Best Choice, an impeccibly bred son of the Champion Sire Maker in Redoute's Choice and from an outstanding Australian Sprinting female family.
An expensive Australian Easter Yearling in 2009, he went into the Clarry Conners stables who said " as a racehorse Best Choice showed “heaps of ability from day one,”. Clarry was keen to get the eye-catching 16.2hh entire to the track at two, unfortunately shin soreness and a virus delaying his debut.
It was to be a debut worth waiting for though, at Canterbury on September 8, 2010, Best Choice overcoming interference to claim a 1250m event – going wide at the turn and charging home.
It was a win that set tongues wagging and Conners was not backward in his praise. “I’ve got a really, really big opinion of him,” he enthused, adding that he had not been as excited about a young horse “since Mouawad.”
Jockey Peter Robl was also impressed. “He is a lovely big horse,” he said. “He has a good stride, a stallion’s pedigree and a terrific attitude to go with it.”
Confident that Best Choice would go on to much bigger and better things, Conners said “we will give him a couple more runs, win a couple more races with him, win some black type, and give him a break – it will be easy!”
Unfortunately, Best Choice promising career was cut short when he knocked a tendon.
Best Choice is by the champion sire and champion sire of sires Redoute's Choice. A sire of over 89 Stakes Winners, Redoute's has already had a major impact on the breeding barn with his sons at stud.
