Nicks That Click – Two Coolmore Favourites Combine
Tara Madgwick - Sunday January 7
It's tough not to be a fan of Encosta de Lago and Choisir and when they get together in a pedigree it often produces something special.

Group I winners Divine Prophet and Japonisme have something in common in both being sired by Choisir from daughters of Encosta de Lago, but on a broader scale the nick is a really good one.

28 winners from 42 runners produces 66.7 % winners to runners, while the six stakes-winners bred this way mean 14.2 % stakes-winners to runners.

This year's Magic Millions catalogue features four yearlings that I can find bred with this nick as below.

Lot 646 Colt Choisir x Dalkeith, by Encosta de Lago - Attunga Stud

Lot 676 Colt Choisir x Drifting Ice , by Encosta de Lago – Coolmore Stud

Lot 210 Colt Deep Field x Que Cee, by Choisir – Noorilim Park

Lot 936
Filly Shooting to Win x Flying Choice, Choisir – Holbrook Thoroughbreds
