Big Winter for Sizzling to Include TJ Smith 2012

Talented two-year-old Sizzling looks set for a big Brisbane Winter Carnival after impressing with a sensational first-up win in the 2012 Ken Russell Memorial Classic at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Sizzling looks set for a big Brisbane Carnival after a convincing win at the Gold Coast on Saturday

Racing for the first time since his fourth-place effort in January’s Magic Millions, the Kelso Wood-trained colt got out of the blocks in typically sluggish fashion but showed a sensational turn of foot at the back on of the race to reel in the leaders and gallop away for a 4 ½ length victory.

If he can continue that sort of form throughout the winter, the son of Snitzel will be tough to beat in a campaign that will end with a tilt at the Group 1 $500,000 2012 TJ Smith at Eagle Farm on June 9.

Speaking after Saturday’s race, experienced jockey Chris Munce was full of praise for the highly promising up-and-comer.

“He’s all class but he’s very laid back and not a bounce and run type,” Munce said.

“It was a very good win and he was very strong at the finish.”

Sizzling is in for a busy winter schedule, with his next task the Group 2 Champagne Classic at Doomben on Saturday week before contesting the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes on June 2.

It will all culminate with the TJ Smith for the colt who boasts a resume of two wins and two placings from five career starts.

He tops the list of nominations for the winter’s feature two-year-old event that also includes impressive debut winner Better Than Ready, Guy Walter-trained Toydini and Kindergarten Stakes winner Dances On Stars.

Markets are now open for many of the Brisbane winter feature races, so head to to back a winner.
