Snitzerland Saved for 2013 Robert Sangster Stakes

Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan is happy with the decision not to run his top filly Snitzerland up against the queen Black Caviar in Saturday’s TJ Smith Stakes, instead saving the youngster for the Robert Sangster Stakes 2013 in Adelaide at the end of the month.

Runner-up to super colt Pierro in last year’s Golden Slipper, the now three-year-old daughter of Snitzel has won seven of her 13 career starts but is yet to break through at elite level, something Ryan is hoping will change this season.

She has taken out five Group races most recently winning the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) first-up at Warwick Farm on March 16 before her distant second to Bel Sprinter, who does take on Black Caviar in the $1 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick this weekend, in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m).

Snitzerland is owned by one of the same connections as Black Caviar with Neil Werrett owning a share in both sprinters, but Ryan said that was not the reason she wasn’t accepted for in the TJ Smith Stakes.

“It was my call not to run her in the TJ Smith,” Ryan said.

“She has had two gut busters and it didn’t matter if Black Caviar was there or not.”

She will now enjoy another two weeks’ rest before being sent to South Australia where Snitzerland will target another race won last autumn by the flawless Black Caviar, the $400,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on April 27.

“She needs to be right for the Sangster Stakes in Adelaide,” Ryan added.

If competitive in the Robert Sangster Stakes, also known as the Sportingbet Classic, then Ryan will keep Snitzerland in South Australia for the state’s premier race, the $500,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) on May 11.
