Deep Field X Sticky Fingers

Sire: Deep Field

Dam: Sticky Fingers

Colour: Chestnut

Gender: Filly

Age: 1 year old

Foaled: Sep 11th, 2016

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

DEEP FIELD was an unbelievably quick sprinter, breaking a course record at Canterbury over 1100m, clocking 1:03.14 when winning at his third start before going onto win at Group 2 level at only his fifth outing and placing at Group 1 level in the Lightning Stakes soon after.

DEEP FIELD showed all the brilliance of his Group 1-winning sire NORTHERN METEOR during his time on the track and the class of his Caulfield Guineas-winning brother SHOOTING TO WIN while the stallion is closely related to super racehorses DANEWIN, COMMANDS, OCTAGONAL and MOUAWAD among other Group 1 winners.

DEEP FIELD has stamped his stock with a presence that has caught the imagination of buyers from all over the world as his stock has fetched as much as $675,000 in their first season in the auction ring, but Ellerton Zahra Racing secured a bargain in the form of this athletic filly.

By the unraced DUKE OF MARMALADE mare Sticky Fingers, a daughter of the Group 3-placed Money Begets Money, who has produced stakes winner MOQUEEN while she’s also from the same family as CRITERION, the winner of four Group 1 races and more than $7.3 million on the track.
