At Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group race success when 4YO bay mare Snitty Kitty (Snitzel-Lassiter's Cat, by Tale of the Cat) put on an exhibition of brilliant sustained speed when scoring a dominant win in the $200,000 Gr2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) for 3YO+, defeating Super Too & Faatinah. A $175,000 yearling consigned by Willow Park at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, Snitty Kitty improved her record to 6 wins (including the Listed Lightning Handicap) & 3 placings from 11 starts for $385,785 in earnings. Trainer Henry Dwyer was full of praise for Snitty Kitty who set a new race record of 56.28 seconds. "I've never had a horse simply improve out of nowhere like her," Dwyer told racing.com. "Usually the good horses show something to start but we started on a very low base with her." Dwyer said Snitty Kitty was now likely to head to the spelling paddock with Gr1 goals in mind for the autumn. "There's not a lot left for her this spring as we don't want to push her out to 1200 metres and the Oakleigh Plate really looks the race for her to win a Group 1," he said. "She's by no means found her mark yet…she's very dynamic and untapped."
