Real Impact Colts Impress At Warwick Farm Breeze Ups
Arrowfield have shown a great commitment to the Deep Impact sire line, so it is exciting to see Real Impact already making a big impression. In his first season of runners in Japan, Real Impact is currently sitting third on the first season sires premiership, and now his first Australian 2-year-olds are also getting off to a flying start.
Three colts by the son of Japan’s supersire Deep Impact breezed up at Warwick Farm last Friday for the 2019 Inglis Ready2Run Sale and were all notably impressive. Prepared by Damien Lane, Lot 99 Real Impact x Madison Park (pictured) recorded the fastest time of the morning and certainly caught the eye — stopping the clock at 10.17secs.
“I was very impressed today,’’ Lane said.
“The Real Impact has improved through the prep, so much so for him to be the fastest time today. It is a credit to his continuing maturity.”
Whilst the Madison Park colt ran what was to prove the fastest time of the morning, there were two other noteworthy performances by sons of Real Impact. Firstly, by Lot 124 Real Impact-Only Roses colt (10.23secs), presented by Blake Ryan Racing, when clocking the fifth fastest for the morning, and then Lot 113 Real Impact-Niagara Falls colt (10.52secs) from the stable of John Ramsey.

Real Impact will return to Australia next season, but in the interim Arrowfield has two other top class sons of Deep Impact standing in 2019.
Mikki Isle is covering his third season at a fee of $13,750 and has a stunning array of yearlings headed to the major sales in 2020. He was Champion sprinter/miler in Japan and his first progeny look very precocious. Arrowfield are also introducing this season the international Group 1 winner and superbly bred Real Steel at a fee of $16,500.
In addition to providing a Deep Impact outcross, Real Steal offers breeders the rare opportunity to access the bloodlines of the champion blue hen mare Miesque, the newcomer’s third-dam.
