also rounded out Book One with the sale top seller - the Deep Impact colt from Honesty Prevails finishing top of the table at $1.9 million. Redoute's Choic, meanwhile, rounded out second on the leading sires table (for three or more lots sold) by average at $451,429 - only shy of I Am Invincible who averaged $482,024. Coolmore's record breaker American Pharoah was the leading first season sire averaging a cool $350,000 for 20 lots sold.
