I Am Excited Wins Listed Fireball Stakes

Monday, 12th March 2018

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO Australian-bred filly I Am Excited (Snitzel-Lady Beckworth, by General Nediym) unleashed a brilliant sprint midway down the straight to post a dominant win in the $125,000 Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) for 3YOs, defeating Acqume & Houtzen. This was the first stakes win for the talented I Am Excited who improved her record to 3 wins and 3 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Furious Stakes & Gr3 VRC Kennedy Plate) from 9 starts for $257,125 in earnings. I Am Excited is a half-sister to multiple stakes winning mare Flippant (Hinchinbrook) out of the well related Lady Beckworth (General Nediym-Nanshan). Lady Beckworth, in turn, is a half-sister to Regard (Zabeel-Nanshan), the dam of superstar mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock) and Gr1 Thousand Guineas winner Commanding Jewel (Commands).
