QUACKQUACK / SNITZEL 2016
Quackquack is by Starcraft and Snitzel has had just one runner to-date out of a Starcraft mare – the 3yo Muraaqeb. This colt was Stakes-placed on his only 2YO start and has since won at Moonee Valley before a good 2nd on his most recent start in the Listed Hilton Stakes at Flemington over 1400m for the Hayes and Dabernig stable.
Starcraft’s daughters have had 58 runners to-date and four (6.9%) are already Stakes winners.
Also of note is that Snitzel has nicked very well with Quackquack’s broodmare sire Woodman, producing over 8% Stakes winners to runners including the Group 1 Galaxy winner SWEET IDEA who is out of a Timber Country (Woodman) mare.
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION, another of Snitzel’s Galaxy winners, is bred on a similar cross to this colt as Russian Revolution is out of a Stravinsky (Nureyev) mare. In all, Snitzel has had 21 runners out of granddaughters of Nureyev for a winner to runners’ ratio of 76.2%. Five of those (over 23%) are Stakes performers. This colt’s broodmare sire Starcraft, is of course a grandson of Nureyev.
