Team Snowden Elated by Filly

Thursday, 19th July 2018

Co-trainer Paul Snowden has identified smart filly Pure Elation as one of Team Snowden's most exciting prospects leading into the spring. Raced by Sir Owen Glenn's Go Bloodstock Australia, Pure Elation (I Am Invincible-Members Joy, by Hussonet) showed a stack of promise in the autumn finishing runner-up to Golden Slipper winner Estijaab in the Gr2 Reisling Stakes, before rounding out her campaign with a strong win in the Gr2 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) at Randwick. That win, however, was not without incident, with the rising 3YO suffering a bleeding attack during the race. "We're quite excited about her," Paul Snowden told racenet. "She had her mandatory two-month spell in the paddock, and an eight-week spell for a young horse is gold. She's really turned into a lovely filly." He added: "She's only been in the stables for three weeks and we're going to bring her up nice and steady. You'll probably see her step out at the trials mid-August at the earliest." Pure Elation holds Group 1 entries in races such as the Golden Rose, Flight Stakes and Thousand Guineas, but Snowden said no targets had been locked in as yet. "We're going to be guided by her but she's very exciting," he said. "We'll enter her for whatever she's eligible for but she will decide her targets."
