2013 Manikato Stakes Riches Spring Focus for Snitzerland

Gerald Ryan’s electric sprinter Snitzerland will join a likely strong contingent of sprinters in chasing the extra prizemoney now on offer in the Group 1 2013 Manikato Stakes (1200m).

Taking place at Moonee Valley on Friday October 25, the feature sprint now offers $1 million in stakes, having previously been a $750,000 race.

The rising four-year-old was sent to the spelling paddock after her shock failure in the Robert Sangster Stakes in late April and Ryan said she won’t return to work for another month.

The Rosehill trainer told Sky Sports Radio the daughter of Snitzel has put on 50 kilograms during her time out so far.

Despite possessing obvious talent and boasting some big performances, Snitzerland is still yet to taste Group 1 success. From five attempts in the top grade she has secured two minor placings.

The daughter of Snitzel was second to Pierro in the 2012 Golden Slipper and was runner-up to Bel Sprinter in The Galaxy in March.

From 14 starts she has scored seven wins and three minor placings for more than $1.5 million in prizemoney.

Run on Cox Plate eve, Racing Victoria is expecting a star-studded field to contest the Manikato with the increased prizemoney now available.

“The change of date 12 months ago and today’s prizemoney boost mean the Manikato Stakes has now become a legitimate target for the world’s best sprinters, with Hong Kong star Lucky Nine among those targeting this year’s race,” Racing Victoria Executive General Manager Greg Carpenter said.

“The fact we now have the Manikato Stakes and the $1 million Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington 15 days later means we have an attractive offering for international sprinters.”
