Multiple champion sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill) remains available at A$110,000, unchanged from last year. His son Snitzel, who enjoyed a tremendous 2014/15 season on the track and at the sales with two Group 1 winners in Sweet Idea and Wandjina as well as the two Inglis Easter Sale-toppers at A$2.2 million and A$1.8 million, has his fee raised from A$71.500 to A$88,000 (+23%). Four-time Group 1 winner Olympic Glory, a son of the former Australian sprint phenomenon Choisir, will be offered at A$19,500 for his first season, as he shuttles from Al Shaqab's Haras de Bouquetot in France.
Fees remain unchanged for both Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux), whose first foals are now weanlings, and Dundeel (High Chaparral), whose first foals are due this coming Spring, at A$33,000 and A$27,500 respectively.
Leading sire of 2-year-olds Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice) also has his fee unchanged at A$33,000, as does Smart Missile (Fastnet Rock), whose first yearlings sold for up to A$700,000. His fee remains A$22,000, "In keeping with Arrowfield's policy of raising fees only on the back of racetrack performance," said the farm. Manhattan Rain (Encosta De Lago) remains available at A$16,500, All American (Red Ransom) has his fee cut by 33% to A$11,000 and Charge Forward (Red Ransom)'s fee is down 25% to A$16,500.
