Race Record






Ultimate Sniper retired as a NZ Horse of the Year.

He was a four time Group 1 winner which included a dominant Inter Dominion win which saw him become the first four year old in 28 years to win a traditional series.

Unraced as a two-year-old, Ultimate Sniper quickly became a sensation as a three-year-old, being unbeaten through the Spring culminating in a dominant victory in the NZ Sires Stakes 3yo Final.

He also scored resounding victories in the Alabar Classic, NZ Yearling Sales Series Final, Northern Derby and NZ Derby on his way to being awarded NZ Three-Year-Old Pacer of the Year.

“He’s a gorgeous type and just the kindest, sweetest horse and really intelligent.”

“It didn’t matter what the tempo in the race was. He could fire a slick quarter if you wanted but really time meant nothing to him, he just did whatever he had to do so effortlessly,” said co-trainer and regular driver Natalie Rasmussen.

A powerfully built black stallion, Ultimate Sniper is a stunning type. He is also beautifully bred.

He is a full-brother to Ultimate Machete who, like his brother, was also NZ’s Three and Four-Year-Old Pacer of the Year. Their dam (Reality Check) was a smart race filly winning the NZ Yearling Sales Series Two-Year-Old Fillies’ Final. She is also the dam of the top racemare, Major Reality (1:50.9, $434,415) whose first foal sold for $300,000 at this year’s Auckland yearling sale.

His grandam is the NZ Broodmare of Excellence winner, Maureens Dream, who is a half-sister to the excellent sire Tuapeka Knight.
