Snippetson Retired To Stud

Tuesday, 11th April 2006

The 4YO entire Snippetson (Snippets-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) who returned from a 27-week spell to lead all-the-way & win Saturday's $100,000 Listed The Schweppervescence (1200m) at Rosehill has been retired & "will go to stud later in the year," reported racenet.com.au. Trainer John O'Shea confirmed yesterday: "Connections have chosen to retire him on a high & he won't race again. At this stage it is not known where he will be standing." Snippetson (a $550,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) recorded 4 wins & 4 runner-ups in 12 starts for $247,325 earnings; he is among 55 individual stakes-winners for his ill-fated Arrowfield Stud sire Snippets (Lunchtime-Easy Date, by Grand Chaudiere).
