The well-bred young mare Mantilla is being offered at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale on November 4, 2013 in foal to Redoute’s Choice, the leading Australian sire. She wears hip number 97.
Redoute’s Choice is both an Australian champion sire and a champion two-year-old sire. To his credit, he has produced over 100 stakes winners. Breaking that number down, he has 23 Group I winners, 12 three-year-old classic winners, with earnings over $94 million. His get in the sales ring have brought over $300 million, with 63 yearlings bringing over a million dollars each
Joe Seitz who is Brookdale’s Director of Sales said,
Redoute’s Choice is one of the great stallions in the world today, and Northern Hemisphere breeders have had very little access to him up to this point in time. Mantilla is just four years old, carrying her first foal by a special horse, and she descends from one of the best female families in the stud book.
Mantilla is by Gone West. In her Juddmonte stakes-producing family are champions Xaar, Malinowski and Grade I victors Blush with Pride, Jazil, Rags to Riches, Senure, and Close. Her fourth dam is Best in Show.
Mantilla may be examined at Brookdale’s consignment in Barn 1 at Fasig-Tipton. She is up for sale November 4.
