Snitzerland Prepares for 2013 The Galaxy

Gerald Ryan’s talented filly Snitzerland is back in work nearing her new season return with her major autumn target to be The Galaxy 2013 in late April.


Talented filly Snitzerland will target the 2013 The Galaxy this autumn in Sydney

The now three-year-old daughter of Snitzel has already amassed over $1.3 million in prize money in her short 11 start career that has been headlined by six wins and two minor placings.

Her Group wins so far include the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes last march, the Group 3 San Domenico in Sydney in August, the Group 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington in and the Group 3 Champagne Stakes at the Valley in September.

She is perhaps best known to many race fans however not for a race she has won but for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper where Snitzerland ran a very brave second behind Gai Waterhouse’s glamour colt Pierro in as a juvenile last autumn.

It was a spring of mixed results for the filly last campaign however.

She enjoyed four wins on the trot from August to October before stepping up to Group 1 company for the first time since the Slipper with a credible albeit disappointing fifth when beaten just under two lengths by Nechita in the Coolmore Stud Stakes during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

At her most recent run Snitzerland failed to fire when sixth behind the Peter Snowden-trained Mental in the Group 1 Patianck Farm Classic (1200m) as a 51.5kg light-weight in the open sprint on November 10.

Ryan is confident that she will be able to bounce back this year and hopefully break her Group 1 maiden status either this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival or during her possible Queensland stint for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival riches midway through the year.

“Snitzerland is back in work and looks terrific,” Ryan said.

The Slipper runner-up is due to resume racing on March 16 when she tackles the $175,000 Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Randwick Guineas Day.

“She will run in the Challenge Stakes and then the Galaxy,” Ryan said.

The $350,000 Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) is set to run at Royal Randwick on April 20.

“We’ll look at options after that but Queensland is a possibility,” Ryan added.

Ryan also said while the $1 million prize money for the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) in Sydney on April 13 was appealing, the rivals Snitzerland would face there ruled it out as a target.

Black Caviar and Hay List are running in the T.J. Smith Stakes and I don’t want Snitzerland to have to run against them at 1200m or 1400m (later on),” he said.
