Redoute’s Choice heads 2012 roster at Arrowfield

Redoute’s Choice heads the Arrowfield Stud roster for 2012 at an unchanged service fee of $137,500 (inc gst).

The two-time Australian champion sired his 21st and latest Group 1 winner when Master Of Design claimed the T J Smith Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

“We understand the challenges faced by breeders operating in the current marketplace, and have made only one small fee increase this year, for our brilliant young sire Snitzel,” Arrowfield chairman John Messara said.  “However, as a result of recent developments in NSW and Australian racing, we look forward to increased participation in our sport by a wider audience.”

The six Arrowfield stallions with runners continue to produce formidable results on the track with 32 stakes winners to date this season.  The balance of Arrowfield’s roster comprises Group 1 winners All American and Manhattan Rain whose first yearlings will be offered in 2013.

The highly talented Group-winning juvenile Beneteau has his first foals due this spring while Smart Missile and Gio Ponti (USA) are the newcomers to the roster in 2012.
