At Doomben in Brisbane, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion and current leading Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a new stakes-winner when speedy 3YO colt Snitzkraft (Snitzel-Power O'Raylee, by O'Reilly) scored by 0.2-lengths over older rivals for trainers Kelso Wood and Patricia Gesler in the $100,000 Listed Magic Millions Falvelon Quality (1050m). Hanging on for Wood, who has overcome a tough time with illness, Snitzkraft became the fifth individual stakes-winner consigned in Arrowfield's 2016 Magic Millions draft. He defeated 9YO gelding Constabulary (Flying Spur-Irish Truce, by Brief Truce) & 5YO gelding Havvasay (Rothesay-Showhama, by Show A Heart). Passed in for $200,000, Snitskraft now has 4 wins & 2 placings (including the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes on debut and Listed Dalrello Stakes) from 8 starts for $227,300 earnings. His victory provided a wildcard entry for next week's $1 million Magic Millions Snippets.
