Hot Snitzel completes dream week for Bellerive Stud

The result of today’s ATC Royal Sovereign S. 1200m G2 at Warwick Farm completed a dream week for Bellerive Stud, two days before their 2012 yearling draft heads south for the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

The courageous Royal Sovereign winner Hot Snitzel ( Snitzel ) was sold by Bellerive at the 2010 Melbourne Sale, while Rekindled Alliance ( Redoute’s Choice ) who stormed home for fourth, was a $400,000 Blue Sky Thoroughbreds purchase from the Stud’s Inglis Australian Easter Sale that same year.

Now a dual Group 2 winner with earnings of more than $630,000, Hot Snitzel was bought for $60,000 by Chris and Michael Ward’s Triple Crown Syndications. They also signed for recent debut winner Flying Snitzel (Snitzel) from last year’s Bellerive Stud draft in Melbourne.

On Wednesday, two other Bellerive graduates from the 2011 Melbourne Sale, Snitzerland (you guessed it, she’s by Snitzel too) and Road Trippin’ ( Charge Forward ) ran one-two in the $250,000 Inglis Premier 2YO Stakes at Mornington.

The Bellerive Stud draft for this year’s Melbourne Sale includes five colts by Snitzel, a filly and a colt by Charge Forward and two Redoute’s Choice fillies.
