Snitzerland Wins Gr3 Champagne Stakes
Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Arrowfield Stud stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Gr3 success when the filly Snitzerland (Snitzel-Monte Rosa, by Fraar) scored by 1.75-lengths for trainer Gerald Ryan in the $150,000 Gr3 Champagne Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies at Moonee Valley, over fellow fillies Hoss Amor (General Nediym-With Love, by Favorite Trick) & Saturn Rock (Fastnet Rock-Satin Robes, by Ne Coupez Pas). Winning a Group hat-trick since her return this season, Snitzerland (a $125,000 yearling consigned by Bellerive Stud at the 2011 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) took her record to 5 wins & 2 runners-up (including the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes) from 8 starts for $1,174,800 earnings.
