Snitzel Wins Challenge Stakes

Monday, 3rd April 2006

Arrowfield Stud stallion Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a group success when favoured 3YO colt Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) defeated the older horses to score a 1.25-lengths victory in yesterday's $130,000 weight-for-age Gr2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Warwick Farm in Sydney. Snitzel (ridden by Craig Newitt for trainer Gerald Ryan) defeated multiple Gr1-winning 5YO gelding Spark Of Life (Nine Carat-Sparkling Bounty, by Celestial Bounty) & 3YO filly Media (Gilded Time-Valourina, by Snippets). Snitzel (a $260,000 yearling at the 2004 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 7 wins (also including the Gr1 Oakleigh Plate over 1100m in February & Gr3 Up & Coming Stakes over 1200m last August, following juvenile victories in the Gr3 Skyline Stakes, Listed Breeders' Plate & Magic Millions 2YO Classic) & 3 placings (including last start in the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap over 1200m on March 11) in 13 starts for $957,050 earnings.
