Two special sons of Snitzel have combined to deliver the type of weekend that dreams are made of for Newgate Farm Managing Director Henry Field.
In a dizzying period spanning just under 20 hours, Newgate and long-time allies such as the China Horse Club and Go Bloodstock struck stallion-making Group 1 gold in both Melbourne and Sydney.
Wild Ruler (Snitzel) provided the first leg of the massive double on Friday night with a tenacious performance to narrowly win the G1 Charter Keck Cramer Moir S. at Moonee Valley.
The following afternoon at Rosehill, 3-year-old colt In The Congo (Snitzel) added a Group 1 sparkle to his very first racing preparation with an all-the-way win in race-record time in the XXXX Golden Rose.
