Choisir x My Amelia (by Redoute's Choice)
Standing at Canungra, QLD
A outstandingly tough 2YO, The Mission, by emerging sire of sires Choisir, was a two and a half length winner of the Gr.3 ATC Schweppervescence Handicap, before ending his juvenile campaign with a dominant win in the Gr.1 ATC Champagne Stakes, a race won in the past by Gr.1 producing sires Pierro and Helmet.
At three he was beaten less than two lengths in the Gr.1 ATC All Aged Stakes at Randwick by Trapeze Artist and Redzel under weight-for-age conditions in a race run in track-record time.
Out of a Redoute’s Choice mare, just like the successful Gr.1 sire Zoustar, The Mission is the ONLY Gr.1-winning, Champion 2YO by his sire standing at stud in Australia.
The Mission will be the fourth Gr.1-winning stallion from the Paul Perry stables, following on from Fastnet Rock, Stratum and The Mission’s very own sire Choisir.
A stunning individual with the pedigree and physique to match, The Mission was bred by Edinglassie Stud, whose other leading farm graduates include the successful, proven Gr.1 sire Nadeem as well as the promising young sires Deep Field and Shooting To Win.
"We have been really impressed with The Mission foals. In 2019 we have foaled 10 down from a variety of mares and The Mission consistently stamps his progeny with a good type that are strong and well balanced."
Ben Lucas, Lucas Bloodstock
"A very elegant filly, a great mover and a very athletic type."
Nick Nolan, Noralla Stud
"The Mission was a mature and precocious 2YO who won the Group 3 The Schweppervescence and then went on to win the time-honoured Group 1 Champagne Stakes - you can't ask much more of a 2YO. He showed his prowess as a 3YO and has run admirably against the best sprinters in the land like Trapeze Artist and Redzel in Group 1 sprints under WFA conditions on a track rated a Good 3. I look forward to training the stock of The Mission, just as I have with my other graduates in Fastnet Rock, Stratum and The Mission’s sire Choisir."
Paul Perry, Trainer
