Sizzling Wins Bollinger Champagne Classic

Monday, 21st May 2012

Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Arrowfield Stud stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a juvenile group success when favoured colt Sizzling (Snitzel-Admirelle, by General Nediym) scored by a short-head in the $175,000 Gr2 Bollinger Champagne Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at Doomben. Sizzling (ridden by Chris Munce for trainer Kelso Wood) defeated the gelding Academus (Lonhro-Youthful Presence, by Dehere) & fellow colt Dances On Stars (Snitzel-Starnet, by Last Tycoon). Sizzling (a $260,000 yearling consigned by Evergreen Stud at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 3 wins (also including last start's Listed Ken Russell Memorial Classic over 1200m at the Gold Coast on May 5) & 2 runners-up (in 2011's Gr3 B.J.McLachlan Stakes over 1200m at Doomben & Listed Phelan Ready Stakes over 1000m at Eagle Farm) from 6 starts for $310,500 earnings.
