Newgate Young Guns Dominate at MM

Monday, January 15, 2018


While one Northern Meteor son in Zoustar was tasting success on the racetrack with his first crop daughter Sunlight winning the $2million Magic Millions 2YO Classic, another in Newgate Farm’s Deep Field finished Magic Millions Book One as the leading first season sire by average and aggregate.

Newgate Farm have always had a huge opinion of Group II winning sprinter Deep Field and when he was priced at $22,000 to kick off his career we fielded an avalanche of interest from breeders.

He covered an astonishing 257 mares in his first season and then backed it up to cover 204 in 2016.

Those breeders would all be now feeling pretty good since the market obviously share our enthusiasm for the hulking sprinter, who broke track records at Randwick and Canterbury.

Deep Field had 39 yearlings average $219,231, his best result the colt from Reggae that made $675,000 for Kia Ora Stud early in the sale when secured by Orbis Bloodstock.

Deep Field had more yearlings catalogued for this sale than any other sire and finished fourth on the leading sire by aggregate list behind only I Am Invincible, Snitzel and Fastnet Rock, his 39 youngsters generating $8,550,000.

Australian Horse of the Year Dissident was not far behind with 34 yearlings averaging $203, 824 and an aggregate total of $6,930,000.

The champion so of Sebring delivered his best result early in the sale with a stunning colt from Prompt that made $525,000 for Newgate Farm when knocked down to George Moore Bloodstock.

A half-brother to Group winners Prompt Response and Prompt Return, he is the fifth foal of a terrific producer, whose previous four foals are all winners.

Snitzel’s Group I winning son Wandjina had 18 yearlings sell at an average $151,944 with his best result a colt from Heaven Has Eyes that made $360,000 for Sledmere Stud when purchased by Ciaron Maher Bloodstock.

All three stallions have big representation at upcoming Inglis sales so there will be plenty of opportunity to secure their progeny for buyers who may have missed out at Magic Millions.
