We seem to be endowed with fabulous horses on wonderful winning streaks at the moment. Deserving of mention here is the super colt Sepoy (Elusive Quality - Watchful). He's a Darley homebred. I actually photographed him as a weanling, much to my delight when I discovered the images following his Blue Diamond Stakes victory. He's only been defeated once, when narrowly beaten by Smart Missile as a 2yo in the 2011 Todman Stakes, which came in between his G1 victories in the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper Stakes. This spring he's gone undefeated, and yesterday he recorded his 2nd G1 for the 2011-2011 Racing Season, and his 4th overall, in the G1 Coolmore Ascot Vale Stakes.
The Darley colt has been up for a long time, and tackled the older horses at his last 2 starts, one of which was the G1 Manikato Stakes, and had to do it the hard way, yet under pressure he still found enough to outlast Foxwedge to win by a head. Sepoy is trained by Peter Snowden and ridden by Kerrin McEvoy.
