Sponsored Content - by Tara Madgwick - Tuesday February 6

All yearling vendors love to have a big horse to hang their hat on and in the case of Kerrie Tibbey and her team at Goodwood Farm it’s $9million earning Group I winning sprinter Private Eye and while they wait with anticipation to offer his half-brother at Inglis Easter, they are being kept busy in the interim at Inglis Classic.

Foaled and raised at Goodwood Farm before being dispatched to the Adelaide Magic Millions in the care of Ambergate Farm, Private Eye caught the eye of Proven Thoroughbreds Jamie Walters, who shelled out $62,500 to secure the son of Al Maher and the rest is history.

Trained by Joe Pride, Private Eye scored his first Group I win in the 2021 ATC Epsom Handicap and has competed at the elite level ever since placing in the last two editions of The Everest with recent barrier trials suggesting the talented gelding is in for another good campaign during the autumn.

Goodwood Farm have taken eight yearlings to Inglis Classic, click here to see the draft with highlights below:
