Newgate Raised Prompt Response Closes in on a Million

Sunday, April 1, 2018


The Group II ATC Emancipation Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday was won by quality Beneteau mare Prompt Response, who was foaled and raised at Newgate Farm for her owner breeders Ron Hamer and Mark Sowerby.

Prepared by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, she earned a fourth stakes success when beating a high class field to win the 1500 metre feature by a neck.

"She's a tough mare. She had a pretty soft run up near the lead but I think I was headed in the straight but she fought back and won,” said winning rider Damien Oliver.

"She hasn't quite won a Group 1 yet but there were Group 1 winners in that race so it would be nice to see her win a Group 1.”

Co-trainer Gai Waterhouse said she would give Prompt Response a chance to win that elusive Group I in the Coolmore Legacy (Queen Of The Turf Stakes).

"She's a very honest mare, a quality mare down to her tippy toes and at this level she is incredibly hard to beat,” Waterhouse said.

Prompt Response has the overall record of five wins and nine placings from 24 starts with earnings in excess of $945,000.

A sister to 2014 Group III VRC Maribyrnong Plate winner Prompt Return, she is the fourth foal of the Exceed And Excel mare Prompt whose first two foals are stakes-placed Diamond Glow and Hong Kong winner Mr Right.

Prompt is now in the ownership of SF Bloodstock and has a yearling colt by Newgate Farm’s Australian Horse of the Year Dissident that sold for $525,000 at the recent Magic Millions Yearling Sale to the bid of George Moore Bloodstock.

She produced a colt by Medaglia D’Oro (USA) last spring and is now in foal to Capitalist.
