Bred by Toby Keith’s Dream Walkin’ Farm, the colt is out of Keith’s homebred and home-raced mare Peeker, who was stakes placed as a 2-year-old on the racetrack.
“The colt is very strong with plenty of leg. His angles are where you like to see them, and we are very happy with him,” said Jay Ted Neel, general manager of Millennium Farms.
By Indian Charlie, Cinco Charlie was a leading 2-year-old of his crop, capturing his debut at Churchill before winning the Bashford Manor S. (G3) in his second start. He went on to win four stakes races at four different racetracks as a juvenile.
Cinco Charlie carried that momentum into his 3-year-old season by stretching out to win the one-mile Riley Allison S. at Sunland. He returned to Churchill to capture the William Walker S. and was a close runner-up in the Woody Stephens S. (G2) on Belmont Stakes Day. At four, Cinco Charlie won the Duncan Kenner S. at Fair Grounds, earning his seventh career stakes win – the most ever by a son of Indian Charlie. He retired to Spendthrift in 2017 with earnings of $608,920.
Cinco Charlie is out of the stakes-placed Marquetry mare Ten Halos, a half-sister to Graded stakes winners My Pal Charlie, Bwana Charlie, and Bwana Bull. He is set to stand his second season at Spendthrift in 2018 for a fee of $5,000 S&N.
