Redoute's Serves 8 Mares To Northern Time
Arrowfield Stud boss John Messara "revealed Redoute's Choice has served 8 broodmares in northern hemisphere time, with further inquiries from breeders anxious to gain access to the super sire," reported The Sydney Morning Herald. Messara confirmed: "Arrowfield felt it was a bit of an experiment to use Redoute's Choice outside the Australian breeding season; but we had a number of serious requests & decided it would not affect his career. We have no thoughts whatsoever of shuttling overseas with the stallion because of his freakish success in Australia & the fact breeders had no qualms in accepting his $220,000 covering fee in 2006." Catnipped (a daughter of Rory's Jester who won the Magic Millions) has already been tested in foal to Redoute's Choice & other mares served recently include Asian Reef, Weekend By The Sea & Gold Crystal.
