Dam of Fastnet Rock to visit Redoute's Choice
PICCADILLY Circus, dam of leading Australian sire Fastnet Rock, heads a select group of mares set to be covered to northern hemisphere time by Redoute's Choice this year.
Redoute's Choice and Fastnet Rock are both sons of Danehill, meaning that the resulting foal will be a three-parts sibling to Fastnet Rock, winner of the 2005 Group 1 Lightning Stakes and Group 1 Oakleigh Plate.

Piccadilly Circus, a Group 3-winning daughter of Royal Academy, also produced the Listed-placed Cirque Du Soleil to Danehill.
Arrowfield stallion Redoute's Choice, who has hit the heights already in 2012 as the sire of Meydan Group 2 winner Musir, has been available to breeders for a limited number of northern hemisphere services each year since 2006. Resulting foals include Sheikh Hamdan's pair Elzaam and Tazahum, who were successful at Listed level last season, and Godolphin's Group 3-placed juvenile Rakasa.
The sire of 50 Group or Graded stakes winners overall, including 20 at the top level,Redoute's Choice stood the past southern hemisphere season for A$137,500.
