$320,000 Inglis Classic Colt for Deep Field

Tara Madgwick - Sunday February 9

Five winners since the start of the month including Saturday’s metropolitan juvenile winner Hancora Field has Newgate Farm's Deep Field riding high and he hit a home run at Riverside Stables on Sunday when his colt from Fragrant Storm sold for $320,000.

Consigned by Fairview Park Stud, the powerhouse bay was knocked down to China Horse Club / Newgate Bloodstock / Starlight Racing NSW and is the fifth foal of Fragrant Storm, an unraced half-sister by Exceed and Excel to stakes-winner Texan.

Linda Duckworth of Fairview Park was delighted with the result.

“He was very popular so I had a gut feeling he’d be among the top lots,” she said.

“He was a standout as a foal. His owners usually breed to race, but with this one I told them to have fun in the sale ring!”



Deep Field is the leading sire of three year-old winners in the country and has a big draft of 24 for this sale, click here to see them.
