NSW Hunter Valley-based Byerley Stud announced stakes-winning 5YO stallion Sharkbite (Redoute's Choice-Back Pass, by Quest For Fame) will stand at the Sandy Hollow farm this season for $7,700. Byerley owner Martin Hawcroft commented: "He's 1 of only 2 stakes-winning sons of Redoute's Choice to be retiring to stud in the Hunter Valley this spring & will be receiving considerable support from his shareholders Jonathan Munz & Debbie & Joe Throsby." Sharkbite (a $900,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) recorded 5 wins (including the Listed Lord Stakes over 1700m at Caulfield) & 5 placings (including both the Gr3 Danehill Stakes over 1200m at Flemington & Listed Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield) from 23 starts for $292,000 earnings.
