Another Smart Deep Field Winner
Tara Madgwick - Sunday August 11
Deep Field racked up his 23rd first crop winner at Bendigo on Sunday when three year-old filly Chivargo scored a determined victory on heavy ground.

Chivargo as a yearlingMidfield on debt last month, she made light of the testing conditions to win the 1300 metre maiden by a long neck.

Trained by Matt Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Chivargo runs in the colours of super successful Victorian owner breeders Barrie and Midge Griffiths and was a $110,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the draft of Blue Gum Farm.

She is the first winner for Western Gem, a half-sister by Charge Forward to Group II winner Western Jewel and stakes-winner Western Blaze.

Western Gem was one of 246 mares covered last spring by Deep Field, who stands at Newgate at a fee of $44,000.
