Snitzel - Monte Rosa 2012
Dam: Monte Rosa
Wins: Winner of the Group 3 Aurie's Star Handicap down the Flemington Straight.
Service Fee: $13,200
There is no question, Australian racing revolves around precocious speed and commercial breeders wishing to tap into the market should look no further than Group 3-winning sprinter Sooboog, who represents outstanding value. He boasts a sublime pedigree, as a son of record-breaking sire sensation Snitzel, who is arguably the world’s leading source of two-year-old talent, and is a brother to Group 1 VRC Lightning Stakes winner Snitzerland. Sooboog’s $1.5 million price tag gives a clear indication that he has the looks to match his exemplary pedigree.
"Sooboog could rattle off sectional times that absolutely blew you away. If astounding speed is a key ingredient in making successful stallions I can assure breeders, that box is 1oo per cent ticked."
"He has the same highly-heritable qualities of great physique and raw speed that I Am Invincible took to stud."
"If I Am Invincible is the stallion benchmark on type, then I suggest breeders might like to take a look at Sooboog."
"… he is in great shape, obviously he is a beautiful horse, with a serious presence."
"… he was certainly right up there with some of the better two year olds I’ve trained."
"Wait until breeders see Sooboog, he’s as good a looking horse as you’ll come across."
