Snippetson Wins Schweppervescence
Ill-fated Arrowfield Stud sire Snippets (Lunchtime-Easy Date, by Grand Chaudiere) added a black-type success when 4YO entire Snippetson (Snippets-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) returned from a 27-week spell to lead all-the-way & record a 0.75-lengths win in the $100,000 Listed The Schweppervescence (1200m) at Rosehill. Snippetson (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer John O'Shea) defeated top-weighted 8YO gelding Mustard (Vettori-Altezza, by Rigoletto) & 6YO mare Shannon Bank (Bluebird-Lusty's Bank, by Sovereign Red). Snippetson (a $550,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 4 wins & 4 runner-ups in 12 starts for $247,325 earnings; he is among 55 individual stakes-winners for his sire Snippets.
