Champion Secure Top Lot From NZB May Yearling Sale

As you would have previously read, we have recently purchased two Snitzel fillies for syndication. With the ongoing success of Snitzel (2018 service fee announced at $AUS220,00) and the quick uptake in the Snitzel ex Miss Stellabelle and Snitzel ex Senator Beck fillies, Jason ventured across to New Zealand over the weekend to secure the Snitzel ex TIP THE WINK filly for $NZ120,000 off Greg Tomlinson's Nearco Stud (breeder of our very own Kuro and Southern Lad) through the Curraghmore Stud Draft at today’s New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka May Sale.

This cross has produced one of Snitzel's fastest sons in multiple G1 winning RUSSIAN REVOLUTION (The Oakley Plate and The Galaxy) who earned $1,284,225 and is now standing at Newgate Stud for a service fee of $55,000. The Snitzel over a Stravinsky mare cross has produced 4 named runners for 3 winners.

She is very much in the same strong mould as Snitzel himself and out a Listed winner and Group 1 placed winning Stravinsky mare TIP THE WINK. We are delighted to present this strong, fluid walking filly with a no nonsense attitude for syndication.

Leading Central Districts (NZ) trainer Mike Breslin who trained TIP THE WINK stated she was “not a big filly but impressive, very genuine with plenty of speed and she was physically a strong type. She was a little unlucky running 3rd 0.4L behind the winner in the Group 1 ARC Railway Handicap (1200m). She won 6 races for us including 2 Listed races. I think the Snitzel cross with her will produce a very speedy animal”

TIP THE WINK is from the great NZ HULA DANCE (HULA CHIEF, HULA DRUM, HAWAIIAN SONG) that produced multiple Group 1 winners. She has produced 3 named foals 2 of which have been presented at the races both of them winners. There is plenty of residual value in this family moving forward including recent Listed winner GLOBAL THINKING and her 2 siblings winning this season.

Jason stated "She is quite an athletic filly, not overly big, but Snitzel and her dam are not overly big, there is plenty of attitude to her, she's out of a Stravinsky mare so it's on the same cross as Group One winner Russian Revolution who is going to Stud this year.”

"She should go early, she's an early foal and we'll get her broken in now and see if we can get her back for the Karaka Million in January."
50% of this filly will be retained by Nearco Stud so be quick and register your interest with Neill Ross via neill@championthoroughbreds.com.au or call 0430168960
