At Flemington in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO bay colt Snitzepeg (Snitzel-Pegasus Queen, by Fusaichi Pegasus) claimed his maiden stakes win in the $120,000 Listed Antler Luggage Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, defeating boom colt Bravo Tango & Sircconi. Snitzepeg, who is a half-brother to Gr3 ATC Ming Dynasty Handicap winner Metallic Crown, was a $260,000 purchase by John Foote and his trainer Darren Weir at the 2016 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Three Bridges Thoroughbreds. He improved his record to 2 wins and 2 placings from 9 starts for $125,530 in earnings.
