Stakes Success for Snitzel's Reloaded

Winless since making a successful career debut at Rosehill in 2019, the Chris Waller-trained Snitzel gelding Reloaded rewarded his patient owners with a dominant win in Saturday's Listed TRHA Members' Quality (1600m) at Doomben.

In a tactical race, Cuba and Fabric strode along in front before Michael Cahill on Right And Wrong, and James McDonald on Reloaded made their runs well before the home turn.

Reloaded was the strongest at the finish defeating the Deep Field gelding Luvoir by a length with the veteran Manhattan Rain gelding Right Or Wrong a half-head back in third.

Stable representative Charlie Duckworth said the stable pulled the right rein by choosing this race in preference to the JRA Trophy.

"We have some pretty excited owners. He was dual accepted today, but we chose this over the 2000m race, Duckworth said.

"That (distance) is where he will be heading. We trained his half-brother, who ran in the derby for us, so if we can stretch him out in trip and if he gets a bit of confidence out of today, he will be a nice horse for us.”

Purchased by Harras Syndicate/Mulcaster Bloodstock for $350,000 out of the Arrowfield Stud draft at the 2018 Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Reloaded advances his record to two wins, three seconds and three thirds from 17 starts with earnings of $477,750.

He is one of six winners from seven to race and the first stakes-winner out of the crack racemare Hollow Bullet.
