At Caulfield in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning Australian Champion Stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) powered into the new season with another Gr3 winner when unbeaten 3YO colt Jukebox (Snitzel-Jestajune, by Rory's Jester) was strong late to capture the $150,000 Gr3 Vain Stakes (1100m) for 3YO colts for trainer Ciaron Maher. Jukebox defied Plutocracy and Prompt Response and took his record to 3 wins on the bounce for $240,900 earnings. Jukebox was a $200,000 Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling purchase from the draft of Blue Gum Farm and hinted that further distances would not be an issue in winning the Vain Stakes. He descends from a diverse family that includes multiple Group-winning gelding Catapulted and Gr1 Kingston Town Stakes-winning Itsahymn.
