One to Watch – Wangaratta

Tara Madgwick - Monday November 30

Deep Field narrowly missed siring two stakes-winners last Saturday with Deep Speed and Spaceboy both finishing second in Black Type races in Melbourne and Sydney, but he’s had a string of promising winners of late including this debut winner at Wangaratta on Monday.

The Anthony and Sam Freedman trained three year-old filly Awapuni Miss was sent to the post a red hot favourite and despite racing greenly was far too good in cruising clear to win the 1170m maiden by two and a half lengths.


A modest $50,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Ashleigh thoroughbreds draft for Anthony Freedman Rcg/Blue Sky Bstock (FBAA), Awapuni Princess runs for a huge group of owners headed by the Boys Get Paid Syndicate.

She is the first winner for Love the Rock, a winning Fastnet Rock half-sister to Group I placed Stanica, the dam of Group III winner Rhythm to Spare.

The dominant leader of the second crop sires division last season, Newgate Farm's Deep Field is setting a brisk pace again with some 51 winners since August 1 including stakes-winners Portland Sky and Riddle Me That as well as his Group I placed colt Aysar.
