Snippetson Filly Snares Rich QTIS Feature
Breednet - Media Release - Sunday, 5 February 2012

Quality filly Snipzu bounced back from her ninth placing in the $2 million BMW Magic Millions 2YO Classic with a dominant victory in today's $150,000 QTIS Plate (1200m) at the Sunshine Coast.

A dual city winner and three time stakes placegetter leading into the event, Snipzu was sent out the second elect and after a lovely run she proved too strong for a select field.


A member of the Liam Birchley stable, Snipzu (pictured as a yearling) is raced by a large team of owners and they were not surprisingly all smiles after the race.

The filly has turned out an incredible money spinner for those connections.

She cost Birchley just $80,000 from the draft of Yarramalong Park for $80,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Under the urgings of Glen Colless, Snipzu ($3.10) was able to cruise to the line two lengths clear of Platinum State ($6).

The runner-up was in turn a lip ahead of the third placegetter, Saluter ($4.40).

The win was the third for the quality filly with her earnings racing to $289,000 from just seven lifetime outings.

Snipzu is a daughter of promising young sire, former outstanding Magic Millions graduate Snippetson.

She is one of five winners for the 100 per cent winner producer Pilgrim.

A daughter of champion sire and broodmare sire Danehill, Pilgrim is a half sister to Arkady - a Group One winner of the Ranvet Stakes.

She is also a half sister to Arkadina - the dam of stakes winners Olonana and Super Savings - as well as the dam of crack Perth youngster Paris Petard.
