Snitzel's Immortal Love Impresses on Debut

Mark Smith - Monday May 4

The Bel Esprit mare Loveyamadly really is the gift that keeps on giving for Peter Creighton’s United Syndications.

Purchased for $60,000 out of the Yallambee Stud draft at the 2010 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, Loveyamadly went on to win six and place in three of her 13 starts with earnings of $319,338.

She won the Listed Abel Stakes and was a Group III runner-up but consider how her pedigree page has improved.

When she was sold, Loveyamadly’s page read the third foal with one to race.

Then her year older half-brother American Crew (Stratum) placed in the Group 1 BRC TJ Smith Classic.

Her two-year younger half-brother Hi World (High Chaparral) wins a pair of Group IIIs while banking $341,025. He is followed by another half-brother Lite'n In My Veins (Henrythenavigator) who also numbered a pair of Group III wins and two Listed wins with earnings of $809,090.

He is followed by the stakes-placed Where's Wally (Rogano) a 7-time winner of $179,800, who is followed by the talented Snitzel colt Ducimus, a $700,000 yearling,  who won the Listed VRC Talindert Stakes and was runner-up in the Group II Pago Pago Stakes before taking up residence at Rivercrest Park.

So now Loveyamadly is a valuable stakes-winning mare, a half-sister to three stakes-winners and two stakes-placegetters.

United chose to breed from Loveyamadly whose first foal Classic Gaming (Medaglia D'Oro) was sold for $200,000 at the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. He has won two and placed in four of his nine starts to date.

United kept the next two foals of Loveyamadly a filly and a colt by Snitzel.

The Snitzel filly named Bella Amore who broke her maiden at Sandown in December.

The now gelded two-year-old Immortal Love broke his maiden in impressive fashion when making his career debut over 1100 metres at Echuca on Monday.

Not the best to begin, Craig Newitt took advantage of inside barrier to push through to chase the leader Suprina (Super One) who he collared at the 200 metres to win by two lengths with Palace Whisper (Street Boss) a short-neck back in third.

Michael Kent Jnr who trains in partnership with Mick Price said they did not  really know what to expect from the gelding on debut.

“It was impressive the way he pulled away from Suprina on the line, he won by a good margin at the end, which was really good to see, Kent told

“He’s put in one poor jumpout and one good jumpout but he’s been improving all the time and raceday pressure is ultimately what tells the story.

“He’s got a good pedigree and winning like that on debut we could potentially be better things in store.”

Immortal Love is the 18th two year-old winner this season for champion sire Snitzel.
