Flying Artie Colt Wins $200,000 Inglis Scone 2YOChallenge

Tara Madgwick - Friday May 14

The Newgate Farm young gun sires have been a fixture winning feature juvenile races this season and kept the golden run going at Scone on Friday when David Pfieffer and the Darby Racing owners captured the $200,000 Inglis 2YO Challenge (1200m) with Flying Artie colt Artero.

David Pfieffer is no stranger to success in the lucrative Inglis Race Series having won the $1million Inglis Sprint earlier this year with three year-old So You Think colt Rocketing By.

For the Scone feature, he pinned his hopes on unraced Artero, who was well prepared for his debut with two recent trials.

Drawn wide in the big field of 16, Artero was allowed to find his feet by Josh Parr, who brought him right to the outside on turning for home.

Artero charged to the line as the widest runner, scoring a length win over well fancied  Hallowed Son.



Coming to the corner he was really building up momentum and we just needed some clean air,” said Josh Parr.

“He let down really well, even though he wandered a bit, he was really strong late. It was a fantastic effort.”



Artero was a $26,000 Inglis Classic Highway Session purchase.

Artero was a $26,000 Inglis Classic Highway Session purchase from the Lime Country Thoroughbreds draft for Darby Racing / Will Johnson Bloodstock and has banked over $125,000 for his debut victory.

Artero was bred in partnership by Lime Country Thoroughbreds (Lime Country are relocating to the Hunter Valley, read about it here) and is the third winner from three foals to race from well bred Exceed and Excel mare Ella Supera, a half-sister to Group I winner Redoute’s Dancer and to the dam of dual Group I winner Yankee Rose, who was raced with great success by Darby Racing owners winning over $2million.

The family also features current season Group III winner Miravalle and stakes-winner Isotope, so is clearly a pedigree on the rise.

Ella Supera has a weanling filly by Flying Artie and is back in foal to him again.

Artero is the seventh first crop winner for Champion 3YO Flying Artie, whose winners are headed by Group I MRC Blue Diamond winner Artorius.

Flying Artie stands at Newgate at a fee of $33,000.
