This Snitzel colt is the first foal for the Stakes-placed 2YO Precious Sophia. Precious Sophia is a daughter of Cecconi (Encosta de Lago). The Snitzel/Encosta de Lago cross is a successful one, particularly with the colts – producing 14% Stakes winners to runners including the Group 1 winners INVADER and SUMMER PASSAGE.

Cecconi is yet to be represented with his first runner as a broodmare sire, however his sire Encosta de Lago’s record in this department speaks for itself with the progeny of his daughters having a winning strike rate of 60%, and over 7.6% of them have earned black-type.

Precious Sophia’s dam sire is Jade Robbery (Mr Prospector) and Snitzel has had 1 runner bred on this exact cross – the Japanese juvenile winner Believe Tiara.

Cecconi’s dam sire Blazing Sword (Marscay) has also nicked very well with Snitzel, with this pair combining in the pedigree of 3 runners to-date and all are winners, and include the juvenile winner Wisdom Patch who also placed 4th at Group level at 2.
