Check out the video footage of the Snitzel x Oriental Ruby colt parading at the Magic Millions yearling sale.
“…Snitzel is the stallion of the moment. Recent Group 1 winners Redzel and Russian Revolution plus Sizzling and Wandjina already at stud have really sparked interest in trying to get a son of Snitzel. I think this colt is well bought, he is athletic and may make a 2yo as he is out of a tough Street Cry mare who was best at 1400m to 1600m. I like those sprinting colts that are out of mares that throw a bit of depth into the colt. He is a good walking horse, he seems an even tempered horse so certainly committed to keeping him as a colt for as long as we can. We will put him on a program to help him be a 2yo as he is a neat walking, well balanced colt out of a tough mare and I think he is going to make it as a 2yo and train on as a spring 3yo.…” Mick Price
