Newgate Young Guns in Demand

Friday, May 26, 2017


The progeny of Newgate Farm young gun sires Dissident, Deep Field and Wandjina were in keen demand at the 2017 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale this week.

Deep Field had the largest draft of any first season sire at this sale and ended up producing the highest aggregate of all sires with 25 of his stock generating $1,839,000 at an average $73,560.

The top seller for Deep Field was a colt from young Exceed and Excel mare Caesar’s Princess that fetched $240,000 for Attunga Stud when purchased by Musk Creek Farm.

Musk Creek Farm manager Scott Williamson told ANZ Bloodstock News the early maturing Deep Field colt was an ideal type to pinhook for next year’s yearling sales.

“He was a superior physical by a hot young sire at stud at Newgate. They have been very impressive types on the whole and we thought as a physical he was the best of the lot,” Williamson said.

“I think there is a genuine belief around the sales complex that these Deep Fields are very impressive, so I don't see any reason why that will change between now and the yearling sales. We will be sending him back through the ring in January at the Magic Millions hopefully.”

Dissident achieved the equal single highest sale of any first season sire with his colt from Fastnet Rock mare Celtic Sea selling for $300,000.

Consigned by Newgate Farm, the colt was bought by David Lucas as agent for Dubai passed Phoenix Investments.

Lucas told ANZ Bloodstock News the colt could end up back in a sales ring as a yearling.

“He was just a nice colt, lovely balanced colt, I think he will turn into a racehorse. My guess is that he will go back through a sale probably,” Lucas said.

“I think he could possibly make a later two-year-old, but I don't think he is going to jump out of the woods as an early two-year-old, but he could be a later two-year-old, for sure.  “There are a few nice horses here, but unfortunately there are more buyers than there are good horses, so you probably have to pay a bit more than you would elsewhere.”

Lucas said Australian Horse of the Year and five-time Group I winner Dissident had shown the traits he believes will make him a quality stallion.

 “I think he is going to turn into one of the better stallions in Australia, I think he has a big future,” he added.

Dissident enjoyed 100% clearance with 10 yearlings averaging $103,700.

Wandjina also proved popular with 11 yearlings selling at an average $80,773.

His best result came with a filly from Purcentage that made $165,000 for Sledmere Stud when secured by Rosemont Stud.

Wandjina still holds the benchmark for a first season sire at a weanling sale this year having had a colt from Ballet D’Amour (USA) sell for $335,000 at the Inglis Chairman’s Sale earlier this year.

Newgate Farm enjoyed great results selling 17 weanlings in total for $1,379,500 and we congratulate all buyers on their success.
