Deep Field Colt Wins MM Clockwise Classic

Saturday, November 24, 2018

Our exciting young sire Deep Field had a great day on Saturday with promising colt Hawker Hurricane taking out the $200,000 Magic Millions Clockwise Classic at Ballarat, while talented Spaceboy was a gallant second in the $150,000 ATC Golden Gift at Rosehill.

Ridden by Mark Zahra for trainer Michael Moroney, Hawker Hurricane had just two behind him coming into the straight. Zahra saved ground when finding a narrow seam between runners and once he found some daylight, Hawker Hurricane kept up a strong gallop to defeat well bred Zoustar filly Charvet by three-quarters of a length.

Zahra said the good looking colt still has plenty to learn.

"He's a very green horse. Luckily, I drew well because I was able to save ground," Zahra said. 

"He showed a good turn of foot once I got out. I liked him in his jump out - I just needed a bit of luck today and I got it in the finish.

"He doesn't know what he is doing yet and he's going to be a really nice horse in the autumn."

Bred by Heath Newton, Hawker Hurricane was a $150,000 Magic Millions purchase out of the Widden Stud draft by Paul Moroney Bloodstock.

He is the first foal of the Bernardini (USA) mare Bernarsini, a half-sister to dual Group III MRC Sandown Classic winner Mahhisara and Group III MRC MRC Moonga Stakes winner Ulmann.

Willow Park Stud will offer a filly from the first crop of Newgate Farm’s speedy I Am Invincible son Super One out of Bernarsini at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in January (Lot 916).

Deep Field also has another promising performer in the Gary Portelli-trained Spaceboy who led and fought on gamely at his career debut when second behind the new Golden Slipper favourite Tassort at Rosehill Gardens earlier in the day.

Buyers in the market for a Deep Field yearling will be spoilt for choice with 42 catalogued for the Gold Coast and 36 heading to the Inglis Classic.
