Lady Sniper Wins Listed Gosford Guineas
At Gosford on the NSW Central Coast, former Widden Stud and now Scenic Lodge-based dual stakes-winning stallion Snippetson (Snippets-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Lady Sniper (Snippetson-Lady Titus, by Arena) scored by 1.3-lengths for trainer Bjorn Baker in the $150,000 Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) for 3YOs, over fellow filly Kimberley Star (Star Witness-Kiss the Sun, by Anabaa) & 3YO gelding Chetwood (Exceed and Excel-Eldarin, by Marauding). This was the first stakes victory for Lady Sniper who took her record to 4 wins and 4 placings from 11 starts for $306,275 earnings. Lady Sniper was a $1,500 purchase at the 2013 Inglis Weanling & Broodmare Sale before being subsequently sold for $20,000 to Boomer Bloodstock at the 2014 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
