Snitzel Colt Popular on Day One of Karaka 202025 Jan 2020

A well-related Snitzel colt sold to expectations for Cambridge Stud when he made $375,000.

The son of multiple Group One winner Katie Lee was knocked down to Te Akau chief David Ellis.

“You have got to meet the market and get these horses sold,” Chief Executive Officer Henry Plumptre said.

“This colt is a combination of Mum and Dad. He’s not big, but Snitzel wasn’t a huge yearling. He punches well above his weight and is a fantastic stallion.”

Katie Lee is the only horse to have completed the Group One double of the New Zealand 1000 and 2000 Guineas.
She has produced two winners and has an Almanzor foal at foot and is back in foal to the multiple Group One winner.

The late Tavistock was also keenly sought after with a colt out of Darrell and Peter Hollinshead's Group One winner Pondarosa Miss knocked down for $300,000 to the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

A Tavistock half-brother to the winner and Group performer Divine Power is also destined for Hong Kong after selling to Simple Bloodstock Services for $250,000.

The China Horse Club’s Michael Wallace liked the look of the American Pharoah filly and went to $200,000 to secure her.

The filly is out of the unraced Dubawi mare Latest Plan, a daughter of the Group One performer Badminton.
