Incoming Scenic Lodge sire Snippetson is firing in the juvenile division and Melbourne filly My Poppette is among 7 of his two year-olds winners this season.
Trained by Colin and Cindy Alderson, she won on debut at Pakenham and then ran a bottler when runner-up to top colt Black Vanquish at Flemington last Saturday.
My Poppette (2f Snippetson – Brompton’s Choice by Runyon) was nominated to back up in the $150,000 VOBIS Gold Ingot at Caulfield this weekend but she will be reserved for the LR Anzac Day Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday week.
“We’ve had a few by Snippetson – they’re all decent-sized, solid horses and can handle work,” Cindy Alderson said. “They do have a bit of fire in the belly and we use a barrier-blanket with My Poppette.
“They can sprint and they’re sound. I guess he got swamped with all the new stallions in the Hunter Valley and he will be suited to Western Australia.”
The Aldersons also raced Snippetson gelding That’s The One who won the G3 C S Hayes Stakes at Flemington in 2012 before finishing fourth in the G1 Australian Guineas.
Snippetson is a Top 5 stallion on the Australia 2YO winners premiership this season behind Exceed and Excel, Snitzel, Not a Single Doubt and I Am Invincible. He got off to a quick start with October winners Pierrette (Randwick) and Hot Snippety (Doomben).
Scenic Lodge will stand Blackfriars, Universal Ruler, Snippetson and Dash For Cash this season and will announce service fees next week.
