Group 1 New Zealand Oaks winner Midnight Oil has been purchased by Dean Fleming of Tyreel Stud.
Midnight Oil (4m Keeper – Gilded Light by Gilded Time) has raced just eight times for four wins including the G3 Lowland Stakes and G1 NZ Oaks at her last two starts. She heads to stud this season after failing to recover from an injury sustained not long after her Oaks win.
Midnight Oil (NZ) was raced by the Nineteenth Syndicate after failing to make a $20,000 reserve at the 2009 NZB Select yearling sale at Karaka. She is the first foal of a mare that hails from the family of G1 AJC and SAJC Oaks winner Our Tristalight (Sir Tristram).
Connections nominated her for the 2012 Magic Millions National Sale as part of the Evergreen Stud draft but she was withdrawn prior to sale.
