Snitzel Sizzles with Sepoy on a Spell

Promising two-year-old Hot Snitzel showed they were ready to serve up some serious competition in the Brisbane Winter Carnival juvenile features with a sizzling win at the Gold Coast on the weekend.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel gelding Hot Snitzel was never threatened after hitting the front in the $100,000 Listed Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m), bolting away on the straight to score a commanding six and a half length victory over Double Impact in the Gold Coast feature.

To be nominated for all the major two-year-old races in Brisbane this season, Hot Snitzel looks set to dominate after their 12th place failure behind Sepoy in the Golden Slipper during the autumn.

With many of the autumn’s smart youngsters now in the paddock enjoying a spell, Ryan is pressing on with Hot Snitzel with the $500,000 Group 1 The TJ Smith over the mile at Eagle Farm on June 11 the main aim.

Ryan was wrapt with the Ken Russel win and confident that Hot Snitzel would be a force to be reckoned with over the coming weeks.

“I was hopeful this trip to Queensland would be the making of Hot Snitzel and if that race was anything to go by, it has been,” Ryan said.

“He was classes and classes above them today.”

Saturday’s victory was the first race success for Hot Snitzel since they won on debut over 1100m at Rosehill in December last year.

Purchased for $60,000 at the 2010 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, Hot Snitzel has now won over $174,000 in prize money for connections.

Jim Kennedy, a member of the Triple Crown Syndications who own the majority share of Hot Snitzel, has a path mapped out for the smart Sydney youngster.

“He’ll go into the Champagne Classic at Doomben in two weeks then the Sires and TJ,” he said.

The campaign is the same that last year’s TJ Smith winner Pressday followed, the then two-year-old from the stables of Chris Waller enjoying great success taking out the Champagne – Sires Produce – TJ Smith triple.

The Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) runs on May 21 followed by the Group 2 QTC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 4 and then the TJ Smith on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

Jockey Nash Rawiller admitted that Hot Snitzel was far from his top mount, but that he admired their ability.

“He’s not one of my favourite horses but he’s blessed with ability,” Rawiller said.

“He’s still got a few tricks up his sleeve.”

If Rawiller maintains his association with Hot Snitzel it could be back-to-back wins in the TJ Smith for the champion hoop who rode Pressday to victory last year.
