Redzel Wins Listed Fireball Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning high profile stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO gelding Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich, by Rubiton) scored by 0.3-length for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $125,000 Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO gelding Takedown (Stratum-Apamea, by Zafonic) & 3YO filly Egyptian Symbol (Stratum-Our Egyptian Raine, by Desert Sun). This was the first stakes victory for Redzel who took his record to 2 wins and 3 placings (including the Gr3 ATC Kindergarten Stakes) from 8 starts for $160,700 earnings. Redzel, who is out of the 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.
