Peter & Paul Snowden Will Hold The Strongest Hand In Any Stable In This Year’s Magic Millions 2yo Classic

Peter & Paul Snowden currently have equal favorites for Saturday’s $2 million highlight event on the Gold Coast, with long-loved Empire Of Japan joining the market led by the Sovereign Foundation .

Combined, their three runners account for more than 40% of the market, and that still pales in comparison to their team in 2016, when the two-year-old Capitalist star started with $1.40 and won won in a sprint, with steady friend Niccolance finishing fourth with $10.

While they may not have the Capitalist’s elite horse yet, Paul Snowden, who trains with his father Peter, is confident that the best is yet to come for the Sovereign Fund, who won the race. stage 3.5 in Doomben last start .

“I don’t think he ran his best race in this preparation, he’s had a great two weeks from Doomben, he’s been here on the Gold Coast with me for the last ten days and all What he did was grow. I know he didn’t run the best in this preparation,” Snowden said.

That belief was echoed by the market with the Sovereign Fund to $5.50 with an equal option with TAB as Empire Of Japan only inched slightly towards the same level, and similarly, Snowden has little advantage between the pair.

“He only needed one run to get him where we are today, so three weeks ago his work was sharp, the sections and data from the race were absolutely outstanding and proved to be one of the best of the day,” Snowden said.

The stable’s third chance, The Godfather, was completed after Empire Of Japan when they met at Randwick, but Snowden believes there’s a reason an immature horse is still learning his craft.

“He’s not an aggressive horse but we sent him that signal when he won at Eagle Farm just to jump and take the lead and unfortunately that’s what he wanted to do at Eagle Farm. second place…we tinkered with the device a bit, he’ll be wearing a noseband on Saturday,” Snowden said.

While the Sovereign Fund led the way during the previous start and Empire Of Japan is back in the field, Snowden is not worried about the hurdles, the first fund expands at 17 and the latter at 11, with The Godfather at 20. “It’s okay, they all join a couple with emergencies… I have horses that can take a spot in the race, they don’t have to steer them to speed or anything. anything like that so I’m pretty relaxed… I’m looking forward to the challenge,” Snowden said.
