Snippets Land Wins Listed Canberra National Sprint
At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Widden Stud's dual stakes-winning stallion Snippetson (Snippets-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Snippets Land (Snippetson-Seduction Line, by Testa Rossa) scored by 1-length for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $120,000 Listed Canberra National Sprint (1400m) for 3YO+, over 5YO geldings Mighty Lucky (Casino Prince-Buxom Babe, by Octagonal) & Darciwood (Darci Brahma-Natalie Wood, by Yachtie). This was the first stakes victory for Snippets Land who was a $120,000 purchase by bloodstock agent Steve Brem at the 2012 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Raheen Stud. Snippets Land took his record to 4 wins and 4 placings from 11 starts for $155,290 earnings.
