Private Thoughts



Champion Thoroughbreds and John O'Shea Racing are excited to be offering this Snitzel x Tip The Wink filly to our owners in 2018.

This cross has produced one of Snitzel's fastest sons in multiple G1 winning RUSSIAN REVOLUTION (The Oakley Plate and The Galaxy) who earned $1,284,225 and is now standing at Newgate Stud for a service fee of $55,000. The Snitzel over a Stravinski mare cross has produced 4 named runners for 3 winners.

She is very much in the same strong mould as Snitzel himself and out a Listed winner and Group 1 placed winning Stravinski mare TIP THE WINK. We are delighted to present this strong, fluid walking filly with a no nonsense attitude for syndication.

Leading Central Districts (NZ) trainer Mike Breslin who trained TIP THE WINK stated she was “not a big filly but impressive, very genuine with plenty of speed and she was physically a strong type. She was a little unlucky running 3rd 0.4L behind the winner in the Group 1 ARC Railway Handicap (1200m). She won 6 races for us including 2 Listed races. I think the Snitzel cross with her will produce a very speedy animal”

TIP THE WINK is from the great NZ HULA DANCE (HULA CHIEF, HULA DRUM, HAWAIIAN SONG) that produced multiple Group 1 winners. She has produced 3 named foals 2 of which have been presented at the races both of them winners. There is plenty of residual value in this family moving forward including recent Listed winner GLOBAL THINKING and her 2 siblings winning this season.

Jason Abrahams stated "She is quite an athletic filly, not overly big, but Snitzel and her dam are not overly big, there is plenty of attitude to her, she's out of a Stravinsky mare so it's on the same cross as Group One winner Russian Revolution who is going to Stud this year.”

"She should go early, she's an early foal and we'll get her broken in now and see if we can get her back for the Karaka Million in January."
