With 7 top 3 finishes in their last 12 runners David and Coral Feek are looking froward to attending their first yearling sale for 2019 when they head to Sydney in February for the Inglis Classic Sale - commencing 9 February 2019.
‘Coral and I have enjoyed good success over the last few years with Inglis graduates and we are thrilled to be heading to the Classic Sale with good interest from exisiting and prospective clients. ’ Said David Feek
‘It doesn’t do you any harm at this time of year to have the stable racing consistently and Coral and I feel that we’re taking our horses to the races knowing they are going to be competitive. It certainly helps generate interest over the sales period’.
‘We find the Inglis Sales, in particular the Classic and Melbourne Premier, are good buying and the reality is with the Magic Millions averaging over $240,000 it is simply not feasible for Feek Racing to compete in that market. Coral and I are confident we can find value for money at the Inglis Sales and our record shows we have done so in previous years’.
‘Inglis Classic proved last year it was a strong catalogue and on paper it looks a good sale again in 2019’.
‘We encourage clients, current and prospective, to join us at Classic in Sydney and Premier in Melbourne as we look to build on our growing yard’.

The first quarter of 2019 isn’t just about the yearling sales as the stable continue to present runners across Victoria. Stony Creek on Wednesday saw two lightly raced horses in Dolly Mixture and Lady Jackio (Pic in red and Blue) go around in maiden class. ‘Dolly’ kicked off the meeting as a firm favourite in the small field, however after a costly start she found it difficult to fight off the second favourite before finishing second in what was another valiant performance. The daughter of Nadeem shows good promise after just four career starts, three of which have been this campaign and resulted in placing’s on each occasion. She looks ready to breakthrough soon with even luck.
‘Dollly was very sound at Stony Creek and with a bit more experience she should be winning soon. I think we’ll see a much more seasoned mare in the Spring, however if we can breakthrough this prep she’ll take plenty of confidence going in to her next campaign as a lightly raced 4yo mare’ Said David Feek from the track.
In Race 3 Feek Racing saddled up the 4yo mare Lady Jackio, having just her second career start as she stepped up to the mile after debuting at home over 1500m three weeks earlier. The daughter of Melbourne Cup winner Americain settled well back in the field of 8 as the leader strung the field out around the tight Stony Creek circuit. After taking a few strides to balance up from the 400m Lady Jackio hit the line strongly over the concluding stages to flash home from well back for a 2 length third, in what can only be described as a highly encouraging run.
‘Coral and I were pleased to see the mare finish off the way she did. She did more than enough on debut over 1500m and today we saw that experience start to take shape. We think we’ll have a nice mare with a bit more race experience’ Said Feek.
Both Stony Creek runners are enjoying a quiet few days to end their week before being David and Coral look at their options going forward.
The stable rounds out this week with Mr Zigmund, a horse David Feek describes as still quite immature, making his debut over 1400m at Cranbourne on Friday night before Miss Polanski kicks off next week with a likely start at Yarra Valley next Tuesday.
