Tara Madgwick - Wednesday January 13

Already the sire of three promising winners in Tiger of Malay, Abseiler and the unbeaten Kiwi Palamos, Not a Single Doubt’s dual Group I winning son Extreme Choice is a young sire very much on the up.

Consigned by Milburn Creek, the Aquis bred colt from Convention was bought by Ciaron Maher Bloodstock and is a half-brother to two winners from an imported daughter of champion sire Encosta de Lago.

Convention is a half-sister to Group I winning sprinter Regal Parade and Group III winner Entifaadha.
