More Details About The Arrowfield 3yo Sprint

2022 Arrowfield Sprint Details, Race Result and Recap

The 2022 Arrowfield Sprint was won by Mazu who was trained by the partnership of Peter and Paul Snowden. Mazu was ridden to victory in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint by jockey Sam Clipperton who piloted the four year old gelding first over the line defeating a small field of just four runners.

Build Up To The 2022 Arrowfield Sprint

The build up to the 2022 Arrowfield Sprint was marred by continuous withdrawals leaving a field of just four runners to contest the Group 2 contest at Royal Randwick worth $1m in prize money.

After having a field of 10 runners nominated for the 2022 Arrowfield Sprint six were withdrawn including the likes of Chris Waller stable stars Ranch Hand and Shaquero as well as General Beau and Marine One who had been listed to run in the Group 2 contest.

After all the withdrawals we were left with a field of 4 to contest the 2022 edition of the Arrowfield Sprint over 1200m - In The Congo for Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Paulele for James Cummings and Godolphin, Mazu for Peter and Paul Snowden and finally I Am Lethal for John O’Shea.

In the lead up a lot of the talk was around the number one horse which was In The Congo. Already a Group 1 winner who toppled WS Cox Plate runner Anamoe, In The Congo was returning to his own age group after placing last time out in The Galaxy against the older horses.

In The Congo had been backed into favourtism for the race at $2.45 and had been expected to go close after his Galaxy run however Mazu also came into the race in good form having won the Listed Darby Munro Stakes defeating In The Congo when carrying the same weight previously.

Result Of The 2022 Arrowfield Sprint

3rd - 2. Paulele (2) - 56.5kg - $3.60

2022 Arrowfield Sprint Race Recap

Before the race it was clear that punters only wanted two runners from the small field and that being the Snowden trained runner Mazu who was at $2.70 and In The Congo for Bott and Waterhouse who was jumping at $2.45.

With the Arrowfield Sprint only being a small field it was expected that In The Congo would take a traditional front running position and after the barriers crashed back Mazu jumped well but it wasn’t long until the Bott and Waterhouse three year old would jump to the front and take up the runner.

The two favourites took the lead with Paulele in the Godolphin colours and I Am Lethal taking a sit at the rear and watching the action unfold. You could see in the run though there was an air of arrogance about Mazu already though who was under a strong hold from jockey Sam Clipperton.

The order didn’t really change until the turn in the straight where Clipperton sat quietly and moved past In The Congo who could only grind on the heavy track. Paulele battled on in third whilst I Am Lethal failed to land a glove on the front three.

Once Mazu went past In The Congo he was ridden out and easily claimed the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint for the Snowdens and give the three year old Gelding his first Group Race title at Royal Randwick.
