Snitzel tracks another record

Snitzel's remarkably consistent accumulation of black-type sire successes has him on track to be crowned the leading producer of Australian stakes winners for the fifth season. The Arrowfield Stud sire also remains an outside chance of breaking the seasonal record of his great rival I Am Invincible.

With Lofty Strike's impressive victory in the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Colts and Geldings) on Saturday, Snitzel now has 13 Australian stakes winners for the season (14 inc New Zealand), putting him two stakes winners clear of I Am Invincible in the battle to be crowned Australia's top stakes producer of 2021/22.

With stakes racing building up towards its autumn peak, the past few weeks have been particularly successful for Snitzel progeny with four individual stakes winners since January 29.

That Australian tally of 13 stakes winners is the equal second-biggest haul ever for Snitzel to this point of a season and puts him in with a chance of matching his own seasonal best tally of 26 Australian black-type winners by July 31.

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.

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.
