Odyssey Moon

G1 two-year-old, classy sprinter - one of the very best two-year-olds by Snitzel, the phenomenal juvenile sire. Rated a point behind Sizzling and superior to Shamus Award, Wandjina, Spill The Beans and Sooboog at two.

Danehill, Redoute’s Choice, Snitzel: hails from a line of three of the most successful stallions in Australian racing and auction history. Out of an Arch mare, like hit US sire Uncle Mo; her half-sister won two of the greatest prizes for fillies in America.

'Athletic and well-muscled – which is a trait of the good Snitzels. A good-sized horse with plenty of substance and a lovely walk. Great colour and quality. If he throws yearlings who look like him we will be in good shape.' Olly Tait

Broke his maiden in the valuable Inglis Nursery, he was twice G2 placed, before improving again to take second, hard on the heels of Pride Of Dubai, in the G1 Sires’ Produce. Also rated the equal of Exosphere and above Headwater in a fine crop. Fast, durable and high-class from two to four.
