Thompson Thoroughbreds Australia are offering shares in this colt by Scissor Kick (son of Redoute's Choice) that was bought at the recent Inglis Classic Sales at Warwick Farm in February.

Bred by Arrowfield in Scone, the filly will be trained by Richard Litt at Warwick Farm (winning trainer of the inaugural $2M 2YO Listed Inglis Millennium this year & Group 1 Champagne Stakes).

The Sire – Scissor Kick (by Redoute’s Choice)

Scissor Kick won as a juvenile at only his second race track appearance. He then improved into the early spring winning the Listed ATC Rosebud (1200m) before defeating Panzer Division in the Group 3 ATC Up and Coming Stakes (1300m). The following, Summer Scissor Kick’s campaign began with success in the Group 3 ATC Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m), beating subsequent Group 1 winner Delectation (by Shamardal). Scissor Kick then finished a length behind Dissident (by Sebring), Wandjina (by Sniztel) and Chautauqua (Encosta de Lago) when fourth in the Group 1 ATC All Aged Stakes (1400m).

Scissor Kick entered-into covering duties at his owners’ famous property in the Hunter Valley, Arrowfield Stud, in 2016. Standing alongside the horses’ sire, Redoute’s Choice (34 Group 1 winners), building a similar legacy to Snitzel (13 Group 1 winners); Not A Single Doubt (eight Group 1 winners) and former stallion Beneteau (two Group 1 winners). Significantly, Scissor Kick is out of the winning Quest for Fame mare Back Pass also the dam of the group winning full-brother Sharkbite. The grandam is the stakes placed Skiable (by Ninisk) and descends from a branch of a female line that’s produced Danehill’s champion European older Male Miler & joint Champion Male Miler in Great Britain in 2000 son Dansili (sire of over 130 stakes winners (SW) amongst those are 21 Group 1 winners), Canada’s Horse of the Year in 2009 Champs Elysees (sire of 22 stakes winners and three Group 1 winners) and the 2005 Champion Turf Miler Leroidesanimaux (23 stakes winners and two Group 1 winners).

The Dam – Simply Put (By Charge Forward)

Simply Put won four of her 17 race starts (winner of three metropolitan races) and placed another six times with career earnings in excess of $164,000. Her city wins were at Moonee Valley in a Fillies and Mares Benchmark 82 (1200m), Sandown Lakeside Mares Benchmark 89 (1200m) and at Sandown Hillside in a Fillies and Mares Handicap (1300m). The daughter of Charge Forward then ran a gallant second in the 2011 Group 3 Mannerism Stakes over (1400m) to go under by less than a length to finish second.

Simply Put is now the dam of three named foals, with one to race to date (Splash Headline by Manhattan Rain) which is a winner of two races. Last year Paul Perry bought the mares colt (by Not A Single Doubt) for $100,000 and it has subsequently been named Too Right. Her sire Charge Forward was renowned for being the best 2YO colt of a stellar generation winning the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) along with the Group 2 double of the Todman Slipper Stakes (1200m) and San Domenico Stakes (1000m) and the Listed Breeders' Plate (1000m) which she won on debut.
