The Kelly family of Newhaven Park are renowned for producing top class thoroughbreds and their 26 strong draft for Inglis Classic promises to keep up their great tradition for excellence.

In 2020, Newhaven Park have enjoyed tremendous success on the track with the likes of Group I winners Shout The Bar and Odeum, stakes-winning filly Kissonallforcheeks, sensational Singapore trained dual Group I winner Inferno, Queensland cult hero The Harrovian and rising 2 year old star Robodira all bred, raised or sold from their historic Boorowa farm.

Current season Group I winner Odeum was bred and sold by Newhaven Park.

The Newhaven Park Inglis Classic draft for 2021 features yearlings by a wide variety of popular and proven sires guaranteed to make broad appeal right across the market and includes nine yearlings by the farm’s exciting young sire Xtravagant.

A Champion 3YO in New Zealand and a superior sprinter miler by Pentire (GB), Xtravagant has had less than a handful of runners with his progeny expected to hit their straps in the latter part of the season.
