First Group 1 performer for Snitzel


First Group 1 performer for Snitzel

The last foal of Arrowfield mare Flames of Paris has given young Arrowfield sire Snitzel his first Group 1 performer, Hot Snitzel, second in today’s $500,000 BRC T.J. Smith S. 1600m G1.

And what a brave effort it was. Hot Snitzel worked hard to make the lead, withstood substantial pressure during the run and kicked strongly after the turn to make what looked like a winning break. Only Benfica, who camped off the pace, was able to make ground on him and finally prevailed by 1.3 lengths, with Playtime more than four lengths away in third position.

Hot Snitzel’s performance took his record to three wins and four placings from nine starts, and prizemoney of $454,400 – a handsome return on the $60,000 that Triple Crown Syndications paid for him at the 2010 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, where he was offered by Bellerive Stud.

A Group-1 winning son of Redoute’s Choice , Snitzel is the sire of ten stakes performers from his first two Australian crops, including G2 winners Salade and Chance Bye, and stakeswinner Zelsnitz, as well Hot Snitzel, who won last weekend’s BRC Sires’ Produce S. G2.

Snitzel is second only to another son of Redoute’s Choice, Stratum, on the 2010/11 Australian 2nd Season Sires’ list. Snitzel is available to breeders in 2011 at a fee of $27,500 inc. GST.
