Arrowfield buys 50 per cent of rising star The Autumn Sun
Redoute's Choice colt is favourite for the Caulfield Guineas
Caulfield Guineas favourite The Autumn Sun already has a secure future at stud, with Arrowfield buying 50 per cent of the rising star of the turf.
An odds-on favourite to win Saturday's $2million feature, the Chris Waller-trained Redoute's Choice colt now has the powerful Arrowfield Stud behind him after they joined in partnership with Hermitage Thoroughbreds.
"I am very pleased to join Hermitage in the ownership of The Autumn Sun to race him and then develop his breeding career," Arrowfield principal John Messara said.
"It just seems Arrowfield is the rightful place for this colt's future at stud - after all, we bred and sold him in partnership with The Aga Khan Studs, and we launched and stood his champion sire and grand-sire.
"He has physique, athleticism and pedigree, all of the highest order, and I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of standing him at Arrowfield."
It appears The Autumn Sun will retain his Hermitage colours - the dark green with red chevrons - for Saturday's Group 1, in which James McDonald is booked for the ride.
