In also being the Champion 2YO for 2020-21, it was jockey Tommy Berry who stated “he was just a superior 2yo, and I was as confident as I’ve ever been in the Golden Slipper.”
As an ‘elite talent with an electric turn of foot,’ Stay Inside achieved a 105.7 WFA performance rating, making him one of the most dominating Group 1 Golden Slipper winners.
By holding-off the Rosehill Guineas winner Anamoe by 1.8 lengths in the Golden Slipper, run in 1-10.76 on a Soft 7 track, he had previously taken out the Pierro Plate of 1100m by 4 lengths.
Stay Inside is the first crop of Newgate’s very own Extreme Choice, the Blue Diamond and AJ Moir Stakes winner who was crowned Champion Sire of 2yo’s and Champion First Crop Sire.
With Newgate Farm and China Horse Club syndicating Stay Inside for stud duties following the Golden Slipper, he was a $200,000 graduate of the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
Purchased by Freedman Brothers-Rick Connolly Bloodstock from Newgate, who had pin-hooked him for $60,000 from breeder Kingstar Farm at the 2019 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.

Snitzel’s super-fast son Wild Ruler is the second of Newgate’s four new sires this season and was a high-class winner at 2, 3 and 4 years including the weight-for-age AJ Moir Stakes.
With the 1000m AJ Moir featuring amongst so many sires, Wild Ruler also took out the Arrowfield Sprint of 1200m, the now sire-making Roman Consul Stakes and Inglis Nursery on debut.
Newgate says ‘Wild Ruler retires with almost identical credentials to champion First Season Sire Russian Revolution,’ who also won the Roman Consul, as did Fastnet Rock, Zoustar.
“I think he could be one of the better sprinters we’ve ever had,” said co-trainer Peter Snowden, with jockey James McDonald adding “he’s the real deal now and he’s just matured so much.”
“He’s a pleasure to do anything with, he’s relaxing well, has an amazing turn of foot,” with Wild Ruler being a bay, standing 16.1hh and winning 6 of his 15 starts and over $2.6m in prizemoney.
