Pariah Conquers Canonbury

By Brad Gray

By definition, a ‘pariah’ is an outcast but the horse namesake is anything but after he took out the G3 Canonbury Stakes for Peter and Paul Snowden.

The two-year-old colt, who is a three-quarter brother to Melito, dashed quickly when asked after leaders Hualalai and Showtime started to waver which didn’t help the path of race favourite Menari, who flashed home to run a luckless second.

“He quickened when (Kerrin) wanted him to around the corner. The favourite didn’t have much luck buried away but this horse has so much upside. He’s only going to improve from that,” said Peter Snowden.

“He has had those kind of smarts the entire time. He has been push button in his work. He doesn’t overrace, has always shown good ability and adaptability. That’s hugely important in a two-year-old.

“It gives me a benchmark on where the horse fits in. I know what plan I’ve got and hopefully I can pull it off,” Snowden said before mentioning that the colt is likely to head south for the Blue Diamond Prelude.

That leaves Khan, who is also owned by James Harron Bloodstock, as the stable’s Golden Slipper hope and he’ll be seen next in the Silver Slipper (Feb 18).

“(Khan) trialled really well yesterday and is going great. We are just lucky to have two nice horses in the stable.”

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was also glowing in his appraisal for Pariah.

“He travelled supremely well the whole way and on the bend I was on double raps. He had them put them away pretty easily. There’s nice improvement to come and he’s got a great attitude,” McEvoy said.
