Deep Field X Shadows
1 year old Chestnut Colt
Sire: Deep Field Dam: Shadows
Please find below the photos of the Deep Field x Shadows colt that was purchased at the Magic Millions yearling sale.
The yearling colt is by first season sire Deep Field, who was an undefeated metropolitan winning 3yo who trained on to win the Group 2 VRC Tab.com.au Stakes as a 4yo. Deep Field is off to a flying start with his first crop of yearlings. Many leading stables have purchased his progeny and they realised up to $675,000 at the recent Magic Millions yearling auction. Deep Field is by quality sire Northern Meteor and is a half-brother to Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win.
Our colt is the first foal of the Dane Shadow mare Shadows. Shadows was a winner at 1200m and is a half-sister to Group 2 winner Danabaa ($280K in prize money). This is the family of Group 1 winner Ball Park, Group 3 winners Deposition ($621K) and Ventura as well as Listed winners Slater and Accuse.

“…Lovely early foal by Deep Field, I really loved this horse and if I were to buy only one Deep Field then this would be the one. He is a bigger and stronger type of first foal than what you normally see. He is very correct and has a lovely hind quarter on him and I think he got that from his dad as Deep Field was a really powerful sprinting sort of horse. He is a relaxed colt and what you see in the vision is exactly how he behaved every time I saw him. He has a big walk, beautiful temperament, good head carriage and I think he will make it as a 2yo. We will put programs in place for him to be given a chance in the juvenile races. Physically he has the make up to impress us and we were rapt to get him at good value...” Mick Price
