18 for Deep Field

Newgate Farm-based sire Deep Field (NorthernMeteor) was provided with his 18th first crop
winner yesterday courtesy of Big Parade’s (2 c ex Crystal Rock by Fastnet Rock) impressive debut
victory in a two-year-old handicap (1250m) at Taree. The Clare Cunningham-trained juvenile
drew clear of Rumpshaker (Stratum) to score by two and a quarter lengths, with another lengthback to Dodecanese (Excelebration) in third.

Deep Field trails only Lyndhurst Stud Farm-based sire Better Than Ready (More Than Ready), who
has sired 19 first crop winners, in the leading first
season sires by the metric of winners. Without
Fear (Baldric), who sired 30 individual first crop
juvenile winners in 1975/76, holds the record
