Redoute’s Choice stallion Barbados stands at Ducatoon Park in South Australia.

Barbados (5h Redoute’s Choice – Virage De Fortune by Anabaa) is a Darley homebred.

His dam Virage De Fortune was a Group 1 winner of the QTC Sires’ Produce Stakes and MVRC Australia Stakes.  She was later purchased by Sheikh Mohammed for a record-breaking $3.40 million at the 2007 Inglis Broodmare Sale.

Second dam Virage is a daughter of Kenmare who pioneered the shuttle era when he flew from France to Arrowfield in 1988.  He sired Virage from champion mare Emancipation.

Barbados suffered a broken pelvis which ended his career after five starts.  Ducatoon Park owner Peter Toole has placed a $4,400 (inc gst) fee on his services.

Ducatoon Park

Sire barbados ; hualeilei
Stud Ducatoon Park

Ducatoon Park is located at Kadina on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula, about a two hour drive north of Adelaide.

The property – one of the most picturesque in the region – covers 325 acres of limestone country and is dedicated to rearing of thoroughbred racehorses.

Peter, wife Valmai and family purchased the property in 1995. It had been used for grain growing and hadn’t had any horses on it since the ‘horse-team days’.

The original property was divided into just 5 paddocks with 3 water troughs. The only power point outside of the house was used by the pressure pump to supply rainwater to the house.

After nine years of hard work the family transformed the property into a boutique horse stud.  Raceways were established to connect all 17 paddocks and 155 gates were installed, all designed for simplicity of work and convenience.

Thousands of trees have been planted at Ducatoon Park, not only for shelter and windbreaks, but also for ‘sighters’.  Each paddock is separated from another by rows of trees or raceways. Fences are all 5’ high with poly-pipe on the top wire for easier sighting.

When Peter and Valmai shifted to Ducatoon Park, they brought with them 6 mares of their own and 3 outside mares. These ranks have now swelled . These ‘outsiders’ are owned by clients as far away as Gold Coast, Sydney, Birdsville, Pt. Lincoln and Adelaide.


Street Cry - Aloha by En Costa de Lago

Stud Ducatoon Park

Trained by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, he won a Kembla Grange juvenile in May 2017 and doubled up at Rosehill a month later.  Resuming for a G1 Caulfield Guineas program earlier this season, he finished midfield in a stakes races at Flemington before injury curtailed his career after just 7 starts.

“He switched off nicely, relaxed and was able to finish off strong through the line,” Bott said after the Rosehill victory.  “He’s still very raw but there’s a huge amount of ability there.  We will take him through his grades and map out a path towards the Guineas.”

Hualalai is by champion sire Street Cry and was a $625,000 buy for Spendthrift Farm at the 2016 Gold Coast Magic Millions.  Named after a popular tourist resort in Hawaii, he is from G1 Coolmore Classic winner Aloha (Encosta de Lago).

Second-dam Tennessee Midnight (Danehill) won a LR Ottawa Stakes at Flemington and is a half-sister to Group 1 winner Malaguerra.

Hualalai stands at a fee of $4000 (inc gst).
