Arrowfield Stud is gearing up for an emotional week in Sydney, where the final set of Not A Single Doubt longings will be offered for sale at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
The son of Redoute’s Choice has been a mainstay on the Hunter Valley ranch where he was raised and where he stands since retiring from competition in 2005.
Now 20 years old, Not A Single Doubt retired in 2019 due to lung disease and in line with his last wish in the Easter category – Lot 400, an Anabaa Sananda mare – is being prepared. for sale by Arrowfield.
“We are incredibly proud of him as a home-bred stallion and he will be loved and cared for at Arrowfield for the rest of his life,” said Jon Freyer, farm manager. Arrowfield Stud said.
Not A Single Doubt raced 10 times, with Zeditave listed as the biggest of his four, while he also finished second behind Sydney 2YO Triple Crown winner later in the Dance Hero Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
He went on to become one of the most sought-after stallions in Australia, producing 16 Group 1 winners, including 2020 Golden Sandals winner Farnan, Blue Diamond Miracles Of Life winner. and Extreme Choice and two winners of Group 1 Kennedy, Scales Of Justice and Shout The Bar.

Not A Single Doubt’s worldwide brood earnings are now $150 million, he’s been Australia’s top 10 studs since 2015 and top 10 studs for a decade.
In 2015/16, he was the nation’s top crossbreed of the Southern Hemisphere generation with a global fortune of over $15 million and was the #1 breed of three-year-olds.
Freyer and the entire team are proud of what he has achieved, especially given that it took him a few seasons to establish himself as a Staking artist.
“In the fall of 2010, with two races, he had 50 winners and half a dozen Bets horses but no Bet winners, so his sixth book was getting harder and harder to fill, ‘ Freyer recalled.
“Then two Bet winners emerged from the great stables of the city; Jack is suspicious with Peter Moody in Melbourne and Squamosa with Gai Waterhouse in Sydney.
“He served 192 mares in 2010, and then Queen Karuta came to the scene. She won the 2011 Magic Millions 2YO Classic, and by the end of that season, Not A Single Doubt had 6 Staking winners and was 18th in the lead role of General Sires.
“He went up and down and he never looked back.”
