At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group race success when 3YO chestnut colt Showtime (Snitzel - Flidais, by Timber Country) opened his stake account when leading throughout for a determined win in the $200,000 Gr2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs, defeating Salsamor & Holy Snow. The well-bred Showtime improved his record to 2 wins and 4 placings (including the Gr2 Sliver Slipper Stakes) from 9 starts for $238,730 in earnings. A $1.1 million yearling from the draft of Arrowfield Stud at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, Showtime is a full-brother to Gr1 Galaxy winner Sweet Idea. The duo's dam is Gr1 Metropolitan & Gr1 Ranvet Stakes winner Electronic.
