He is well represented in the Magic Millions (the most market driven of the sales) happening next week with 18 entries and is one of the few stallions whose 2020 stud fee was maintained at the 2019 level. His offspring have shown good ability on the track, he has had 4 to race so far, with 1 winner and the other 3  running a place at their only start and is 7th on the first year sires table with those in front  having many more runners to date.
For the background on  Winning Rupert  have a read of his stallion page on Newgate Farm’s website:
How did we end up with the colt? Todd Lichti (who bred Miss Leonidas and was named the Victorian small breeder of the year for a second time in 2020) selected his mum based on her genetics, see below his comments at the time we purchased the mare with the colt in utero: "I do think Winning Rupert could be a nice, sneaky bet at stud and has gotten large books of mares in his first two seasons (should have over 100 foals on the ground each year from them).  He could’ve been anything had he not gotten injured and sustained speed of this kind is not often seen." "Her page reminds me a little bit of Miss Leonidas’s mum’s page when I bought her in foal … well related, had produced sound horses/winners that raced over a number of years without producing anything of real note.  The stallions Startling Aura has visited prior to Winning Rupert all (Artie Schiller, Bel Esprit, Star Witness) only cover one line significantly that I look for while Any Given Saturday covers multiple but still wasn’t successful here (very few shuttle stallions are).  I consider this her best mating by a long way. I’ve been keeping my eye out for the right mare IFT Winning Rupert.  Pedigree strong enough to give us a chance of getting a nice horse."
Based on breeding, he will be a speed horse and potentially race as a 2yr old.
