Midnight Hawk to Rising Sun Farm in Jamaica By Ollie O'Donoghue 1:06PM 14 FEB 2017
MIDNIGHT HAWK, winner of the Sham Stakes at Santa Anita, has been retired to stand at Rising Sun Farm in Jamaica in a deal brokered by Chad Schumer of Schumer Bloodstock.
Midnight Hawk won the Grade 3 contest on just his second career start, having run out the six and a quarter length winner of his debut, a maiden at Hollywood Park.
He went on to compile a series of creditable efforts in Graded stakes company for Bob Baffert, notably when placed in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes, in which he was second to none other than California Chrome.
Midnight Hawk also ran a neck second to Race Day in the Grade 3 Razorback Handicap as a four-year-old.
He won five races from 17 starts from two to five.
A son of Midnight Lute, Midnight Hawk is a half-brother to four winners including Listed scorer Mister Marv. He is out of the Grade 1-placed Miss Wineshine, by Wolf Power.
Midnight Hawk will stand alongside the Grade 1-placed Rising Moon at Rising Sun Farm.
