Treble of Juvenile Winners for Choisir
Top class sire Choisir has 16 individual Australian juvenile winners to his credit this season including three that saluted on Thursday in Chosen Song, Kudero and Clairvaux. The Bede Murray trained filly Chosen Song (2f Choisir x Blue Mink, by Quest for Fame) picked up an Inglis Bonus when winning the juvenile event at Wagga over 1200 metres by more than a length at her second start. A $35,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the Fairview Park Stud draft, Chosen Song is the fourth winner from Blue Mink, a Quest for Fame (GB) daughter of Motown Blue. Also successful was two year-old gelding Kudero (2g Choisir x Bomba, by Last Tycoon) , who beat older horses to win an 1100 metre maiden at Gosford for the Clarry Conners stable at his third start. A $40,000 Inglis Scone Yearling Sale purchase from the draft of Southern Cross Breeders, Kudero is a brother to stakes-placed Malambo and Inglis Classic race winner Miss Independent being one of six winners from Bomba, who comes from the family of dual Group I winner Tempest Morn. Last but not least was two year-old gelding Clairvaux (2g Choisir x Free Me, by Quest for Fame) , who got the cash at Warrnambool for Matthew Williams, taking the open juvenile event over 1200 metres by more than three lengths. A $46,000 Magic Millions National Weanling purchase for Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock from the draft of Vinery Stud, Clairvaux is the second winner from Free Me, a half-sister by Quest for Fame (GB) to Group III winner Continuum. A proven Group I producing sire, Choisir is the leading Australian sire by two year-old winners and remains great value for breeders this year, his service fee set again at $27,500.
