Triple Crown Win with Turangga Purchase
Tara Madgwick - Friday, 21 April 2017
Scoring a debut win at Canberra on Friday in the Triple Crown colours was two year-old Sepoy gelding Midnight Soldier, an $80,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Turangga Farm draft.

Midnight Soldier as a yearlingFirst up over 1300 metres and taking on older rivals made it no easy task, but Midnight Soldier travelled up on the pace and fought on doggedly to win by half a head.

A three-quarter brother-in-blood to stakes-placed War Hero, Midnight Soldier is the first winner for Midnight Fantasy, a half-sister to stakes-winner Tampiko from Group I winner Ancient Song.

Midnight Fantasy has a weanling filly by Sepoy and is in foal to Lonhro's Group I winner Exosphere.

Midnight Soldier is the 28th winner this season for Darley's Sepoy, whose service fee has dropped sharply again this year to $16,500.
