Aristocratic Miss Another Star for Foxwedge

Aristocratic Miss Another Star for Foxwedge

Newgate has gone from strength to strength over the last few years with strong performances by it’s stallions in the sales ring and on the racetrack. Newgate Farm was founded by Henry Field in 2010 with only a handful of mares on a 250 acre leased property. Today, Newgate is one of the leading farms in Australia encompassing 1,700 acres of prime Hunter Valley land. With a foundation based upon quality bloodstock and quality people, Newgate has flourished.

The latest star for the farm is Aristocratic Miss, a talented daughter of Foxwedge was frustratingly close to a stakes win last season as a 2yo, but with this commanding victory at Geelong on Tuesday has shown she is ready to be right in the thick of spring carnival racing.

The Tony McEvoy trained Aristocratic Miss was a red hot favourite for her return in the 1300 metre maiden and never looked in danger of defeat.

She travelled smoothly in fifth position for Luke Currie and when asked to accelerate down the straight quickly dropped her overmatched rivals and forged clear for a four length win.

A $65,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Grange Thoroughbreds draft for McEvoy Mitchell Racing, Aristocratic Miss had been stakes-placed four times previously last season so was well overdue to break the ice and can go forward swiftly with this maiden victory under her belt.

Bred by Henry Field and partners at Newgate Farm, Aristocractic Miss was sold originally by Newgate as a weanling at the Magic Millions National Sale fetching $25,000 when pinhooked by Gary Mudgway.

She is the best of eight winners from top producer and stakes-winner Golden Pedigree, a half-sister to the dam of Group I winner The Verminator.

Aristocratic Miss looks a great chance of giving her sire Foxwedge another stakes-winner in the new season, the Group I winning son of Fastnet Rock standing at a fee of $22,000 at Newgate Farm this spring.

About Newgate

Within a few short years, Newgate has become a major force within the Australasian Thoroughbred Industry. Newgate established a stallion division in 2012, which has grown exponentially since the acquisition of the high-class Group 1 winning sprinter Foxwedge. In 2013 Newgate purchased one of the finest properties in the Hunter Valley, the historic Brooklyn Lodge Stud, which has already produced Golden Slipper winners, Classic winners, and Cup winners among countless others.

Newgate also ranks among the top consignors at major Australian auctions having a record of producing high priced, quality yearlings that go on to perform on the racetrack.
