Snitzerland Confirmed for 2013 The Galaxy

Gerald Ryan’s classy filly Snitzerland will be out to finally break her Group 1 duck this Saturday with the confirmation she will back up from an impressive Challenge Stakes win in The Galaxy 2013 on Rosehill Guineas Day.

The daughter of Snitzel, runner-up to superstar colt Pierro as a juvenile in the Golden Slipper 12 months ago, posted her seventh career win first-up on March 16 at Warwick Farm when putting an easy three lengths on Decision Time to take out the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m).

Adding to the merit of that win was the inclusion of champion galloper Hay List in the field who ran a credible fourth in their first run in nearly a year.

Snitzerland has run in three previous elite level races, most recently when sixth to Mental in the Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington during the spring, but is yet to score victory.

Ryan is hoping, and somewhat confident, that can happen this weekend when she runs in the $350,000 Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens against possible rivals including Hay List and Adebisi.

The only thing Ryan is concerned about is how closely weighted Snitzerland is to likely top-weight Hay List in The Galaxy weights when they are released on Tuesday.

“There was 4-1/2 kilos between them in the Challenge at weight-for-age,” Ryan said.

“In a handicap she should be getting at least 7-1/2 kilos from him and because, she’s a filly, another two kilos.

“But Racing New South Wales can’t tell me what rating she has got so I don’t know.

“But she’s a three-year-old filly who hasn’t won a Group One race yet.”

Hay List meanwhile will bypass the race should they be too heavily weighted, trainer John McNair not wanting to over strain the seven-year-old triple Group 1 winner just two runs back.

“If he gets more than 59.5 kilos he won’t be running,” McNair said.

“That is a kilo more than weight-for-age, and I think it is reasonable for him.

“We got beaten by Snitzerland (in the Challenge Stakes) the other day by 3½ lengths, and I don’t think she will be getting a kilo more than weight-for-age. That would make it very hard for (Hay List) to win.

“They don’t weight these horses against each other, they just use ratings.”
