Snitty Kitty Oakleigh Plate Bound
Victorian trainer Henry Dwyer says talented sprinting mare Snitty Kitty (Snitzel-Lassiter's Cat, by Tale of the Cat) is on track for next month's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield, reports racing.com. The lightly raced 4YO was unbeaten in the spring winning her only two starts, including the Gr2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) in Melbourne. Snitty Kitty showed she was ready to return to the races when finishing second to the highly touted Ardrossan in an 800m jump-out at Caulfield on Tuesday. "All signs are very positive. Every preparation we've had with her she's improved a little bit," Dwyer said. "She trialled terrific this morning. She was just out for a soft one...just cruised up the hill on her, had plenty in the tank. They ran good time." Dwyer added: "We're probably going to the WJ Adams Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday week, which is a good kick-off for her, and the obvious target is the Oakleigh Plate."
