We are very excited to be offering this colt by the record-breaking Champion Sire Snitzel. After having the season record for two-year-old winners and prize money 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 the late 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 of the Group 2 winning Anabaa mare Dances On Waves. Dances On Waves was a talented and sound race mare who won during every single one of her campaigns and really peaked as a five-year-old winning the Group 2 AJC Villiers Stakes. She is the dam of two winners including the two-year-old winner Pipeline. Very well related, this mare is a half-sister to the dam of Champion Stayer Preferment. The son of the legendary Zabeel, now standing at stud in New Zealand, was a four-time Group 1 winner and earner of just short of $3.5 million prize money during his stellar career. Hailing from such a phenomenal family of sound gallopers, this athletic colt is a very exciting racing prospect for Tulloch Lodge.
