Snitzel Puts the $16 million Peg Behind Again
For the fourth season in a row, Australia's champion sire for the past three seasons, Snitzel, has broken through the $16 million mark. The ultra-consistent sire-son of ill-fated champion sire Redoute's Choice is on the verge of being crowned Champion Sire again for the current season having put deep space between himself and a chasing pack that includes Pierro ($14,788,003), I Am Invincible ($14,355,155), pensioned barn mate Not A Single Doubt ($11,805,614) and deceased Sebring ($11,147,865). In fact, the top 10 have all surpassed seasonal progeny earnings of $10 million, also including Fastnet Rock, Rubick, Exceed and Excel, Zoustar and Written Tycoon.
