This horse is being sold As Agent:

By: Royal Bloodstock

This good looking Son of SCISSOR KICK has only had 9 starts to date.

He has been racing in the always competitive NSW/VIC Country regions.

He has been unlucky in several runs. In his run at Wagga 22/11, his Jockey said he travelled quite good in the run but the horse on the outside laid all over him and they got a bit tight on the turn stopping any momentum.

Snappy Kicks ran a good race at the 1/11 where he went to the front over 1300ms and only compitulated late finishing 4 lengths off the winner.

In his last run 16/12 he was ridden 3 wide thoroughout and was unable to make ground.

He has 5 siblings to race with 4 being Winners including 8 x Winner APPLAUSE A STAR and 3 x Winner PAY THE DEELER who is racing well as a 5yo and has WON his last two starts!

He stands at approx 16hh, has a good temperament and easy to do anything with.

He is ready to go on with or give him a freshen up.

All vet exams and inspections prior to auction ending are welcome.
