Redoute’s Choice extended his southern hemisphere stakes wins tally to 25 this season when Rock Magic captured the LR Beaufine Stakes (1000m) at Belmont.
Rock Magic began his career with Paul Messara before relocating to Perth where he races for a large group of owners including John, Michael & Chris Gangemi. He had won last year’s LR Farnley Quality and his bank account reached $356,000 on Saturday.
“It’s great to see Chris and his family achieving success with Rock Magic who always showed ability and won his first three starts for us, including two in Sydney,” Messara said. “He’s thrived in Perth and has boosted the record of his dam Rockabubble who is booked to Olympic Glory this year.”
Rock Magic is the second foal of Rockabubble (Bubble Gum Fellow), a Group 1 winner of the Te Aroha NZ Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes.
Redoute’s Choice has sired 5 Group 1 winners this season – Lankan Rupee, Majmu, Bonaria, Hampton Court and Wylie Hall. He stands at Arrowfield Stud for a $110,000 (inc gst) service fee.
