Midnight Diamond

Dime in February 2017

A few minutes before midnight on December 12, 2013, Silver Crescent welcomed her first son – a bay colt by the pure Polish sire Pilot (Fawor x Pipi).

Aurora Midnight Diamond was born bay and is greying. He has a small, odd-shaped star and a white coronet on his near hind leg.

Pictured at left is his sire, the great Pilot, who died in September 2016 at the age of 29.

After the birth of the Cressie’s colt, Pilot’s owner Owner Shirley Watts said: “I love this little colt, he looks so like his sire and I hope he does as well.  Many congratulations and best wishes for the future with him.”

Dime has two older half sisters, both pure Crabbet: Clouded Moon and Southern Star.

He is a very friendly young fellow and loves to show off in the paddock – and come for attention.
