Flying Snitzel Starts Myer Classic 2013 Campaign

A possible shot at the 2013 Myer Classic this Melbourne Cup Carnival is on the cards for Gerald Ryan’s classy mare Flying Snitzel who resumes racing in Sydney this Saturday.

The four-year-old daughter of Snitzel is one of 15 nominated fillies and mares for the $125,000 Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) which runs as part of the Golden Rose Day action at Rosehill Gardens.

A set weights plus penalties event, the Sheraco Stakes 2013 will also be the kick off point for Guy Walter’s triple Group 1 winner Appearance.

Getting in with 59.5kg, Appearance is the rank mare in the entries and could prove hard to beat on the day.

One rival that will be out for an upset though is Flying Snitzel who has just one and a half kilos less than the top weight making for a tough first-up run for the Group 2 winner.

“It’s a hard race to start off in,” Ryan said according to AAP.

“But none of them are easy at this time of year. She’s got to start somewhere and this is a good kick-off.

“She’s very bright and well in herself.”

Flying Snitzel showed her class during the autumn when winning the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) second-up at Flemington.

It was an impressive effort too considering she was drawn wide in gate 10 of 11 and managed to put one and a quarter lengths on Bart Cummings’ Group 1 winner Norzita.

2013 Cox Plate-bound this spring, Norzita went on to run top three in three more elite levels after the Kewney including her Vinery Stud Stakes victory and Doncaster third.

Flying Snitzel meanwhile failed to really back up after her success.

Her next run was an eighth beaten four lengths by Appearance in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

She was then well beaten when seven in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick and was last seen running eighth in the Inglis 3YO Guineas at Scone in May.

She trialled at Rosehill on September 2 however and caught the eye with Hugh Bowman guiding her to a nice half-length win over 900m.

Ryan is now hoping she’ll improve on that when resuming in the Sheraco which will lead to a second-up run in the $220,000 Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) on Turnbull Stakes Day at Flemington on October 5.

If successful on Saturday it will be the second early spring feature win for Flying Snitzel’s connections Triple Crown Syndications in as many weeks following their success with Charlie Boy, also prepared by Ryan, in last weekend’s Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne.

There’s a chance too that Ryan will press onto the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) back at the track on November 2, Victoria Derby Day.
