Adding a new Group 1 winner to his burgeoning record as a broodmare sire wasn’t enough for Redoute’s Choice on Saturday.

After Extra Brut Horseform - out of the Redoute’s Choice mare Dom Perion - raced away with the $2 million Victoria Derby, he posted his 161st lifetime stakeswinner when the Bob and Sandra Peters’ home-bred mare Galaxy Star Horseform won the G3 Asian Beau Stakes at Ascot in Perth.


Trained by Grant and Alana Williams, Galaxy Star is the second of the only two foals bred by Peters Investments from city winner Galaxy Queen (Jeune) before her premature death in 2013.

Galaxy Queen’s stakes-winning half-sister Star Encounter has been more successful at stud, leaving three stakeswinners including Galaxy Star’s close relatives Perfect Jewel and Royal Star, both by Redoute’s Choice.

Redoute’s Choice is currently among the top ten sires on both the Australian General Sires’ premiership and the Broodmare Sires’ list with more than $7 million prizemoney.

Extra Brut (Domesday) is his 12th Group 1 winner as a damsire and the second Victoria Derby winner out of a Redoute’s Choice daughter after Ace High last year.

He can also claim a role in the Coolmore Stud Stakes trifecta by Sunlight, Zousain and Lean Mean Machine as they are all from the first crop of Zoustar whose dam Zouzou is a first-crop daughter of Redoute’s Choice.
