While Not A Single Doubt looks likely to come up short in the race for the champion sires title for the 2015-16 racing year, it is the season he emerged from the shadow of his sire Redoute's Choice and paternal half-brother Snitzel at Arrowfield Stud.
Not a Single Doubt had just one Group 1 winner on the board when the season commenced in August last year, the Blue Diamond Stakes heroine Miracles Of Life.
He doubled that total when the Chris Waller-trained Good Project took out the WATC Railway Stakes (1200m) at Ascot in November.
One of the star two-year-olds of the season has been the Mick-Price-trained Extreme Choice who became the third Group 1 winner for Not A Single Doubt when he strolled home in the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield.
Nothing panned out for the chestnut in the Golden Slipper in which he started a short-priced favourite. After missing the start he continually ran into traffic problems so his eighth place finish was full of merit.
