Champagne Cuddles Injury Recovery Positive
Following a career-ending injury inflicted in last Saturday’s $1 million Magic Millions Snippets at the Gold Coast, where she was galloped on, valuable mare Champagne Cuddles (Not a Single Doubt-Sky Cuddle, by Snippets) is recovering well, reports AAP. By leading Arrowfield stallion Not A Single Doubt out of Gr1 Cantala Stakes winner Sky Cuddle, Champagne Cuddles has lived up to her pedigree on the track; the dual Group winner boasts Gr1 placings in the Golden Rose, Flight Stakes, Kingsford-Smith Cup and the Stradbroke Handicap, and she has a huge future at stud, where she will head now. Trainer Bjorn Baker indicated that the earner of almost $1.5 million will head back to Stuart Ramsey’s Turangga Farm in the Hunter Valley where she was bred to prepare for the 2020 breeding season.
