Boland Stud’s 2018 KZN Yearling Sale will include a colt from the first crop of Redoute’s Choice sire Wylie Hall. Wylie Hall was an outstanding racehorse, who was first past the post in the Gr.1 Vodacom Durban July, beating champions Legislate, Futura, In The Fast Lane, Capetown Noir and Cherry On The Top in the process.
Wylie Hall, also victorious in both the Gr.1 Presidents Champions Challenge and Gr.1 SA Derby, won or placed in 15 races and banked more than R3.6 million for owner Michael Leaf during his illustrious career.
From one of the truly great Australasian families, Wylie Hall is a son of triple Australian champion sire Redoute’s Choice. The latter, one of the best stallions ever bred “Down Under”, has a total of over 150 stakes winners to his name, with his tally of black type winners including more than 30 Gr.1 winners. He has enjoyed tremendous success in South Africa, where Redoute’s Choice’s stars include the Gr.1 winners Wylie Hall, Majmu, Musir, Mustaaqeem and Rafeef.
Redoute’s Choice is a top class sire of sires, with his successful stallion sons including outstanding champion Snitzel, and sire successes Stratum, Not A Single Doubt and Beneteau. Snitzel, Champion Sire in Australia last season, has been responsible for an astonishing 26 stakes winners in Australia this season, with his runners in 2017-2018 including Golden Slipper winner Estijaab.
