Newgate was founded by Henry Field in 2010 with only a handful of mares on a 250 acre leased property. Today, Newgate is one of the leading stallion stations and nurseries in Australia encompassing 1,700 acres of prime Hunter Valley land and a major force within the International Thoroughbred Industry.
In 2012, two years on from its inception, Newgate acquired the Group 1 winning sprinter Foxwedge and the Newgate stallion division was established. Newgate continued to grow in the market and soon outgrew the original leased property. In 2013 Newgate expanded further by purchasing the historic Brooklyn Lodge Stud, a farm renowned for producing top racehorses, including Golden Slipper winners, Classic winners and Cup winners.
Deep Field joined the Newgate roster in 2015 for a fee of just $22,000 (inc GST). Now standing for 4 times that fee, he is firmly in place as a top 10 Australian sire, a position that he does not look likely to lose for a long time to come. With his own son, Cosmic Force, standing alongside him, Deep Field is a source of great pride for the farm.
The growth of Newgate has continued exponentially and just over a decade on, the farm proudly stands a host of exciting stallions, including Golden Slipper winner, Capitalist, and leading first season sire, Extreme Choice.
With a foundation based upon quality bloodstock and quality people, Newgate has flourished. With an aim of raising champion racehorses, Newgate’s ethos is that horses should be raised as naturally as possible to give them the raw strength and resilience required of top-class athletes.
As Newgate has grown, so has the farm’s reputation. Under the care of Henry and the management team, multiple Group 1 winners have been raised and sold off the farm, including Golden Slipper winner and Champion 2YO, Stay Inside. A son of the farm’s own, Extreme Choice.
Newgate also ranks among the top consignors at major Australian auctions. Pride in the racehorses produced and genuine values of transparency and integrity has seen Newgate achieve fantastic sales results annually.
