Choice We Had took his winning prizemoney tally to $137,317 and co-trainer Peter Snowden is hoping that will be enough to get the five year old into the final field for the Magic Millions Cup.

“The plan was always to try to win a couple of races and look at the Gold Coast because he is a Magic Millions graduate,” Snowden said.

Winning jockey Tye Angland settled Choice We Had in the second half of the field from barrier one and the Choisir five year old had plenty of work to do at the top of the straight.

While Snowden was very concerned that Choice We Had’s chances of winning looked dim, but Angland never gave up and navigated a winning path for the $3.70 second favourite in between horses before easing to the outside to over overhaul Sir Plush ($3.50 favourite) and Most Exalted ($8.50).

“I was giving up at the furlong and I was telling (co-trainer Paul Snowden) he can’t win from there but (Tye Angland) kept riding him and got him home,” Snowden said.

Choice We Had has been racing very consistently during his latest campaign and last Saturday’s win was his second from his last six starts as he worked his way up through the classes.

Choice We Had was also been placed at his other four runs this preparation.

The Peter and Paul Snowden Racing Team was also in the winner’s stall at Rosehill on Saturday with Princefamous in the 1100m BenchMark 93 Handicap.

Princefamous was having his first run back since June 16 when tenth in a 1100m BenchMark 85 Handicap at Rosehill and was given a well-judged ride in front to score an all the way win for Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy.

Saturday’s win was Princefamous’ fifth from eleven starts and took his prizemoney tally to $172,555.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
