MAZU TO SPELL WITH SPRING IN MIND

After a rousing win in the Group One Doomben 10,000, Team Snowden have decided to spell rising star Mazu rather than continuing to race the up and coming sprinter after an impressive win at Eagle Farm

Mazu to head for a spell after 10,000 win

Mazu will miss the Stradbroke Handicap with the Snowdens favouring a full throttle campaign towards the Spring and a run in the Everest which means heading straight for a spell after winning this weeks Group One contest. 

While Mazu is still currently well in the betting for both the Kingsford Smith Cup and the Stradbroke Handicap Paul Snowden confirmed Mazu would now head straight for a spell.

“My opinion is that he is in the paddock tomorrow, the owners are pretty happy with whatever we want to do,” Snowden said.

“That was a tough run for him, knowing the horse, he should not have won that race because he didn’t like that at all and he still won.

“I don’t think he has to do it (Stradbroke), I honestly think the horse would run a mile just knowing the horse and what he has done this prep.

“He had a tough run on this track, he was already coming off a freshen up to get to here, why go again?

“It is all about The Everest now, he will spell up here so hopefully the weather turns around, he will come back a better horse too.”

Mazu’s rise to the top has been a quick one however with him starting out with a benchmark 78 win in the Autumn and now Group 1 winner in the Winter. However Snowden admits there were nerves on Saturday morning.

“I was really scared (on Saturday) because there is only a narrow walking area, everyone is on top of you and there is a lot of action – he just walked in and handled it,” he said.

“That was the best he has ever been at the races.

“He has turned into this horse that has not only turned his form around but his whole capability and how he handles his racing.

“He never got to travel, I know there was good speed and he was in the right spot to win, but he tows you in at the 300m.

“We wanted to stalk for as long as we could because he wouldn’t have known where the hell he was in that race, he looks around too.”

Mazu currently sits as a $7 shot for the Everest in October.
