Two Stakes Horses for Snippetson
The $125,000 Northam Cup on Sunday produced a dead heat decision with Snippetson five year-old Rebelson sharing the victory with Blackfriars gelding Son of Something.
It was the first stakes win for the Adam Durrant trained Son of Something, while for the Darren McAuliffe trained Rebelson it was a welcome return to form.
A two time stakes-winner previously, Rebelson has the overall record of seven wins and seven placings from 24 starts and has won over $390,000 in prizemoney.
Rebelson is the first foal of unraced Falbrav (IRE) mare Rebel Sister, whose dam Sister Theresa is a half-sister to multiple Group I winner Savannah Success, the dam of Cox Plate winner and successful sire Savabeel.
The success of Rebelson has inspired the owners of Rebel Sister to send her back to Snippetson and the mare has a yearling filly that is a full sister to Rebelson and a Stratum colt foal to follow.
Rebelson is one of six stakes-winners for Snippetson, who also featured on Saturday with a promising two year-old when the Liam Birchley trained filly Hot Snippety finished a gallant second in the $250,000 Listed MVRC Inglis Banner at Moonee Valley.
A brilliant debut winner at Doomben before being sent to Melbourne, Hot Snippety has already won $86,600 from just the two starts!
Priced at $8,800, Snippetson is a great value option on the star studded Widden Stud roster.
