Brother of Absolute Harmony, Eclair Choice, Wins SA Horse of the Year!
Written on the 5 September 2016
Team Thoroughbreds just knew they were onto a good thing when they invested into this family that's produced a 2 x Group 2 winner, by purchasing Stryker X Absolute Harmony last year. Absolute Harmony is the sister of newly announced South Australian Horse of the Year, Eclair Choice.
The TRSA Industry Awards held at the Gala Dinner on Saturday night, at Morphettville Racecourse, saw the 5yo gelding, Eclair Choice (brother of Absolute Harmony) the favourite choice among other nominees, Don't Doubt Mamma and Happy Trails.
This is the second win for Eclair Choice owner Thomas Li, who last year at the same event, won SA Horse of the Year with Hucklebuck. Both thoroughbreds also trained by Phillip Stokes.

From Stokes' Morphettville base, Eclair Choice swept two Group 2s in Melbourne - the Caulfield Spring (in a dead heat) and the Linlithgow Stakes, as well as both Group 3's and listed placings with earnings to date of around $500,000 from just 20 starts.
Son of California Dame to dam Bounce and brother to Absolute Harmony, Eclair Choice is a graduate of Newhaven Park and was picked up by Thomas Li for the bargain price of $5,000 at the 2012 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
If you'd backed Eclair Choice throughout his career, you'd have achieved a very healthy152% return on your investment. We endeavour to have the same results or better with Stryker X Absolute Harmony (Absolute Harmony being the sister of Eclair Choice). We still have shares available in this stunning bay colt, who's ticking all the right boxes, starting at just $2,571 for a 5% share. Now's the time to invest, with this great looking colt starting another pre-training campaign today and expected to be at the races soon.
