Paul Snowden is Shooting To Win 2014 Caulfield Guineas

Trainer Paul Snowden may already have two Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) wins to his name, but the first in his newly-formed training partnership with father Peter would be that much sweeter.

Snowden was the Melbourne foreman for his father during his stint as head trainer of Sheikh Mohammed’s Australian racing operation, during which time they had a fantastic Guineas record.

They took out the $1 million race twice, with Helmet (2011) and Long John (2013), and also finished third to superstar All Too Hard in 2012 with Epaulette.

Keeping it in the family so to speak, this year they are responsible for Shooting To Win, who was transferred to them from trainer John O’Shea when he replaced Snowden as Sheikh Mohammed’s new head trainer in May.

“Hopefully we can do the right thing by the owners and get a result,” he told racing.com.

The colt’s connections were always hopeful of a Guineas start for Shooting To Win, and were pleased when he booked his start with a Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) victory on September 27, followed by a third placing in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m).

“You’ve got to earn your stripes for a race like this, you just don’t throw them in and hope for the best, but he’s always had a great deal of ability,” Snowden said.

“Hopefully he just shows what he can do on Saturday.”

Shooting To Win is the $6 second-favourite in the competitive Caulfield Guineas betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, which is led by Rich Enuff at $2.20.

The 2014 Caulfield Guineas will be the Northern Meteor colt’s first start in Melbourne, but Snowden (who lived in Melbourne for more than five years) says he is well-practiced working left-handed and shouldn’t have trouble with the opposite way of going on the track.

“After the Stan Fox we started working him the Melbourne way up in Sydney and he’s had two gallops and he came down here over the weekend,” he said.

“Hasn’t faltered in his action, he’s been on his right leg ever since he’s been going the reverse way and we’re tickled pink with him.”
