At Flemington in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO bay gelding Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich, by Rubiton) capped a stellar spring campaign when leading throughout for a brilliant win in the $1 million Gr1 Darley Classic (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating Terravista & Impending. Redzel improved his record to 11 wins (including The Everest, Gr1 Doomben 10,000, Gr2 Shorts, Gr3 Concorde Stakes, Gr3 Hall Mark Stakes, Gr3 Heath Stakes & Listed Fireball Stakes) and 5 placings (including the Gr1 ATC Galaxy Handicap, Gr2 Shorts, Gr2 ATC Challenge Stakes & Gr3 ATC Kindergarten Stakes) from 21 starts for $7,797,750 in earnings. Co-trainer Peter Snowden said Redzel's victory proved once and for all that he was the pre-eminent sprinter in Australia. "I thought he did that [proved he was Australia's best sprinter] in The Everest but the hype around him said that he needed to do it again and that's what this guy keeps doing; he keeps proving the doubters wrong and keeps getting it done via professional performances," Snowden told "It was another dominant win." Redzel, who is out of Gr3 Sweet Embrace Stakes winner & Golden Slipper placegetter Millrich, was a $120,000 purchase by Triple Crown Syndications at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Marquee Stud. He was originally sold for $45,000 at the 2013 Inglis Australian Bloodstock Select Weanling Sale.
