As a prolific stallion, as a sire of sires, as a broodmare sire, Redoute’s Choice has reshaped breeding and racing in Australia. The next generation is now moving in and who better to carry the tradition than his well credentialed son Counterattack, bred on the exact same cross as Champion sire Snitzel. The family is inundated with speed as evidenced by his Redoute’s Choice sire line, his Snippets dam line, as well as his much admired, tough as nails multiple Group 1 winning half sister in Red Tracer. Counterattack was a winner at 2, a Group 3 and multiple Listed winner at 3 who was 3rd in the stallion making Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes down the Flemington straight. He has subsequently run second 5 times at Group level, three times at Group 1, including a fast finishing 2nd to Redzel in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000.
"What gives me confidence is he is a very good type with a lovely clean action, ensuring yearling buyers and trainers have confidence in purchasing his stock"
"We have all seen where these son's of Redoute's go and how successful they are. Hand on my heart I feel really strongly and really happy to have him standing here."
"I've been fortunate enough to train some very good horses, but those close to me know how highly i regarded Counterattack as a 2yo, 3yo & 4yo racehorse. He comes from one of the toughest racing families being a three-quarter sister to multiple Group 1 winner Red Tracer."

A late, but very interesting Counterattack… He is late to the party in an already busy year for first season sires.
