Fast Clip looked a stakes horse in the making when he scored an effortless win at Randwick this afternoon.
A member of the all conquering Gai Waterhouse stable, Fast Clip made it back to back wins when he strolled home for an impressive all the way success.
A son of former outstanding Magic Millions graduate Snippetson, Fast Clip is destined for bigger and better things according to connections.
“That’s exactly what it was – an exhibition gallop,” Waterhouse said. “I’ve got so much time for this horse.”
Waterhouse is a fan of the Snippetson progeny.
“He’s the cheapest and best value sire in Australasia,” she added. “Snippetson – there is my tip for the day.”
Winning rider Nash Rawiller has thrown his leg over plenty of quality gallopers and he also is excited about Fast Clip’s future.
“He’s a lovely horse,” Rawiller reported. “He’s really matured this time in.”
“He showed from the first day he’d come back into work that he’d gone to a whole new level,” he added.
“He’ll win a better race – he’s going really well.”
A Turangga Farm graduate, Fast Clip was purchased by Waterhouse for a group of owners for $180,000 at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
With three wins already from his six starts to date, Fast Clip has already earned $111,030.
By Snippets’ stakes winning sire son Snippetson, Fast Clip is from the Sydney performed mare Hint of Glory.
A daughter of Honour and Glory, Hint of Glory is a half sister to the Group One winner Sky Cuddle, Group Three winner Sky Love and last night’s Group Two Australia Stakes runner-up Undeniably.
Further back it is the family of star gallopers including Groucho, Twilight Cove, Acecay and Count to Zero.
