Snitzel x Nocturnelle - key Points


  • Australia's Champion Sire of 2017, 2018 & 2019, 2020, Snitzel continues to make a spectacular impact on Australian racing & breeding, setting new benchmarks of performance as a world-class sire and a big-race stallion par excellence.
    In a highly competitive race for the General Sires' Premiership, Snitzel has passed the $15 million mark to establish a clear lead on prizemoney. More importantly, he dominates  on quality performance with 17 individual winners of 23 Group & Listed Races. They include his 14th Group 1 winner I Am Excited, outstanding 2YO Away Game, Group-winning 3YOs Exhilarates & Splintex, Champion Sprinter Redzel in his final season, and classy mares Irithea & Sylvia's Mother.

  • Three General & two 2YO Sire Premierships, season records for prizemoney, stakeswinners & 2YO winners,  six category Champions, 4 Inglis Easter Sale-toppers & 28 million-dollar yearlings are top-of-the-mountain achievements already on Snitzel's record. But the evidence indicates that he has not only found the next mountain to climb - he's well on the way to conquering it.
