Big Parade Progress Can Add to Inglis Classic Filly

Tara Madgwick - Sunday December 20

There were four Randwick winners on Saturday that have siblings in upcoming sales and one of them is exciting Deep Field sprinter Big Parade.

The Mark Newnham trained four year-old Big Parade was favourite for the Benchmark 88 event over 1200m at his second run back from a spell and was super impressive in winning by more than three lengths.


Gelded during his last spell, Big Parade has won four of nine starts earning nearly $180,000 and looks to be a horse very much on the up.

“We know how much ability he’s got, but I think now we’ll see a bit of consistency from this horse,” said Mark Newnham.

“He paraded well today and was nice and relaxed at the tie up stalls. As a gelding now he’s learning to use that energy in a positive way.”

A $160,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the Middlebrook Valley Lodge draft, Big Parade is the best of two winners from Crystal Rock, a half-sister by Fastnet Rock to stakes-winner Zizou from the family of Group I winners King’s Legacy, Oohood and champion sire Not a Single Doubt.

Big Parade has a yearling half-sister by Hellbent that will be offered at Inglis Classic by Middlebrook Valley Lodge as Lot 555.
