The Team

HENRY FIELD - Managing Director

For Henry, thoroughbred breeding has very much been part of his life for a long time. His grandfather (along with Stanley Wootton and Alf Ellison) imported breed-shaping stallion Star Kingdom into Australia. Henry was part of the first Darley Flying Start class, during which he got to travel the world and see how the racing and breeding industries vary from country to country. Subsequently Henry spent time in Ireland working with legendary horseman Timmy Hyde. From there he went on to spend five years with Coolmore, working with stallions, yearlings and in the bloodstock departments of Coolmore in Ireland, America and Australia. In 2010 Henry founded Newgate, taking the very best elements from his worldwide experience to develop a farm second to none when it comes to raising athletes of the very highest quality.

BRUCE SLADE - Director of Stallions

Bruce grew his passion for thoroughbred breeding and racing in New Zealand into his profession. A Bachelor of Commerce degree and extensive practical stud experience in Australia (Arrowfield) and New Zealand (Rich Hill, White Robe Lodge) led to the 2008 NZTBA Sunline International Management Scholarship. The scholarship took Bruce around the world to learn from the best operators in the thoroughbred business internationally: Cheveley Park Stud (UK), Coolmore (Ireland), and Taylor Made Farm (USA).

On his return, Bruce worked in a dual role as Marketing Assistant and South Island Bloodstock Representative/Auctioneer for world class auction house New Zealand Bloodstock. A chance meeting with Gai Waterhouse at Karaka 2010 led to a role as her Bloodstock Director until June 2013 before Bruce set up his own racing syndication company, Round Table Racing, which worked exclusively with Australia's Hall of Fame trainer until December 2014. The opportunity to join the forward thinking and progressive Newgate Farm team in 2015 was too good to refuse, and Bruce is dedicated to helping develop the stud into a world leader.
