Sex: Gelding

Age: 3

Foaled: Aug 26, 2016

Country: Australia



Please find below the photos of the Deep Field x Shadows colt that was purchased at the 2018 Magic Millions yearling sale.

This now gelding, is by first season sire Deep Field, who was an undefeated metropolitan winning 3yo who trained on to win the Group 2 VRC Stakes as a 4yo. Deep Field is off to a flying start with his first crop of yearlings now 2 year-olds. Many leading stables have purchased his progeny and they realised up to $675,000 at the recent Magic Millions yearling auction. His first season crop have now just ticked over with 18 winners, the most recent a horse called Three Beans scored an impressive debut victory at Ballarat on May 28. Deep Field also has two very handy horses in Cosmic Force (prize money over $228k) winner of the Gr3 Pago Pago and Hawker Hurricane (prize money $130k) winner of the 2YO Magic Millions Classic at Ballarat. We think we have found a handy one too, Scorpius had his first start on June 3 on a Heavy 10 and won impressively. Deep Field is by quality sire Northern Meteor and is a half-brother to Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win.

This gelding 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.

The Deep Field x Shadows gelding was purchased for $160,000 at the 2018 Magic Millions yearling sale. Now a 2YO, the colt has been broken in, has completed mini training preparations, been into Caulfield and is now currently spelling with a view to racing him in his upcoming preparation. He is due to come back into work mid June.

Ownership opportunities include purchase price and GST, all vet checks, transport from the auction to Ledger Racing, breaking in expenses at Ledger Racing, training, spelling, gelding and photos and video of the colt.
