Calanda Claims Listed Ramornie Handicap

Promising three-year-old, Calanda, has delivered Peter and Paul Snowden their first Listed Ramornie Handicap as a partnership.

With Jim Byrne aboard, the gelding led most of the way to salute just ahead of The Monstar and stablemate Flippant.

“It’s a big thrill,” co-trainer Paul Snowden said immediately after the race.

“He beat a handy field which is pleasing.” Calanda now boasts a record of five wins and two places from just 11 starts. He will be spelled and brought back for the early Spring races.

“It’s a shame to tip him out because he is in such good order but we will look after him and see the benefits later on.”

Snowden was also full of praise for Flippant who was second up from a spell.

“She is a tough mare and to see her bounce back after that hard Healy run is a feather in her cap.

Peter Snowden trained the 2011 (Jerezana) and 2010 (Pinwheel) Ramornie winners when he was the head of Darley’s Australian operation.
