Alabama Express

Redoute’s Choice X Lago Ovation, By Encosta De Lago

FEE: $22,000 inc GST

Group 1 Winner Alabama Express

The combination of two Australian stallion breedshapers in the sireline of Alabama Express makes him an exciting sire prospect.

The sire of Alabama Express, Redoute’s Choice, is an Australian phenomenon, peerless in his achievements at stud and continues to build his legacy through exceptional sons and daughters.

Trained by Mike Moroney, Alabama Express faced some of the best horses in the country under a tough run at Caulfield when he took out the WFA G1 C F Orr Stakes.

“He had the toughest run in the race and still won,” said trainer Mike Moroney. “When I saw he couldn’t get in, I thought it was game over, but it just shows you how good this horse is.”

“His father [Redoute’s Choice] won this race and he’s more like dad than any other horse I’ve seen.”

“If you can replicate even half of what his dad has done, he’s going to be a successful sire.”

Alabama Express was bred by GSA Bloodstock and purchased at the Inglis Easter Sale from Arrowfield Stud for $280,000.

“He was just a cracking athlete and he had a lot of quality, with a great mind,” commented Paul Moroney who purchased the colt as a yearling. “He had a lot of his dad, Redoute’s Choice, about him. He was a great moving horse and to me, he was a standout on class.”

“He’s obviously taken that quality of his looks across to the racetrack and he’s proven himself as a high-quality racehorse. He’s got all the hallmarks of making a great stallion prospect – he’s a Group 1 winner, he’s athletic, he’s a standout on type and he’s got a lot of his dad about him.”

Alabama Express’ first foals arrived in 2021 as strong, correct and quality types and are stacking up beautifully towards the weanling sales.
