Boulder City Overview
First season sire Boulder City literally offers a rock solid option to broodmare owners this season. On pedigree alone he is almost peerless. By Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (and the first son of Snitzel to stand in Victoria), the imposing Boulder City is also the half-brother to triple Gr1 Cox Plate winning wondermare Winx (from Vegas Showgirl).
Snitzel is assured of making a massive impact as a sire of sires with the likes of Shamus Award, Sizzling, Russian Revolution, Spill The Beans and Wandjina all well supported in recent seasons.
And who can forget the deeds of Gr1 winner Trapeze Artist and Gr1 Golden Slipper winning filly Estijaab this season to add even further lustre to Snitzel.
As a $2.3 million dollar yearling, Boulder City obviously had the conformation to support his outstanding pedigree, but unfortunately was unraced due to a suspensory injury.
Multiple Champion Trainer Gai Waterhouse heaped praise on the son of Snitzel, "Boulder City showed immense ability in his work, but his issues stopped him from getting to the track."
Meanwhile, Riverbank Farm Principal Russell Osborne notes, "[Boulder City] is a beautifully conformed stallion who we feel privileged to offer to the Victorian breeding industry."
Of course, Boulder City is also a full-brother to ill-fated Gr3 Kindergarten Stakes winner El Divino and at the introductory fee of only $5,500 inc GST he offers terrific value with so much upside.
