Cinco Charlie filly hammers for $200K during F-T opener

June 29, 2020

A filly from the first crop of Spendthrift stallion Cinco Charlie brought a top bid of $200,000 during Monday’s session of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Two-Year-Olds in Training sale.

Consigned by Cary Frommer, agent, hip No. 80 went to Belladonna Racing LLC II. The bay filly is out of the Mineshaft mare Lantern, whose six foals are all winners, including the stakes-placed Lantiz.

Bred in Kentucky by Hartmut H. Malluche and Silesia Farm, the filly’s deep family traces back to her fourth dam, broodmare of the year Toll Booth, the dam of champion Plugged Nickle and the same family as Horse of the Year Harve de Grace and classic winner Tonalist.

Cinco Charlie, who stands for a fee of $5,000 S&N, is participating in Spendthrift’s renowned breeding program for freshman sires – the Safe Bet program – in 2020, which guarantees breeders a graded stakes-winning 2-year-old from his first crop this year or no stud fee will be owed in 2021 when the resulting foal is born.
