Snowdens’ Shooting To Win 2015 Hobartville Stakes

Autumn plans for Shooting To Win remain up in the air following a barrier trial at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Tuesday morning.

The three-year-olds trainers are tossing up a return to racing for the colt in either the Listed Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 7 or the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) a fortnight later on February 21.

Shooting To Win was given an easy time in his barrier trial on Tuesday with champion hoop Kerrin McEvoy, settling back in the field and not being asked for much of an effort when finishing last behind Farolitos in the star-studded 1050 metre heat.

Peter & Paul Snowden are now strongly considering bypassing the 2015 Eskimo Prince Stakes and giving the colt a further two barrier trials before resuming in the 2015 Hobartville Stakes. The Snowden’s are hesitant about the weight allocation in the former race.

“He is a big gross colt and showed last preparation that he thrives on racing, it really brings him on,” co-trainer Paul Snowden told TVN.

“The Eskimo Prince is there as an option but he would potentially get a lot of weight.

“The option is there to trial him another two more times and then go in to the Hobartville Stakes first-up.”

Shooting To Win made easy work of his first full-fledged carnival during the spring, finishing in the first three in all but one of his five starts.

The colt finished second last in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) first up on August 23 but turned it around to place in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) and Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) the following month.

He then won back-to-back in both the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) and Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) – his biggest accomplishment.

While McEvoy partnered Shooting To Win in Tuesday morning’s barrier trial, Paul Snowden was quick to note it was no indication he’d secured the ride on the star colt during the autumn.

“No decision has been made yet on a rider, we will just see what happens,” he said.
