Horse Description:

The first-season DEEP FIELD stock has given the brilliant racetrack performer an outstanding start to his stud career and Ellerton Zahra Racing has continued to secure the sire’s progeny at the Inglis Classic Sale.

DEEP FIELD possessed scintillating speed in his racing career, which produced five wins, including one memorable performance at Group 2 level down the Flemington straight and a victory in course record time for the 1100m at Canterbury.

DEEP FIELD has already had three winners and three stakes performers at the half-way point his first season, including Hawker Hurricane, who won the Magic Millions Clockwise Classic at Ballarat on debut before he ran a solid third in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude at Caulfield. Deep Field’s son Spaceboy wasn’t far away from the Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Exhilarates in a Listed race at Wyong.

COSMIC FORCE became the first Stakes winner for Deep Field winning the G3 Pago Pago Stakes.Cosmic Force is bred on the same DEEP FIELD / COMMANDS cross as this filly.

This outstanding type in the second foal out of the 1300m winner Demure who first to race has placed this season. The filly comes from a terrific international filly that has produced stakes winners in Australia, France, Ireland and Sweden.
