Bush Hill’s imposing and impeccably bred son of Aussie super sire Redoute’s Choice has produced his first winner – the Piemonte-bred flashy Aldo won second time out after placing second on debut.
Redoute’s Promise has produced this win from only three runners with fives starts and his yearlings are striking and handsome individuals.
Trained by Alan Greef and owned by his breeders Lee Scribante in partnership with his brother, the juvenile gelding is a half-brother to 3-time winner Filippo, trained by Yogas Govender.
Out of the very speedy filly Wishful Eye by Var, she was one of the rare fillies to beat her great paternal half-sister Val De Ra at the track.
In total, Redoute’s Promise’s dam, Perfect Promise, has produced three winners at stud and five as a second dam. Both More Energy and Hard Promise are Black Type horses.
After winning the Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas, Gr3 Diana Stakes and the Listed Prix Du Cap, she carried forward her good form to land the Australian Gr1 CJ Orr Stakes and the Gr2 Emancipation Stakes.
Her full sister Irridescence also had her share of South African Gr1 wins in the Woolavington 2000 and SA Fillies Classic, and would go on to beat sire Australia’s dam, the great Ouija Board in the Gr1 QE II Cup in Hong Kong, after securing a Gr2 in Dubai.
Sire Redoute’s Choice has been a phenomenon at stud with three Champion Sire titles, 32 individual Gr1 winners and a sire of sires at stud – he has been crowned the best son of Danehill at stud today.
His sons at stud are excelling with the likes of Snitzel, Not A Single Doubt and Stratum and Beneteau.
Redoute’s Promise is the first son of Redoute’s Choice to stand at stud in South Africa, and resides at Bush Hill Stud in Moo River.
