Big Payday for Snitzel
Mark Smith - Saturday, 7 April 2012

Gerald Ryan's faith in his former star sprinter Snitzel was amply rewarded on Golden Slipper day at Rosehill when the 2yo filly Flying Snitzel opened proceedings with a gallant win in the Group 3 The Schweppervescence while 2yo filly Snitzerland earned $620,000 his long-neck second in the day's feature, the $3,5 million AAMI Golden Slipper.

To top of a great day for the Arrowfield based stallion, the $100 shot Aliyana Tilde finished third, for trainer Kerry Parker, in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakesbehind the start fillies Mosheen and Streama while at Caulfield the progressive Sheila's Star stormed to a near 4-length victory over 1400 metres, her third win a row.

Flying Snitzel became the sixth stakes-winner for his young sire with a half-length victory over Dear Demi (Dehere) with Strength (Casino Prince) 2-lengths back in third.

Ryan will now target the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick with the filly.

"Right from last year, when she started, she was a 1400 or 1600-metre horse," Ryan said. "The Champagne (Stakes) has always been her aim.

"Whether she is good enough, we'll have to wait and see."

Flying Snitzel has proven an astute buy for Triple Crown Syndications who needed just $25,000 to secure the daughter of Snitzel from the Bellerive Stud consignment at the 2011 Inglis Premier Yearling sale.

A half-sister to six winners, Flying Snitzel is the eleventh foal and first stakes winner for the Group 1AJC Metropolitan Stakes (2600m) winner Hula Flight.

A daughter of the Sir Tristram stallion Hula Town, Hula Flight died in 2010 without producing another foal.
