The 10-year-old Haafhd mare Midnight Flower is offered for sale at £4,000 ONO plus VAT. She is in foal to sire of the moment Adaay, with a last scan date of the 9th of March.
A smart sprinter when in training with David Simcock, Midnight Flower won a six-furlong maiden at Wolverhampton as a two-year-old and two handicaps on the July Course at Newmarket at three. She was an extremely consistent performer and reached an official rating of 95 by the end of her career.
She also boasts a very smart pedigree. She is one of five winners out of the Danehill mare Takawiri, who was in turn out of the Listed-placed Lake Victoria. Takawiri is therefore a sibling of the Grp-2 placed two-year-old Ascot Day, whilst further near relations include the Listed winners Ice Love and Corinthia Knight.
It is also worth commenting on Midnight Flower's sire Haafhd's developing record as a broodmare sire. The long list of smart animals he is responsible for as damsire includes the Grp-1 winning sprinter Quiet Reflection, the Grp-1 winning St Leger runner-up Ventura Storm, the 2019 Derby second Madhmoon and the Grp-2 Superlative Stakes winner Mystery Power.
So far Midnight Flower has produced three foals in her own right, including the placed sprinters Rio Santos and Brahma Kamal, and Irish Breeze, who was twice a winner abroad as a two-year-old last year. The scintillating start that Adaay has made to his stallion career hints that Midnight Flower's unborn foal may be her best yet.
At the time of writing, the Whitsbury Manor Stud-based sire, who stands for a covering fee of £5,000, has produced seven individual first crop winners. These include Twaasol, who followed in the hoofsteps of Pinatubo by winning the Woodcote Stakes on Derby Day earlier this month. The sire's progeny have fetched up to 155,000gns at the recent round of breeze-up sales, as his influence and popularity continue to grow.
Midnight Flower provides breeders with an excellent opportunity to purchase a talented and well-related mare at a competitive price - with a confirmed cover to one of the most popular sires of the moment thrown in for good measure. Please get in touch for more information.
