Russian Revolution Retired

Russian Revolution | Bronwen Healy

Last weekend's G1 Oakleigh Plate winner Russian Revolution (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}-Ballet d'Amour, by Stravinsky) has been retired from racing and will take up stud duties at Newgate Farm later this year. Trained by Peter and Paul Snowden for a partnership including Newgate SF, China Horse Club, Sir Owen Glenn's Go Bloodstock and breeder John Stuart, Russian Revolution won twice at two before taking the G3 Vain S. and G2 Roman Consul S. in the spring of his 3-year-old campaign. He added the G1 The Galaxy H. last March over The Everest winner Redzel (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}) followed by the Sept. 9 G2 McEwen S. Off the board in the G1 Moir S. on Sept. 29, he bounced back last weekend to post a second Group 1 win and retires with seven wins in 11 starts for earnings of $992,125.

“Russian Revolution has nothing more to prove and the owners have elected to retire him on a winning note,” said Peter Snowden. “He's absolutely one of the quickest horses we have ever trained.”
