Snitzel leader to Laurel Oak

Laurel Oak Bloodstock (FBAA) topped the opening session of the Inglis Classic yearling sale on Saturday evening with a Snitzel colt from Hussterics (Lot 17) that made $170,000.

The colt is a half-brother to Beneteau winners Lady Jivago (2015 Inglis 2YO Classic) and Hussterical.  The latter is trained by Gai Waterhouse and was placed at Warwick Farm & Canterbury before breaking through at Newcastle just hours before the start of the Sale.

Laurel Oak manager Louis Mihalyka outlasted determined bidding from interstate agents to take home the well-related colt.  “I obviously liked his pedigree, and I really liked the currentness of the mare,” he said.  “More than that, the horse is a real athlete and he looks like a runner.

"When Snitzel is inbred through the Easy Date pedigree, it has resulted in very successful crosses and this colt has everything he needs to be a top two-year-old and three-year-old.  We have a few more to look at the sale before deciding on a trainer.”
