Lim’s Sincere found an extra gear to ignite a winning weekend for the Meagher family in Singapore on Friday night.
The Snippetson speedball flew in front, well away from the fence, and then fought back when challenged by Hoshiko (Star Witness) in the straight. It was his 4th win over 1000m at Kranji and it was also the quickest at 58.48s.
“Not a bad day at the office,” trainer Dan Meagher said. “It was a well executed plan and we got the result thanks to a perfect ride by Razali Zawari.”
Meagher now operates the stables that were run by his father for over a decade in Singapore. John Meagher returned to Australia last year and his latest stakes winner arrived on Saturday when Savanna Amour saluted in the G3 Cockram Stakes at Caulfield.
Lim’s Sincere was purchased by former champion jockey Mick Dittman for $30,000 at the 2014 Magic Millions HIT Sale and Friday’s result send his earnings to the equivalent of AUD 202,805.
Scenic Lodge sire Snippetson got him from Exabaa (Anabaa). Her close relation Good Baby (Hussonet) won 15 races in Malaysia including the Magic Millions Classic.
Apart from his outstanding strike-rate in Australia – he led all WA stallions with 97 winners of 155 races last season – Snippetson has sired the winners of over 80 races in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia & Macau.
They’re durable, too. His first-crop included Electronic Motion, now a 10yo gelding on a hat-trick in New Zealand after recent wins at Oamaru and Riccarton for local trainer Aaron Taylor.
Snippetson stands at Scenic Lodge for $6,000 with Blackfriars ($12,000), Universal Ruler ($3,850) and Dash For Cash ($2,500). All fees (plus gst). Fees are subject to discount structures and for further details, contact Jeremy Smith on 0419 943 356.
