By Champion Sire Redoutes Choice
Out of Back Pass

New to Moorookyle this spring is the imposing stallion Sharkbite, regally bred son of the great Redoute’s Choice from the ever flourishing and always popular Danehill sire line.

Recently represented by his 30th Group One winner, Redoute’s Choice has already proven his worth as a sire of sires with 18 of his sons siring stakes winners including Snitzel, Not A Single Doubt and Stratum.

Already proven in his ability to upgrade his mares, Sharkbite has been in outstanding form of late, well represented by the likes of smart metropolitan winners Andrassy, Viaductress, Jaws Of Steel and Clear The Beach.

Also sire of the black type performers Siorca and Shayana, Sharkbite is an eye-catching dark brown, near black son of the outstanding broodmare Back Pass.

An imported daughter of the Epsom Derby hero Quest For Fame, Back Pass has clicked extremely well with Redoute’s Choice, also producing by him the dual Group 3 winner Scissor Kick.

Sharkbite hails from a prolific international family, one that has produced Europe’s most successful broodmare Hasili – dam of the Group One gallopers Champs Elysees, Banks Hill, Intercontinental, Cacique and Heat Haze as well as the influential stallion Dansili.

What a wonderful family this is, one also represented by big race winners Romantica, Promising Lead, Leroidesanimaux (sire of Animal Kingdom), Uapybo, So Factual and Benbaun.

Such a great type that he fetched $900,000 as an Easter Sale yearling, Sharkbite showed his class on the track winning five races including the Listed Lord Stakes.

Unbeaten at two, Sharkbite quickly raced through to stakes level at three, finishing second to Haradasun in the Listed Vain Stakes, third in the Gr.3 Danehill Stakes and third in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude.

Talented and versatile, Sharkbite was successful over a variety of trips from 1000m to 1700m winning at four different tracks.
