Acclaimed son of Redoute’s Choice who was a $1.6m yearling, a G1 juvenile and a high class sprinter at three.

New in 2021 – $16,500
(inc. GST)

“The epitome of the Australian racehorse:
a good size, strong, well-made precocious type.

You can see why he sold for $1.6m.”

Shane Wright, Breeding & Bloodstock Manager

Prague stallion Kia Ora Stud

Won on debut, beating a future G2 winner. Then the G3
Canonbury – won in its time by fellow son of Redoute’s Choice,
Not A Single Doubt. Also took the G3 Pago Pago and just caught
in the G1 Sires’ Produce – having burst three lengths clear.

At three, finished fourth in the G1 Newmarket, beaten only by
horses on the far side and running much the fastest last 600m.
Again ran the best splits when beaten in a three-way photo for
the $1m G2 Arrowfield Sprint and the first colt and first threeyear-old
in the G1 All-Aged Stakes, beating six G1 winners and
avenging his Newmarket conqueror.
