Sizzling stakes quinella for Snitzel


Sizzling stakes quinella for Snitzel

Snitzel ‘s army of brilliant 2YOs continued its relentless march today when Sizzling and Dances on Stars filled the first two placings in the $100,000 GCTC Ken Russell Memorial Classic 1200m LR.

Racing for the first time since his fourth in January’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic, Sizzling (ex Admirelle by General Nediym) was forced wide rounding the turn, but quickly reeled in the leaders and raced clear to win by 4.5 lengths.

“Brilliant,” trainer Kelso Wood told AAP from the mounting yard after the race. “That’s all I can say. He’ll run in the Champagne Classic at Doomben next start then go to the Sires’ Produce and the TJ Smith.”

Bred by John & Trish Muir’s Milburn Creek Thoroughbreds, Sizzling was a $260,000 purchase from Evergreen Stud Farm by bloodstock agent John Foote at last year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. The colt’s owners include David & Diane Devine who have also enjoyed success with another Wood-trained, Arrowfield-sired stakeswinner, Zero Rock.

Sizzling and G3 winner Dances on Stars are among Snitzel’s remarkable tally of 17 Australian stakes performers this season, and Sizzling becomes the 8th stakeswinner for the brilliant son of Redoute’s Choice.

Of those 17 current season stakes performers, no fewer than eight are juveniles.

Snitzel stands the 2012 season at a fee of $33,000 inc. GST.
