At Caulfield racecourse 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) made it consecutive stakes victories when scoring a tough on-pace win in the $120,000 Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) for 3YO colts & geldings, defeating Lord Sundowner & Wassergeist. 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 3 wins (including the Listed Antler Luggage Stakes) and 2 placings from 10 starts for $204,850 in earnings.
