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.
Entering his second season at stud, Sooboog is well placed to capitalise on the start he has been given after covering 156 mares in the 2017 season. From this he covered the dam of the Runner up in the Golden Slipper, Blue Diamond and Sires Produce all at Group 1 level in Oohood.
Breeders to Sooboog in 2018 will be selling this year’s matings as the 2017 crop are hitting those early 2yo races. A breeder to Sooboog in his second season at stud is possibly positioning for a turbo charged result if his high profile team of backers deliver the early results on the track that they are well renown for.
As the first season sires title race in 2018 has again shown, sometimes the most explosive outcomes for breeders arrive via the less obvious pathways.
"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."
