Sepoy & Hallowed Crown stay in Australia

Sepoy and Hallowed Crown did not made a return journey to the northern hemisphere this year, despite being included in Darley’s European roster for 2018.

Sepoy had been slated to stand at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket at a fee of £8,000, while Hallowed Crown was due to cover mares at a fee of €5,000 at Kildangan Stud in County Kildare.

Sepoy’s oldest crop conceived in Britain are four-year-olds and they include six stakes winners headed by German 1,000 Guineas heroine Unforgetable Filly and Group 3 scorers Dabyah and Kilmah.

The best of his Australian stock has been G1 Flight Stakes winner Alizee.

“We have a hugely exciting new intake of Group 1 winners for our rosters at Darley,” Sam Bullard said.  “We felt that as Sepoy and Hallowed Crown had similar profiles to some of the newcomers, we didn’t want to dilute the quality of any of the stallions’ books.”
