Flying filly Snitzerland has been one of the stars this spring to date with four consecutive victories and she’ll be out to increase that streak to five when she contests the Group 1 2012 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday.
From everything she has shown so far she deservedly starts as one of the favourites but could it be one run too many for the Gerald Ryan-trained youngster?
Jockey Corey Brown doesn’t think so.
“She’s going to be the number one horse in the field that I can see,” Brown said.
“She’s just one of those horses that is tough as nails.”
Ryan has even hinted she could be destined for the 2012 Patinack Farm Classic against the older horses if she can again impress this weekend.
