Diana’s Choice, conqueror of the colts in Saturdays race was bred from a Stakes placed Summerhill-bred mare (Fly to the Stars by Desert Team). She in turn is a daughter of the Northern Guest mare Anouk Aimee. The latter was produced from a family made famous by two of Frances most distinguished breeders of the last century, the late Count Roland de Chambure and the legendary horseman Alec Head.
Of some satisfaction and joy to the team in Mooi River, is the fact that Anouk Aimee is the prize possession of our Agricultural Manager, Barry Watson and she is currently in foal to Cataloochee. This was Diana’s Choice second consecutive Graded Stakes victory and she looks set for much bigger things as we approach the Champions Day race meeting at the latter end of the KZN Season of Champions.
