Snitzel Enjoys Stellar Melbourne Cup Day
The Hong Kong Jockey Club-sponsored feature, won by Akari (see above) is the sixth stakes success for Arrowfield Stud’s reigning champion sire Snitzel this season, following Akari’s maiden stakes win at Randwick on 19 October and the work of Exhilarates, Redzel and Wayupinthesky earlier in the Spring. Akari was the cherry on top of a rewarding day for Snitzel, as she completed a Flemington double opened with a dominant win by Ingham Racing’s 4YO mare Sure Knee (ex Shawnee Girl by Encosta de Lago) in the $125,000 VRC TAB Trophy over 1700 metres. Meanwhile at Randwick, Mr Snitzel himself, Gerald Ryan sent out Mansa Musa (ex One Sweet Day by Elusive Quality) for his third win from 6 starts.
