Snitzel sprints into the new season
No sooner had Snitzel sealed his fourth straight Australian Sires’ Premiership, than he got to work on 2020/21 with five Saturday metropolitan winners.
Prometheus, Snitzel’s first runner of the new season, and Dissolution both won at Eagle Farm, while Arrowfield graduate Adana and 4YO mares De Grawin & Fulmina compiled an impressive treble at Randwick.
De Grawin won the Four Time Champion Sire Snitzel Sprint over 1000m for her in-form trainer Joe Pride, whose stable has notched up a dozen wins in the past month.

It’s the third win from 5 starts by the mare, a home-bred for Lockyer Thoroughbreds which also raced her Group 2-winning dam De Lightning Ridge (by Tale of the Cat).
By day’s end Snitzel had banked $315,000 – more than 40% of his progeny earnings in the whole of August 2019, and well above his prizemoney on the first Saturdays of the last four seasons.
With plenty of talent still emerging from his 2016 & 2017 crops, 155 just-turned 2YOs and a powerful team of older performers in training, Snitzel is already taking aim at title number 5.
