Gooree Stud's former Widden Stud-based Gr1-winning sprinter Snowland (Snippets-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) will stand the upcoming breeding season at the Baxter family's Macquarie Stud at Wellington in NSW for $16,500. On the track Snowland (a $90,000 yearling at the 2001 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) recorded 9 wins (including the Gr1 AJC Galaxy at his final start, as well as the G2 Todman Slipper Trial, G2 Up And Coming Stakes, Gr3 Roman Consul Stakes, Gr3 Kindergarten Stakes, Listed Canonbury Stakes & Listed Gosford Stakes) & 3 placings (Gr2 Challenge Stakes, Gr3 Liverpool City Cup & Listed AJC Breeders Plate) from 17 starts for $1,140,660 earnings. Snowland is a half-brother to this season's exciting 2YO filly Portillo & the sire of this season's Gr2-winning 3YO filly Absolut Glam.
