May has been a terrific month for Snitzel. 

He's increased his Australian prizemoney by more than $1.3 million, slipping past Street Cry to claim the No. 1 spot, and an all-time earnings record, on the Australian General Sires' premiership. And within a few hours on 13 May, he added a new Group 1 winner and three new stakeswinners to his season statistics.

But one thing he hadn't done, since Risen and General Mu on Anzac Day, was put up any new 2YO winners. Instead, he sat on 30 alongside Without Fear, who achieved that number in 1975/76 from a crop of fewer than 50 foals, and his own tally in 2015/16.

Snitzel has taken care of that this weekend, marching straight on to 32 juvenile winners, after trans-Tasman wins by Pymble at Newcastle on Saturday, and Shadow Dancer at Rotorua in New Zealand on Sunday.
