Third stakes win on the board for Snippets Land Trainer Peter Snowden admits he considered scratching Snippets Land (Snippetson) before the gelding scored his first win in two years at Caloundra. Snippets Land ($20) drew the outside barrier in a field of 17 yesterday but stormed home late to beat I'm A Rippa (Love Conquers All) by half a length in the Spear Chief Handicap (Listed, 1400m). "When I saw he had drawn the outside barrier, I felt that I would probably scratch him and send him for a spell," Snowden said. "He also isn't at his best on wet tracks. But we decided to roll the dice and it has come up a winner."
