2019  filly by Charming Thought (GB) ex Mary Read (GB) (Bahamian Bounty (GB))

Out of the classy race mare, this is a lovely filly with a strong family behind her. Mary Read was placed in 6 of her 8 starts, including winning twice and finishing second in the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, retiring as a 2-year-old rated 103. She is the granddam of Group 2 winner and all-weather star Kachy, and her half-sister produced another star in Beat The Bank. Our filly’s 3-year-old full sister comes with a big reputation after her first season in training so we hope she will show the same promise! The sire Charming Thought is a well-bred Group 1 winner who had his first crop of runners on the track last year, including the promising Charterhouse, and a good strike rate of winners to runners. Ed is pleased with how this filly is progressing at home and she could make her debut before the end of the summer.
