CHOISIR FILLY IMPRESSES ADREANLINE
Adrenaline Thoroughbred Syndications purchased this chestnut filly out of the premier session of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in January 2016.
Only yearling thoroughbreds of the highest standard are selected by the Magic Millions Bloodstock team for their premier sale each year. And, this filly is a mature type and owns a loose, clean and direct; walk which is indicative of balance and efficiency.
Adrenaline have rated the chestnut highly on conformation which was endorsed by the opinion of their stable vet.
By Choisir, who has an enviable record as a sire of international racehorses that are fast and forward in development as youngsters and can mature to run over a diverse range of distances.
Choisir was named Champion Australian Juvenile in 2001-2002, starting nine times over distances ranging from 1000m to 1600m and placing in each leg of the 2yo Triple Crown. During the horses classic season, Choisir raced and placed in many of Australia’s highest profile three-year-old sprinting stakes races, including the Caulfield Guineas, the Stan Fox Stakes, and the Roman Consul Stakes and that campaign culminated in victory in the Group 2 Linlithgow Stakes at Flemington, defeating Group 1 winners Belle du Jour, Spinning Hill and Falvelon. Choisir returned to Flemington in the Autumn of 2003 and defeated the older horses, again, to win the Group 1 Lightning Stakes.
Choisir was flown to England where he won the Gr.2 King’s Stand Stakes and backed up four days later to win the Gr.1 Golden Jubilee at Royal Ascot.

NOT ENOUGH? The dam of this filly Champalou, a winning daughter by Encosta de Lago that broke her maiden status at just her second racetrack appearance at Warwick Farm.

Who better to train your horse than a man who knows how a champion racehorse must move, who can talk to jockeys in their own language, and who has the known hunger to win at the highest level??
Chris Munce is one of only seven jockeys ever to win Australia’s thoroughbred racing grand slam: the Melbourne Cup, the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, and the Golden Slipper.
He is one of the nation’s premier horsemen. Trusted by Australia’s top trainers, Chris rode some of the best gallopers of our generation, including Desert War, Dance Hero, Dane Ripper and Savabeel.
When Chris finished his riding career with a staggering 42 Group victories, becoming a trainer was a natural progression.
Not every jockey can transition to the other side of the rails, but Munce’s distinguished background in racing and working with horses has seen him make the change successfully. He has always applied a considered analytical approach to riding and his father-in-law is trainer Barry Mitchell.
Chris has seen first-hand the practices of Australia’s most experienced trainers and is now applying all he has learned in his own stable. And it’s paying off.
In just his first full season Chris has firmly entrenched in the top 10 metropolitan trainers premiership in Brisbane. He has shown he can work with horses with diverse strengths – sprinters, stayers, older horses, and two-year-olds – and he dedicates effort and attention towards getting the best out of all horses with his positive approach.
Chris continues to ride track work, giving him unparalleled insights into the movement and temperament of the horses in his care.
Munce Racing’s boutique stable is a great fit for Adrenaline Thoroughbreds, as they have have known Munce for a number of years and they are proud to be partnering with one of Brisbane’s best to get the most out of their racehorses.
