Snowdrop eyes top sprinting company

Talented WS-bred and raced mare Snowdrop is progressing well toward a new preparation that could see her mixing it with the country’s top sprinters. The well-related five-year-old dashed through the grades during her last campaign to take her record to six wins from 11 appearances.
“She’s been back in work here for about three weeks and she needs good tracks so there’s been no rush with her,” Cambridge trainer Tony Pike said. “We’ll be targeting some of the good summer sprints with her. The Railway is set weights and penalties now so she won’t get in as well as a handicap, but if her form warrants it we’d have a go.”
Snowdrop was put aside after she easily claimed a Rating 85 event at Te Rapa in May, having also won her previous two appearances at Ellerslie and Trentham to be unbeaten this year. She is a daughter of Pins and the Matamata nursery’s dual Group One winner Daffodil.
