Rockabubble Heads To Redoute's Choice
Last year's Gr1 NZB Breeders' Stakes (1600m) winner Rockabubble (Bubble Gum Fellow-Blond Rocket, by Rorys' Jester) has been sold to Arrowfield Stud in Australia. Arrowfield confirmed 5YO mare Rockabubble "will travel across from NZ to the NSW-based stud today," reported NZ Thoroughbred Marketing. She will be mated next spring with star Arrowfield stallion Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) who has already sired 7 individual Gr1 winners. Overall Rockabubble (a NZ$57,500 yearling at the 2002 NZB Karaka Premier Sale) recorded 6 wins & 3 placings in 20 starts; her dam Blond Rocket is a full sister to Chortle (who won both Australia's Gr1 Caulfield Guineas & Gr1 QTC Sires Produce Stakes).
