Sire: Headwater

Colour: Bay

Dam: Brilliant Snitzel

Sex: Colt

Age: 2

Foaled: Sep 06, 2018

Country: Australia


This colt was recently purchased from the Inglis Classic Sale. Sired by Headwater, his oldest progeny are now 2YO’s and the limited number of runners that have hit the track are showing promise. Of the 12 runners to race, he has had three individual winners including a Melbourne Metro winner, and three place getters. These progeny have won over 1000m to 1100m.

Headwater was bred for pure speed being by a Group 1 Newmarket winner in Exceed & Excel, out of a Group 1 Oakleigh Plate winner River Dove.

Headwater himself was an early 2yo – He had early 2yo speed, winning on debut in December of his juvenile year before going on to win the Group 2 Silver Slipper as a 2yo. As a 3yo he trained on, he was then one of only a few to go on as a 3yo and defeat older horses at Stakes level including subsequent Group 1 winner The Quarterback when victorious in the Kensington Stakes, a sprint down the Flemington straight.

Out of the dam Brilliant Snitzel, as the name indicates, she is a daughter of super sire Snitzel. When Mick looks at this colt he sees a lot of Snitzel in him. She was a 2yo winner, only a young dam she has one foal to race and he is a winner.

The colt was purchased for $110,000. Ownership opportunities in the colt includes purchase price, breaking in expenses, transport from the sales, vetting (including scope, x-ray inspections and clinical exam), twelve month mortality insurance, emergency surgery cover, agistment, Inglis Race Series, photographs/video of the horse and GST.
