Newgate Sires Dominate $250,000 Inglis Classic
Media Release - Thursday February 8
The field for the $250,000 Inglis Classic race this Saturday at Warwick Farm for juveniles sold at last year's Inglis Classic Yearling Sale has proven a glowing endorsement for Newgate Farm with six of the 16 runners sired by stallions standing at the progressive Hunter Valley nursery.

Foxwedge is the sire of race favourite SanctimoniousRace favourite Sanctimonious, a brilliant last start winner at Moonee Valley from the powerful Tony McEvoy stable, is by the farm's Group I sire Foxwedge as is Chamfer, who was third at his first start at Kembla last month for the Noel Mayfield-Smith stable.

Sizzling has two runners in Burbank and Gaffa, although the Chris Waller trained Star Thoroughbreds owned Burbank is likely to tackle the Listed ATC Lonhro Plate over the shorter distance of 1100 metres following two very unlucky seconds at his only starts to date.

Newgate Farm's other first season sires Eurozone and The Factor (USA) have one runner each in Eurosay and Momentum Factor.

Runners by Newgate Farm's first season sires Sizzling, Eurozone and The Factor are eligible to pick up a $100,000 bonus paid to the recorded buyer of these horses if they happen to win the race.

The same bonus is being offered at this year's sale for the next generation of exciting young sires in Deep Field, Dissident and Wandjina if their offspring can win the $2million Inglis  Millennium in 2019.
