Champollion Claims 2013 The Schweppervescence Win – Results

Champollion has proved too good for the remainder of the 2013 The Schweppervescence field, winning the race at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse today.

The Exceed And Excel colt was paying odds of $16 to win the 2013 The Schweppervescence at after finishing 11th of 16 runners in the Group 2 Henry Bucks Sires Produce Stakes at Flemington last start.

However, Champollion’s true ability prevailed upon winning today’s Group 3 The Schweppervescence by a neck ahead of Ideal Guide, who finished second, and Rightoncue, who survived missing the start to place third.

This was Champollion’s first race win from four starts, with the Exceed And Excel colt’s prize money now calculating close to $85,000.

Trainer Peter Snowden was over the moon with the colt’s classy win in the 2013 The Schweppervescence.

“He’s a horse that’s always shown us ability,” Snowden said.

“He showed today what he’s been showing us for quite a while.

“He’ll go on and win bigger races.

“This fella was precocious early.

“He’s a nice horse and I think up to a mile would be perfect for him.”

Henry Plumptre, who manages Darley in Australia, was equally thrilled with Champollion’s win.

“It’s nice to see him come up here on a big day and win a nice race,” he said.

Christian Reith steered Champollion to victory in the 2013 The Schweppervescence.

“I was under pressure early and he wasn’t really handling the track,” admitted Reith.

“He’s an exciting horse. But on the top of the ground he’s much better.”
