The team of JS Bloodstock and Tom Clover appear to have unearthed a gem in the form of the two year old colt by Sepoy. The lightly raced juvenile has produced three strong performances from three runs, never finishing out of the placings. Soldierpoy caught the eye with an impressive run on his debut finishing just behind the winner, setting himself up smartly to go one better next time out. He then went on to produce a gallant run in the famous Newbury Super Sprint and outran his odds to produce a fast finishing third.
Purchased for just £7,000 at the Tattersalls Ascot yearling sale last year, Soldierpoy has already amassed £22,000 in prize money and looks set for an exciting autumn campaign.
We would like to wish Tom and the Shimplingthorne Syndicate every success for the rest of the season.
