Wednesday, 7th August 2013

Darley's former Australian Champion 2YO Sepoy (Elusive Quality-Watchful, by Danehill) has sired his first foal, reports breednet.com.au. The occasion happened at Ian Smith's Edinburgh Park when broodmare Becerra (Al Maher) foaled down a filly at his northern NSW property. Becerra was among the 127 mares believed covered by Sepoy in his debut season last year. Reverse shuttler Sepoy retired to stud with 10 wins (including 2011's Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, Gr1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield, Gr1 Manikato Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes over 1200m at Flemington, Gr2 Caulfield Sprint over 1100m at Caulfield, Gr2 Danehill Stakes over 1200m at Flemington, Gr3 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Prelude over 1100m at Caulfield, Listed Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Preview over 1000m at Caulfield & Listed Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield, plus 2010's Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes over 1000m at Flemington) & a runner-up (in 2011's Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) from 14 starts for $3,880,000 earnings.
