Horse Description:

Master Of Design was a $2.1 million yearling son of REDOUTE’S CHOICE that reached the top of the sprinting ranks when he won the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes at Randwick.

The Group 1 win was no fluke as the exciting sprinter also prevailed in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes before joining STRATUM, NOT A SINGLE DOUBT, SNITZEL and the late BENETEAU as outstanding sons of Redoute’s Choice at stud.

Master Of Design’s female pedigree sets him apart from Redoute’s Choice’s other sons at stud as he is a descendant of PRINCESS TRACY along with fellow Group 1 winners SUNTAGONAL, DANASINGA and TYPHOON TRACY.

Gaudi is out of the DEPUTY GOVERNOR mare Lovely Rita, who had the class to win in Melbourne among her four victories while her dam is a half-sister to the Group 1 SA Oaks winner DEROBE while she is closely related to Group 1 winners POMPEII RULER and READY TO EXPLODE as well as the Victoria Derby runner-up Bondeiger.
