Former champion Australasian three-year-old and five-time Group One winner Jimmy Choux has been sold to prominent Western Australian owner-breeder Alan MacAlister and will stand next season at Wayne and Tracy Rodwell’s Rosalee Park Stud in Serpentine.
MacAlister, who owns Redwood Park Stud and has a large broodmare band, also raced Group One-winning mare Magnifisio and the recently retired Group Two winning filly Whispering Brook.
Jimmy Choux, who stood at Rich Hill Stud in Matamata, was New Zealand’s leading first season sire in 2015-16 and has been a consistent sire of winners in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore.
This season he has been represented by New Zealand Group One performer Bostonian and Australian stakes winner Manolo Blahniq.
“Jimmy Choux continues to sire winners on a regular basis and he also sires a lovely line of sales yearlings,” Rich Hill Stud managing director John Thompson said.
“We wish Alan and his team all the best with him and I’m sure he will be a welcome addition to the Western Australia breeding scene. I would also like to thank leading Perth Agent John Chalmers for his role in negotiating the sale.”
