Gunnison Fires Todman Shot

By Brad Gray

Team Snowden trained the quinella of the Group Two Todman Stakes with Gunnison fighting off Invader.

“I’ve been bagging this horse for a month. I’m loath to rap him now but he just keeps stepping up,” admitted co-trainer Peter Snowden.

“His (debut win) at Canberra was very, very good, albeit what I thought was an average race but the way he won there was a lot of authority in it. He ran time, he’s very genuine, he’s trained on so well since so I was quietly confident but with Gerald’s horse (Menari) there I thought he was just another class above us.”

Blake Shinn has a great association with Harron Bloodstock, most memorably via Capitalist, and warned they’ll be a “formidable combination in the years to come.”

“(Gunnison) jumped really well and I elected to go to the front. He travelled nicely and handled the conditions well,” said Shinn.

“Invader challenged me at the 200m and it was a thrilling battle, especially going toe to toe with Joao and my horse dug deep. It was a great finish.”

Meanwhile, Gerald Ryan reported that Menari had a good blow after the race being his first run in five weeks. Tim Clark rode a clever race on the easing favourite but he failed to handle the heavy going.

“He loomed up like he was going to win but his condition gave out on the real testing track, which he probably didn’t love either,” said Clark.
