Sizzling Wins Gr1 T.J.Smith

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Arrowfield Stud stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a juvenile Gr1 triumph when favoured colt Sizzling (Snitzel-Admirelle, by General Nediym) notched his 4th successive stakes-win in just over a month with victory by a short-head in the $500,000 Gr1 Patinack Farm T.J.Smith (1600m) for 2YOs at Eagle Farm. Sizzling (ridden by Chris Munce for trainer Kelso Wood) defeated the geldings Kabayan (Haradasun-Tarlaquena, by Don Eduardo) & Academus (Lonhro-Youthful Presence, by Dehere). Sizzling (a $260,000 yearling consigned by Evergreen Stud at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 5 wins (also including last start's Gr2 BRC Sires' Produce Stakes over 1400m at Eagle Farm on June 2, plus both May's Gr2 Bollinger Champagne Classic over 1200m at Doomben & Listed Ken Russell Memorial Classic over 1200m at the Gold Coast) & 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 8 starts for $797,500 earnings.
