VALE NOT A SINGLE DOUBT

27 Jun 2022 09:54


 

Rags to riches sire Not A Single Doubt has died.
The “little engine that could” rose from the lower end of Arrowfield’s roster to sire 16 Group 1 winners among 79 stakeswinners and meet some of the nation’s best mares at fees of $80,000, $90,000 and $100,000 in his final three seasons at stud.During the past few days his condition had steadily deteriorated and he was euthanised this morning.
Not A Single Doubt’s signature short-course speed was evident. He won his debut by 5 lengths at Rosehill in November 2003, followed quickly by success at Wyong and at Randwick on 20 December when he won the Canonbury S. LR and became Redoute’s Choice’s first stakeswinner.
Not A Single Doubt returned at three to add the Zeditave S. LR to his record before retiring to stud in 2005.
The fillies Karuta Queen & Miracles Of Life and colts Extreme Choice & Farnan firmly established Not A Single Doubt’s reputation as a sire of high-class, precocious juveniles. However, his best performers span several categories from sprinters Classique Legend, Clearly Innocent, Instant Celebrity, Secret Agenda, Samadoubt & Stronger to milers Scales Of Justice, Southern Legend, Good Project & Mighty Boss and a quartet of fillies that won Group 1 prizes at 2000 metres and beyond: Kenedna, Qafila, Shout the Bar and Single Gaze.
