Freak accident claims Snippetson
Western Australian stallion Snippetson died after a freak accident at Scenic Lodge on Monday morning in which he slipped in his paddock. The 21-year-old son of Snippets was the sire of 15 stakes winners overall, having relocated from Widden Stud in 2016.
In a statement released by Scenic Lodge, General Manager Jeremy Smith said: “We are all absolutely devastated and in total shock.
“For something so straightforward as a little stumble to take his life is hard to get your head around. I would like to thank everyone that has supported Snippetson since he relocated to us and a massive thanks to all our staff involved that cared and loved him so much especially our Stud Manager Kirsty who had an incredible bond with Snippy.”
