HOT Snitzel, winner of the recent Group 1 BTC Cup, will be a late nomination for the Stradbroke Handicap at Doomben on June 6.

Trainers Peter and Paul Snowden made the decision after the six-year-old gelding pulled up well after his first run for the stable.

Perth trainer Vaughn Sigley also has confirmed exciting sprinter Black Heart Bart will have his next run on in the Stradbroke, after finishing fourth in last Saturday’s Goodwood in Adelaide.

Wandjina hit-out for UK trip

AUSTRALIAN Guineas winner Wandjina will continue his preparation for a UK trip with an exhibition galloper at Randwick on Thursday — subject to the track being a soft 6 or better.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained three-year-old will dash up over 1200m with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

He was beaten a head by potential Australian Horse of the Year Dissident in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes at his last start and is being aimed at the Golden Jubilee Stakes.

He will be joined by Criterion, Brazen Beau and Shamal Wind as Australian gallopers at the famous carnival.

Froggy hopping this way soon

CRAIG Newitt has decided not to seek an extension to his six-month contract in Singapore.

He said while the riding was good, he and wife Karli, along with three young boys, believed a return to Melbourne on June 30 would be the preferred option.

Newitt has ridden 21 winners in Singapore, highlighted by Super One in the Group 2 Golden Horseshoe on Friday night, but the limited opportunities compared with the workload in Melbourne has been a disappointment.

Injury collars Pegus again

JOCKEY Mark Pegus may be sidelined for six-eight weeks after breaking a collarbone at Kilmore trackwork on Monday.

The 36-year-old had only returned this year after suffering a broken arm at the Cairns Cup meeting in August, and missed five months.

He has been in fine form recently, winning five races at four different meetings last week.

Winona on the move

LEADING Sydney apprentice Winona Costin has swapped her indentures from Gai Waterhouse to Peter and Paul Snowden.

Stewards agreed the tension between the Waterhouse stable and the apprentice was unviable and that she would be better suited elsewhere.

She has ridden 31 winners this season with her nearest rival Samantha Clenton on 13.
