wild-ruler-webTwo special sons of Snitzel have combined to deliver the type of weekend that dreams are made of for Newgate Farm Managing Director Henry Field.

In a dizzying period spanning just under 20 hours, Newgate and long-time allies such as the China Horse Club and Go Bloodstock struck stallion-making Group 1 gold in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Wild Ruler (Snitzel) provided the first leg of the massive double on Friday night with a tenacious performance to narrowly win the G1 Charter Keck Cramer Moir S. at Moonee Valley.

The following afternoon at Rosehill, 3-year-old colt In The Congo (Snitzel) added a Group 1 sparkle to his very first racing preparation with an all-the-way win in race-record time in the XXXX Golden Rose.

Within the first eight weeks of the season, Snitzel has also been represented by Group 2 winners Splintex and Four Moves Ahead, Group 3 winner Bruckner, and Listed winner and Group 2-placed Mr Mozart.

Record-breaking Rose for In The Congo

September 26, 2021

in-the-congo-golden-rose5Hall of Fame trainer Gai Waterhouse boasts an unparalleled seven wins in the G1 Golden Slipper S., and now she has a G1 Golden Rose to sit alongside them on the mantelpiece.

In The Congo (Snitzel), trained by Waterhouse in partnership with Adrian Bott, delivered a supreme front-running performance to win Rosehill’s spring showpiece in a time of 1:21.46 – breaking the previous race record of 1:21.83 set by Exosphere in 2015.

Many expected the Golden Rose to be at the mercy of impressive G2 Run to the Rose winner Anamoe (Street Boss {USA}), but instead it was In The Congo who stole the show.

Ridden by Tim Clark, In The Congo never gave his rivals a look in and kept up a strong gallop all the way to the finish line, holding on to beat the late-finishing Anamoe by 0.2l.

New Group winner for Dundeel

September 19, 2021

ShesIdeel-HomepageAfter five wins and five Group placings, two at Group 1 level, Dundeel’s splendid daughter She’s Ideel broke through for a well-deserved Group victory in Saturday’s $160,000 ATC Kingston Town S. 2000m G3.

In becoming Dundeel’s 15th stakeswinner, she defeated dual Group 1 winner Montefilia and Group winner Entente, also by Dundeel.

As She’s Ideel’s trainer Bjorn Baker said, “It was a pretty easy watch throughout.”

Bred by Brian Nutt’s Attunga Stud in partnership with the Estate of Mr G. Coull, She’s Ideel is raced by the Stud with a large group of family & friends who now look forward to her next start, in The Metropolitan G1 on 2 October, with the $7.75 million Melbourne Cup G1 her major Spring target.

Entente seals second Group victory

September 26, 2021

Entente-25Sep-HomepageHe may be named for a friendly understanding between states, but Dundeel’s 5YO son Entente is a fiercely competitive performer who added a second Group victory to his record on Saturday.

His success in Saturday’s $160,000 Colin Stephen Quality 2400m G3 at Rosehill came a week after his excellent third behind Dundeel’s daughter She’s Ideel in the Kingston Town S. G3. The pair may well meet again in next Saturday’s $1 million The Metropolitan G1.

Jockey Tim Clark was quick to point out the contrast between Entente’s last two runs. “He’s very versatile. He led that ten furlong race last week and there he was running fifth in the 2400. He’s pretty push button now and it’s good to see him get another win.”

Bred by Philip Bennett & his daughter Steph Bansemer-Brown, Entente was purchased by Shaun Dwyer for $105,000 from the Bombora Downs draft at the Inglis Premier Sale. He has now earned $676,000 in a six-win, 20-start career for his Queensland owners Peter & June Dunn of Dodmark Thoroughbreds.
