At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning high profile stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when boom 3YO colt Russian Revolution (Snitzel-Ballet d'Amour, by Stravinsky) maintained his perfect record when scoring by 0.2 length for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $300,000 Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO colts Astern (Medaglia d'Oro-Essaouira, by Exceed and Excel) & Capitalist (Written Tycoon-Kitalpha, by Fusaichi Pegasus). Russian Revolution extended his unbeaten record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Vain Stakes) from 4 starts for $372,725 earnings. Russian Revolution races in the red and yellow star silks of the China Horse Club which purchased him for $320,000 at the 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Vinery Stud. Russian Revolution is a direct descendant of celebrated blue hen Fanfreluche, ancestress of former champion Australian sires Encosta de Lago and Flying Spur and Coolmore stallion Holy Roman Emperor.
