Snitzel's Amazing Run Continues

Snitzel’s amazing run of black type success continued on Saturday when a double at Flemington made it 13 stakes winners in 68 days for the ruling champion sire.

Lindsay Park and Shadwell Stud combined to win the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes for 2YOs for the second consecutive year after Nomothaj (Sniztel x Real Stolle by Elusive Quality) took out the Listed race followed by the win of the Darren Weir trained 3YO Snitzepeg (Snitzel x Pegasus Queen by Fusachi Pegasus) in the Listed Poseidon Stakes.

The double gives Snitzel a career tally of 72 stakes winners.

The 13 Australian black type winners Snitzel has compiled since August 1 are half of his final total in 2016/17 which clearly has him heading for a record breaking season. Snitzel currently leads the Australian Sires' premiership with 49 winners and $4.2 million prizemoney.

Nomothaj Horseform, a $420,000 purchase from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, followed last year’s Maribyrnong Trial win by the Shadwell-owned the Madeenaty (Exceed And Excel) and is Snitzel's 28th juvenile stakes winner.

Bred by Donna Love, Nomothaj is the second foal and first winner out of the 2011 Maribyrnong Plate winner Real Stolle (Elusive Quality), who delivered another Snitzel filly in August.

Real Stolle was purchased by James Harron Bloodstock at the 2013 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale for $325,000 from the Patinack Farm draft. She has a yearling colt by Exceed And Excel and a filly foal by Snitzel.

The Snitzel/Elusive Quality cross has also produced Dracarys, successful in the G3 Up And Coming Stakes in August.

The filly’s second dam Lemon Ruski (Desert King) is a half-sister to Listed winner Chattanooga (Scenic), who won 14 races.

Lemon Ruski is also a half-sister to the Group Two-placed Flying Spice (Flying Spur) and Listed-placed Cooktown (Brief Truce).

Snitzepeg Horseform was bred in Victoria by Jeff Allis from the Fusaichi Pegasus mare Pegasus Queen and was purchased for $260,000 by Darren Weir and John Foote at the 2016 Melbourne Premier Sale.

Pegasus Queen has a 2YO filly by Not A Single Doubt and a yearling colt by Deep Field.

R1 FLEMINGTON 7 October 2017
Maribyrnong Trial Stakes 2 , 1000m
Race Synopsis: Nomothaj looked quite professional in winning here, breaking quickly from barrier six to take up the early running, the entire field heading towards the inside rail. At the crossing she co-led and inside the 300m jockey Stephen Baster asked the question and she responded well yet there were four real chances at the 200m. Maintaining a solid clip, she edged very slightly ahead then had to withstand a persistent challenge short of the line but held on determinedly by a nose - a good effort and in a fairly good time. Ranier was widest but handy enough at the crossing, moved closer at the 300m and challenged strongly over the last 100m only to be held by a nose from the favourite Sunlight, who was always close to the lead but faded a little over the last 100m, not far away in third.
