We are extremely excited to offer this colt by the record-breaking Champion Sire Snitzel. After having the season record for two-year-old winners and prizemoney and finishing in the number one spot on the General, Two- and Three-year-old Sires premiership in 2017/18 Snitzel is already on track this season to break his own records. By the king of Australian sires in Redoute's Choice, Snitzel runs at an exceptional 10.8% stakeswinners/runners. An exceptional sire of juveniles, Snitzel is also an extremely versatile sire with nine of his thirteen Group One winners winning their Group Ones at three, four, five and six. A sire of sires, including our very own Wandjina, Snitzel continues to deliver top performers season after season and this is an exciting opportunity to get involved in a cracking colt by the Champion Sire.

This colt is out the dual winner Bourgogne, a half-sister to the talented Group One winning and Group Two producing mare Bulla Borghese. A black-type producing mare, Bourgogne is the dam of four winners including two stakes horses in Lizard Island, runner up in the Group One Caulfield Guineas and two-year-old stakes placed mare Fairy Star. This colt's granddam is the very well related Fionnay who herself is the dam of VRC Oaks winner Bulla Borghese and listed winner Cresta Run. Bulla Burghese was not only an exceptional racehorse but is also the dam of two-year-old Group Two winning and Group One placed mare Bound For Earth and two-year-old Group Two winner Calliope. By Champion Sire Snitzel and from a line of extremely talented racehorses, this half-brother to two stakes horses has everything going for him.
