Snow­dens re­launch Mis­sile

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - RAY THOMAS COLIN HAYES HALL OF FAME HAND­I­CAP

MIS­SILE Coda might be start­ing a new ca­reer as a brood­mare soon but showed she re­tains her zest and en­thu­si­asm for rac­ing at Rose­hill Gar­dens yes­ter­day.

Co-train­ers Peter and Paul Snow­den put blink­ers on Mis­sile Coda and the mare re­gained her best form to lead through­out to eas­ily win the Colin Hayes Hall of Fame Hand­i­cap (1200m).

“I take my hat off to the Snow­dens, they changed the mare’s gear and the work they have done with her in the bar­ri­ers b was good for her con­fi­dence,’’ jockey An­drew A Ad­kins said.

“She was good in the bar­ri­ers (to­day) and the in­ten­tion was to lead with the blink­ers on.

“She trav­elled ex­tremely well, gave me a nice feel, we got some easy sec­tion­als and she skipped way for a dom­i­nant win.’’

Paul Snow­den said Mis­sile Coda ($16) could be given her chance at stakes level dur­ing the Bris­bane win­ter car­ni­val af­ter she raced away by nearly two lengths from Dis­so­lute ($8.50) with Star Re­flec­tion ($13) a length away third, just in front of the luck­less Noire ($2.70 favourite).
