Samantha Wins Listed Fireball Stakes

Monday, 6th March 2017

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's high profile Gr1 winning stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippet's Lass, by Snippets), added a black-type success when Corumbene Stud-bred 3YO chestnut filly Samantha (Snitzel-Icedginger, by Tale of the Cat) saluted by 0.5 length for trainer Gerald Ryan in the $125,000 Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) for 3YO's, over Glenall (Redoute's Choicel-Our Quivira, by Spinning World) & Super Maxi (Redoute's Choice-Ocean Challenger, by Rubiton). Interestingly, this is the second year in a row that Snitzel has sired the winner of the Fireball Stakes on a heavy surface with Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich, by Rubiton) winning the 2016 edition. Redzel added further merit by finishing runner up in the Gr2 ATC Challenger Stakes on Saturday's card (see full race details above). Samantha has now won 3 of her 5 starts for total earnings of $144,330.
