G1-placed Redoute's Choice mare among first confirmed Chairman's Wildcards
28th Mar 2019
Sensibility – a beautifully bred G1-placed Redoute’s Choice mare in foal to I Am Invincible – is among the first confirmed Wildcard entries to The Chairman’s Sale.
Sensibility’s career best performance came as a 3YO in the G1 Flight Stakes at Randwick (pictured) where, at just her third start, she finished 2nd behind four-time G1 winner Guelph, with classy pair Bound For Earth and Arabian Gold in arrears.
A daughter of Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice (broodmare sire of the likes of Zoustar, Kementari, Sacred Falls and Arcadia Queen among 13 individual G1 winners), Sensibility is a three-quarter sister to top class 2YO Running Tall and hails from the family of international stars Frosted and Midshipman.
Sensibility’s first two foals (a Sebring colt and an I Am Invincible filly) have sold for $730,000 and $450,000 respectively.
Peter O’Brien of Segenhoe Stud, who will offer Sensibility at The Chairman’s Sale, had mixed emotions about selling the mare.
“She’s a stunning looking mare who produces great looking stock,’’ O’Brien said.
“Her second foal Sensitivity, by I Am Invincible, is very well regarded by Ciaron Maher who ran her in the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) a couple of weeks ago at just her second start.
“Her I Am Invincible weanling colt would be in the top five foals on the farm and she’s back in foal to I Am Invincible.
“Whoever is lucky enough to get her, they’ll be buying a jewel.’’
Maher confirmed his big opinion of Sensitivity.
“Sensitivity has shown us great ability and I’ve no doubt she will progress into a Stakes-winning 3YO,’’ Maher said.
“She was a ripping yearling, she really stood out as a quality type to me and she’s certainly showing all the signs that she’ll develop into a quality race filly.’’
Wildcard entries to The Chairman’s Sale are being accepted until 10am on Monday April 22.
