2012 Eskimo Prince Stakes – Nobby Snip Scores Victory

2012 Eskimo Prince Stakes favourite Nobby Snip looked comfortable in securing a half length victory today in the Listed $100,000 event at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

It was the third win in a row for the promsing Gai Waterhouse trained gelding who was coming off a victory in the Fireball Quality earlier this month.

Ridden by Tommy Berry, Nobby Snip got in to a great position from the start as he settled behind fellow Waterhouse trained horse Niagara who came charging off the line.

Berry held Nobby Snip back tremendously and as they came in to the straight pushed down the rail to over take Niagara.

Towards the back end of the straight it looked as if Berry may have pushed him too hard too early but the three-year-old carrying 58.5kg showed enough heart to hold on.

Niagara ran courageously from start to finish and it made for a Waterhouse quinella as the colt finished half a length behind the favourite.

Speaking after the race, Waterhouse was just as pleased for her second place-getter as she was Nobby Snip.

“You’d want to be watching that Niagara, didn’t he run sensationally,” Waterhouse said.

“A big burly colt, he really attacked the line.

“But you can’t take anything away from the winner, he just skips through it.”

Nobby Snip now has now scored five victories from seven starts.

Peter Snowden trained Aerobatics took third place honours.
