Snitzel is one of only six sires in Australian history to win four consecutive Stallion Premierships, and as an active sire, there is likely more still to come. Bred by Francois Naude, Snitzel is by Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice, who in turn is by Champion Sire Danehill. Snitzel is the second foal of Listed Sapphire Stakes winner Snippet’s Lass (Snippets) who was a tough racemare, winning seven of her 41 starts and placing in 13 others. Snippet’s Lass was a daughter of imported stakes winner Snow Finch (Storm Bird) and Snippet’s Lass’ full brother Captain Bax was also tough, winning ten times including the Gr.3 Missile Stakes. Snitzel’s third dam was also a stakes winner, A Realgirl. Snippet’s Lass had only five foals after Snitzel including group winners Hinchinbrook, Viennese, and stakes placed winner Wiener (dam of Listed winner Rathlin).
