Snitzel’s son Perast showed his Group 3 win at Caulfield last Spring was no fluke when he ran his rivals ragged in Saturday’s $100,000 BRC Queensland Day S. 1350m LR.
The 3YO colt was bred by Jonathan Munz’s GSA Bloodstock and bought by trainer Paul Perry for $100,000 from the Maluka Thoroughbreds draft at the 2016 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.
Paul, who also appears in the ownership alongside Francis & Christine Cook and partners, said, “He was a fit horse today and he’s had those few runs back, and once he settled and got past halfway, he looked good. I think that’s the best he’s been today and he should improve off that.”
Perast stays in Brisbane and will start again before tackling either the $350,000 Queensland Guineas G2 or the $1.5 million Stradbroke H. G1 on 9 June.
He is the best of four winners out of Listed winner Thousand Veils, and the third stakeswinner from 30 runners bred on the Snitzel/Zabeel cross, after Time For War and Lubiton. Sadly, Thousand Veils died in January, leaving behind her sixth and final foal, a colt by Smart Missile.
Perast’s is one of Snitzel’s 26 individual Australian stakeswinners this season – just one short of a new outright record -and his second stakes victory takes Snitzel’s tally for 2017/18 to 42 Group and Listed wins.
