Open Til Midnight (MIDNIGHT STORM) shines in Aqueduct turf MdSpWt

Open Til Midnight weaved through horses in the stretch to get his maiden special weight win by a neck on the Aqueduct turf course on Nov. 18, the eighth First-Crop winner for Midnight Storm WATCH RACE.

The Taylor Made stallion was represented by his first graded stakes winner on Nov. 7 went Senor Testaferro won the Clasico Angel T. Cordero Jr. S. (G2).

Open Til Midnight, who was several lengths off the pace for most of the 1 1/16-mile trip, began to make up ground on the turn, then had to swing five-wide into the stretch for clear running room. He battled with Your Mission in the final stages to secure the win in 1:44.71 on a firm turf course.

The dark bay colt is owned by Anthony Perri and was bred by CJC Racing LLC.
