The 1,100-metre horse race is happening tomorrow, Saturday, March 6, at the Royal Randwick Racecourse. In this event, Wild Ruler is a $2.30-favourite to make a victorious return.

Based on the news posted online by Australian horse betting information and news website Racenet, one-half of Snowden Racing confirmed that Wild Ruler would deal with a bit less pressure and pace at the Fireball Stakes 2021 tomorrow.

Wild Ruler’s trainer confirmed that the three-year-old bay colt goes into the Listed Fireball Quality in tremendously fine shape. Snowden remarked that they are looking forward to witnessing what the Randwick galloper could produce. At the Fireball Stakes 2021, James McDonald will ride aboard Gypsy Robin and Snitzel’s son. If Sydney’s leading jockey and Wild Ruler win, their team gets to take home the prize money worth $140,000, per the details posted on Australian horse betting information and news source, Just Horse Racing.
Wild Ruler is the champion of three of his seven horse racing starts. In 2020, he was Group One-placed in his final outing. During that time in the Coolmore Stud Stakes, he placed third behind star sprinting fillies Swats That and September Run. The classy Peter and Paul Snowden-trained colt has been fitted up for his comeback this year with two trials. Wild Ruler succeeded in both tests and appeared impressive to the eye in both of them.
As Wild Ruler resumes from a spell, he has bagged cash prizes worth $729,225 per the details from Racenet. The Fireball Stakes 2021 marks the commencement of a career-defining campaign for the Snowden Racing-trained runner. The younger Snowden cited that the Saturday contest is against Wild Ruler’s own age. He added that the galloper is then up against the older sprinters next time in the Galaxy.
Snowden confirmed that it gets more challenging again nowadays for Wild Ruler because it is not like his racehorse had been treading water on the scene for three or four years. The racehorse trainer said that Wild Ruler had always possessed a profile. He relayed that the Randwick resident would be returning into an age bracket where he had to step up once more to meet the mark.
Snowden remarked that the succeeding two tilts would tell them a lot more about Wild Ruler’s performance. The bay colt’s trainer expressed his confidence in his ward. Snowden said that his racehorse is a smart and fresh colt on the scene. He pointed out that Wild Ruler is prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. Additionally, Snowden described the galloper has matured.
This attribute had made them send the young racehorse away to aid him in growing up in the head, per Snowden. Wild Ruler had a Brisbane trip when he was two years old. Last spring, he went to Melbourne. With these experiences, Snowden said that Wild Ruler is now a better sprinter.
