MUSIR (5 h Redoute's Choice - Dizzy De Lago by Encosta De Lago)
A DAY after siring the A$450,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast day one session-topper, Redoute's Choice assumed the spotlight again, this time as the sire of Thursday's Meydan Group 3 winner Musir.
The Australian-bred five-year-old is one of 20 Group 1 winners by Redoute's Choice, the star act of the Arrowfield Stud roster who stood the past southern hemisphere season for A$137,500. Other Group 1 winners by the son of Danehill include the outstanding fillies Miss Finland and Samantha Miss.
Bred by his owner Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Musir is the first foal out of the Listed-placed Dizzy De Lago, a daughter of Encosta De Lago. A granddaughter of The Dancer, who ran third in the 1980 Epsom Oaks, the mare is out of a half-sister to St Leger runner-up Mack The Knife and the dam of champion Japanese sire King Kamehameha.
