Snitzerland to Skip 2012 Golden Rose

Exciting Gerald Ryan-trained filly Snitzerland will not start in the Golden Rose and instead be targeted towards the Group 1 2012 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemingtonin November.


Snitzerland will be targeted at the Coolmore Stud Stakes in November

The Golden Slipper runner-up has returned well from a spell following an excellent autumn campaign and will have five races throughout the spring.

A daughter of Snitzel, the rising three-year-old will resume racing on August 18 in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes before heading to Melbourne for four sprints.

“She’ll have five runs all three weeks apart, starting off in the San Domenico at Rosehill,” Ryan said.

“She’ll target a series of sprints that will end on November 5 with the Coolmore at Flemington.”

Other races included in the finely tuned plan for Snitzerland are the Danehill Stakes, Champagne Stakes and the new Blue Sapphire at Caulfield.

Ryan said there was nothing to suggest the promising youngster wouldn’t be able to continue the good form shown as a juvenile.

“All signs are good, she appears to have come back well at this stage but you can never really tell until you race them.”

The plan will see Snitzerland avoid a rematch with champion colt Pierro who she came within half a length of beating in prestigious Golden Slipper earlier this year.

The $3 million event was the talented filly’s last race of the autumn after an outstanding campaign that saw her also win the Group 3 Throughbred Breeders Stakes at Flemington.

From five career starts, the Rosehill-based horse has won twice and placed on another two occasions, collecting more than $800,000 in prize money.

The plan is not yet known for fellow Golden Slipper starter Amorino but Cavalry Rose will be targeted at the Princess Series for three-year-old fillies in Sydney.
