Promising Snitz earned himself a chance at the Country Championships in NSW when he won at Doomben.
Snitz ($3.40), who was having his first run since September, finished too strongly to score his fourth win in eight starts.
The Championship is for horses trained in NSW country areas and Snitz qualifies because his trainer Matt Dunn is based at Murwillumbah.
Dunn said Snitz would have his next start at Doomben in a fortnight and then head to a Championship qualifying race at Grafton on March 11.
Dunn said Snitz wasn’t a big horse but he was game.
“I nearly used an apprentice on him but he really isn’t a kid’s horse.”
