Snowden, Strasbourg Win the 2019 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes

Peter and Paul Snowden teamed with Tommy Berry on Saturday to win the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) with talented I Am Invincible colt Strasbourg.

The two-year-old was installed as a $6.50 chance at Eagle Farm but ran every bit like a Group 1 chance as the stable now eyes the $600,000  J.J. Atkins Plate (1600m) on Stradbroke Handicap Day in two weeks’ time.

Strasbourg isn’t nominated for the race, but the Snowden team can opt for a late $3,600 buy-in on May 29. Peter Snowden commented on the horses next step in the Carnival after the race as well as Strasbourg’s calm demeanour.

“We’ll see how he pulls up. It was never my intention to go there, but having watched his last couple starts he’s not showing any gate speed at all he really wants to relax now and finding the line better and better” Snowden said.

“He’s always a horse that’s shown promise so it’s good to see him win one.”

Berry launched early down the straight from the widest part of the track to challenge Accession and Garibaldi, both of which were one-two along the rails. It was heart in mouth stuff as Strasbourg hit the line to win by half a length, a nervous watch for the animated Snowden.

“I was saying some bad language come the corner where he was, I thought gee you’re going early mate but he had the horse underneath him and he did a great job, and as it turned out it was a winning move” Snowden went on to say.

Accession, who went on to finish second, remains a $6.00 chance with Ladbrokes in the J.J. Atkins market.
