Peter and Paul Snowden's success with the progeny of Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice) gave the stable confidence to pay $200,000 for the son of the sire at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale on Tuesday. 

The colt has been purchased for Stambe Family who race the likes of dual Listed winner Signore Fox (Exceed And Excel), who they purchased for $300,000 at the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, and the co-trainers racing manager Colum McCullagh said the colt looked very precocious - a trait of his sire. 

"He has been bought for the Stambe Family and they have been great success with Signore Fox who we bought a couple of years ago and hopefully that success can continue with this one. 

"He is very typical of Not A Single Doubt he looks like he could go early and we loved from when he first saw him. I think he is well bought at $200,000 and we were just reaching our limit and hopefully he will be up and running early this time last year. The sire can do no wrong and as we know he is finished up covering now so hopefully this guy can continue his legacy. We were nearly at our limit, we had a little bit for him. 

"We've had great luck with Not A Single Doubts in the past, especially with the fillies and this colt was a standout. Great mover, great body, great length and he handled everything really well throughout the inspections. 

"He was well prepared for the sale by Aquis on behalf of Emirates Park and we all know what Emirates Park can do, constantly churning out winners so hopefully he is the next one."

Catalogued as Lot 551 and offered by Aquis Farm on behalf of Emirates Park, the colt is out of winning Eavesdropper (Kingmambo) mare Vivid.

Further back the colt hails from the famous New Zealand breed-shaping Eight Carat (Pieces Of Eight). 

Of the sale McCullagh said: "It has been a fantastic sale, as I said in the past we have always had good luck at this sale. It is starting to increase in quality and it is getting better and better every year. If you are looking for an up and running type at a lower price, it's definitely the sale to go to."

Not A Single Doubt finished up as the leading sire by average with four yearlings selling for average of $206,250, while his aggregate was $825,000. Snowden Racing meanwhile bought three lots during Book 1 for a total spend of $310,000.
