Snitzerland Takes out 2012 Danehill Stakes

It wasn’t easy but classy filly Snitzerland proved why she is rated as one of the best three-year-olds in the country when winning the Group 2 2012 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington today.


Snitzerland (inside) proved her class to win the 2012 Danehill Stakes in a close finish with Stralia

The Gerald Ryan-trained sprinter was ridden with cover to avoid the strong headwind on the Flemington straight and Damien Oliver left it until well past halfway to peel her to the clear passage down the inside.

From there she went neck-and-neck with promising colt Stralia but proved a bit too strong in the final 100 metres to win by half a length ahead of the Mark Riley-trained youngster.

It was a change in tactics for the daughter of Snitzel who led from start to finish last start in the San Domenico Stakes and trainer Gerald Ryan said he was satisfied with the performance.

“We went out there with the idea that we would ride her with cover if we could ride her with cover because of the wind,” Ryan said.

“I was happy. The result was there, she’s won. A couple of big strong colts in it.

“She’s got the job done and that’s what she came here to do.”

Damien Oliver, who was riding her for the first time, was always confident the Golden Slipper runner-up would produce a winning result.

“I thought she was obviously the best horse in the race and is she was not too far away I knew she could pick them up,” Oliver said.

The next test for Snitzerland will come in the Group 3 Champagne Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on September 22 with her major goal the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) in November.

There is plenty of exciting action still to go this weekend so remember to visit to access top prices.
