Menari Heads Snitzel Treble

Monday, 14th August 2017

Less than a fortnight after landing his first Australian Sires Premiership, Snitzel has put up his first city treble of the new season, including Menari, a dashing winner of the $150,000 Listed Rosebud (1100m) at Rosehill. The handsome colt with the striking white blaze is the second son of Snitzel to win the Rosebud following Thronum's success last year, and the 65th stakes winner on Snitzel's lifetime record. Trainer Gerald Ryan, recording his 13th stakes winner by former stable star Snitzel, can justly feel that his assessment of Menari as an unlucky 2YO has been vindicated. The $1 million Gr1 Golden Rose (1400m) on 23 September is the obvious target for him, but Ryan believes he's also a genuine prospect for The Everest. Whichever way Menari goes, the Gr3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) on 26 August is his likely next start. Jockey Josh Parr said: "He's an exceptionally talented horse. I know it sounds a little bit arrogant but I was so confident his ability could overcome the bias of the track today.” He added: “He's as good as anything I've sat on. I won't say any more." Menari supplied the final leg of Snitzel's Rosehill treble, following the Waterhouse & Bott-trained Arbeitsam's defiant win over 1800 metres, and The Pharoah's success over 1350 metres for owner-breeder Ottavio Galletta and Gerald Ryan.
