“A quality filly, she’s a lovely shape and very typical of the Deep Fields which all seem to have lovely depth of girth and big hips.”
After waiting very patiently during a sale which the progeny of Deep Field have averaged well over $200,000 we were rewarded in securing this filly for a sale ring bargain at just 25% of the stallion’s average price. She comes from the great nursery of Senga Bisset’s Ashleigh Thoroughbreds, breeders of numerous stakes winners, notably Group 1 winners Danni Martine, Bulla Borghese and All Time High. This filly handled the whole sale process like a true professional and looks the type to develop into a speedy two-year-old performer at a very affordable price point. She will be trained by Brad Widdup, who is quickly emerging as an elite trainer with an astonishing strike rate of 30% in his first season training – don’t miss the chance to join this exceptional team!
This filly is by the hugely exciting Deep Field, whose first progeny received a universal ‘thumbs-up’ from the industry as his first yearlings at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale averaged over $200,000 off a $20,000 service fee. We have been hugely impressed with his progeny, with a record number of inspected yearlings by him receiving a top physical inspection grade. He was an outstanding sprinter and, importantly for his future as a stallion, is impeccably bred as a full-brother to Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win and from the family of important stallions such as Danewin and Commands.
She is also a half-sister to the very speedy Rainy Day Woman, who gave her owners the thrill of a lifetime when gaining a start in the $2,000,000 Magic Millions 2YO Classic won by Capitalist. The broodmare sire of this filly is the Champion 2YO and Champion 3YO Viscount, who is proving to be a top-class broodmare sire with several stakes winners, notably Gimcrack Stakes winner Jorda.
Another interesting observation is that the crossing of Northern Meteor blood with Viscount has only 1 runner so far and that is the multiple Group placed filly and now very valuable broodmare Northern Glory.
