Winners continue to flow for SMART MISSILE as filly fires into Golden Rose contention

SMART MISSILE has proven a prolific source of winners, with the Champion First-Season sire scoring 8 winners in the last 7 days to take his tally to 104 winners for the season, 13 more than any other third-season sire.

Included in his recent flurry of winners is MASCULINO, who secured back-to-back city wins at Caulfield on Saturday when carrying 60kgs to victory in the Open 3YO Handicap worth $120,000.

And he may yet have a filly of the highest quality among his progeny, after SMART MELODY won by over five lengths at Canterbury last week, to earn quotes among the top fancied runners for the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes on September 22.

The unbeaten filly scored convincingly at the metropolitan track, after winning by an equally dominant margin at Newcastle on debut on June 9.

Smart Missile has been such a prolific source of winners, that he has had more horses greet the judge in front than Champion Sire Snitzel at the same time in their careers!

Gold Symphony chasing back-to-back Civic Stakes triumphs

A SPECTACULAR run in this very race 12 months ago saw Gold Symphony come away victorious in the Listed Civic Stakes after he produced a surging run on the outside to beat The Monstar at Rosehill Gardens.

And the dual Group 3 winner is back for more after a running-on performance in the Listed June Stakes over an inadequate trip of 1100m a fortnight ago.

The leading son of Reward For Effort steps up to 1350m for Saturday’s assignment, and is bidding to become Triple Crown’s sixth individual Stakes winner for the season.

Drawn in barrier 17 does not provide Gold Symphony with any favours, and he’ll have to circumnavigate the field under Adam Hyeronimus in the feature race on the card.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden has been encouraged by his work, but acknowledges the task he faces from the wide draw.

“I’m really happy with the horse,” said Snowden. “He’s come back in great order and his first up run was very encouraging.

“The draw is a shocker and he’ll have his work cut out from there, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he runs a really tidy race as he’s going really well.

Redzel returns to work in defence of Everest crown

LAST YEAR’S Everest winner REDZEL has returned to work at Snowden Racing ahead of a spring preparation focused on defending his title in the world’s richest race on turf.

The Triple Crown Syndications star five-year-old took home the lion’s share of the $10 Million prize pool in the inaugural running of the event which captured the attention of the globe.

This year the race is worth a staggering $13 Million and Triple Crown will be joining forces with Mr Zhang’s Yulong Investments to race the leading son of Champion Sire Snitzel in the coveted race at Royal Randwick on October 13, 2018.

During a stellar 2017, Redzel went unbeaten in six runs from April, collecting the Group 1 pair of the Doomben 10,000 and Darley Classic, in addition to The Everest, to be widely acknowledged as the most feared sprinter on the planet.

After spending a rejuvenating six weeks in the spelling paddock, Redzel is back into his work at Snowden Racing’s Randwick stable, with co-trainer Peter Snowden plotting a repeat success in the showpiece event.

“He looks amazing,” said Snowden. “He’s really enjoyed his break and has had an easy week back in the stable just trotting and cantering and is very fresh in himself.

“He’s come back in great condition and we’ll be stepping up his work shortly.

“It’s great to have the slot in the race locked in early this year and that gives us time to prepare him with the sole focus of retaining that title.

“It was a fantastic moment for not just myself but my family as well when winning the race last year, the day had a really special feel about it and we can’t wait to be involved once more.”

“We’ve had her in the stable for several weeks now and she’s doing everything right, showing us to be quite a precocious type. The Rubick’s have all had a great nature about them and are nice and strong.

“She’s shown us something in these early stages and hopefully she will continue to impress.”

The genetics of this filly are exceptional, with this breeding cross already proven to be a huge success at the very highest level, with Champions ZOUSTAR, CHAUTAUQUA & DELAGO DELUXE bred on this exact same cross, while Group 1 winners ENGLISH and COSMIC ENDEAVOUR are also bred on the ENCOSTA DE LAGO/DANEHILL cross.

Horses out of FASTNET ROCK mares have had sensational success recently, with SANTA ANA LANE now a three-time Group 1 winner after winning the Stradbroke Handicap as well as Group winners TIVACI and OMEI SWORD.

Moss Trip seeks path to Group 1 glory

TRIPLE CROWN’S flying filly Moss Trip will look to end her campaign on a high as she bids for victory in the final Group 1 of the season, the Tatts Tiara at Doomben.

A winner of the Group 3 James Carr Stakes and $500,000 Inglis Guineas at Scone already this preparation, the three-year-old filly opened her Queensland venture with a close-up third in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes at Doomben and is a $10 chance to win a maiden Group 1 on Saturday.

Her previous taste of Group 1 level resulted in a fifth place finish in the Surround Stakes when beaten less than a length and a half by three-time Group 1 winner Shoals, with her owners have a fresh appetite for another crack at Group 1 success.

Purchased for $32,000 as a yearling, Moss Trip has now earned over $500,000 in prizemoney and landed Triple Crown’s 27th Group-race win since 2010 with victory in the James Carr in April.

The Snowden Racing team took this race 12 months ago through Tycoon Tara and co-trainer Peter Snowden has been thrilled with Moss Trip’s progress this preparation as he bids to go back-to-back in the 1350m showpiece.

“She looks particularly well up there,” said Snowden. “I went up to see her on Tuesday and she looked fantastic, she really has settled in well here.

“She worked very strongly that morning in her last piece of fast work before Saturday. She was very sharp.

“We need a bit of luck from the draw but she measured up very well in the Dane Ripper last time out and very much deserves to take her chance here.”

Settled Lad showing improvement ahead of return

THE decision to geld a promising youngster is never taken lightly but trainer Peter Snowden is convinced it was the right move with Invincible Lad.

He had a tendency to race too hard and, despite being stakes placed as a colt, wasn’t going to realise his potential.

So with that now rectified Snowden is expecting the new and improved Invincible Lad to be a force when he returns in the Spring On Sale Plate (1100m) at Canterbury on Wednesday.

“He has ability but he was just doing things back to front last time in,” he said.

“We thought he was a Diamond horse but he didn’t measure up, he was going too hard in front and stopping late.

“Hopefully being a gelding he can race a bit kinder and find the line better. We’ll try to get longevity out of him and I think it will pay dividends in the long run.”

A lot of work has gone into teaching Invincible Lad, who was $3.60 with TAB on Tuesday, to settle in his races and that has been on show in his two recent trials.

While beaten 4.8 lengths in his most recent, over 1045m on a heavy track, Snowden said it was proof the hard work is paying off.

“He was okay the first time and much better the second time even though there was a tearaway leader,” Snowden said.

“He made good ground late and I thought he handled the ground.

“It’s a perfect draw to get back in behind them and he should be hitting the line well.”

Snowden admits he’s been very disappointed with the preparation of stablemate Cosimo ($26) and can only go into the race hopeful.

Interestingly, Cosimo seems to suffer the same issue Invincible Lad has now been cured of.

“I thought a bit of this horse but he went way too hard the other day at Newcastle. He’s running out of chances,” he said.

The Canterbury track condition will determine whether Jen Rules makes her debut in the Tab.com.au Plate (1100m).

The Redoute’s Choice filly, early TAB favourite at $3.60, was an impressive trial winner at Randwick on June 12 but Snowden isn’t sold on her on a very heavy surface.

“I don’t think she was all that happy the other day on the real heavy ground so I’m hoping we don’t get too wet a track,” he said

“Once she got out to the wider part of the track where she got a bit of footing she accelerated well but I definitely think she’s better on top of the ground.”

Meanwhile, Snowden said Everest champion Redzel has been back in the stable for a week as he builds towards his defence of Australia’s richest race.

The rising six-year-old had a month off after running fourth in the Doomben 10,000 and Snowden said he’s looking in great condition.

It’s likely there’ll be a change in program for Redzel in the lead up to The Everest with The Shorts (1100m), the race he won last year to clinch an Everest berth, his first-up run on September 15 then the Premiere Stakes (1200m) two weeks later.

The $13 million The Everest is run on October 13.

“Two weeks apart off a long break will be fine for him,” Snowden said.

Triple Crown have raced some of the top progeny of Smart Missile, with Stakes placed juvenile Jericho, as well as the Stakes placed Island Missile racing in the red silks.

Moss Trip seeks another ripping run

MOSS TRIP is a horse in flying form after heading north to Brisbane to contest the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes with wins in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes and Listed Inglis Guineas already in the trophy cabinet.

A good showing here will pave the way for a tilt at the Group 1 Tatts Tiara later this month, but Saturday’s Group 2 assignment will be her toughest task in her career to date.

She faces 15 rivals but will have to negotiate a route from Barrier 15 with Brenton Avdulla on board over the 1350m trip.

Her usual band of owners will be making the trip to Queensland, with the $32,000 yearling putting a useful record together with five wins from ten starts, and victory on Saturday will take her through the $500,000 mark in prizemoney.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden says she’s arrived in Brisbane well, and is in good form ahead of the race.

“She’s come through her last run extremely well and worked very strongly before making the trip to Brisbane,” said Snowden. “She’s going up there in great order.”

Moss Trip won a trial at Randwick heading into this, and Snowden could look to keep her in Brisbane for the Group 1 Tatts Tiara on June 23.

“Her trial was excellent and she continues to handle everything extremely well. If she measures up in the Dane Ripper we will think about going to the Tatts Tiara.”
