Cinco Charlie Sold, to Stand in Texas

Cinco Charlie | Hodges
Grade III winner and promising young sire Cinco Charlie (Indian Charlie–Ten Halos, by Marquetry) has been purchased by Bob & Tyree Wolesensky's Leadem Farm and will relocate there for the 2022 breeding season after spending his first five seasons at Spendthrift Farm. Jay Goodwin orchestrated the deal.
“Texas racing is thriving and the breeding business is coming back,” said Goodwin. “Bob and Tyree approached me about finding a stallion that would fit Texas and I don't think we could have found a better one. Cinco Charlie was a brilliantly fast 2-year-old who won the Bashford Manor, was owned by Bill & Corinne Heiligbrodt and trained by Steve Asmussen, Texas Hall of Famers. This horse is Texas through and through. Cinco Charlie had the speed and precocity that Texas breeders want. Leadem Farm is an absolutely beautiful operation in the heart of Texas horse country and I'm sure that Cinco Charlie will have a long and successful career there. I want to thank Spendthrift Farm, particularly Eric Gustavson, Ned Toffey, Mark Toothaker and Bill Heiligbrodt for helping this transaction take place.”
Cinco Charlie won eight of his 18 career starts, for earnings of $608,920 with seven total stakes wins. He currently sits in the top 30 on the second-crop sire list and his top runners include the stakes-winning colt Huntsinger as well as Five Pics Please, who was second in the GIII Sweet Life S. at Santa Anita earlier this year. Cinco Charlie's second crop includes the stakes-placed Serape and the impressive recent maiden winner Saint Charles.
Tyree Wolesensky’s Leadem Farm in Gainesville, Texas, welcomes two new stallions for the 2020 breeding season with Aikenite and Leadem in Ken. Aikenite will stand for a fee of $3,000 and Leadem in Ken $2,000 as property of Tyree Wolesensky.
Aikenite, who stood last season at the famed Calumet Farm in Kentucky, brings in a race record that includes a pair of Grade 2 wins in the Commonwealth Stakes and the Churchill Downs Stakes. The son of Yes It’s True banked $875,385 in 24 starts while also earning placings in six other graded stakes, three of them at the Grade 1 level.
Through mid-October, Aikenite has sired the earners of more than $1.2 million with four stakes horses, including multiple graded stakes-placed Pony Up. Aikenite is out of a Saint Ballado mare.
The versatile Leadem in Ken will stand his first season at stud after a career on the track that included 15 wins and earnings of $445,203 in 40 starts. A winner going long and short and on the dirt and turf, the son of Sky Mesa earned his first stakes win at age 4 and then rounded out his resume with stakes wins at age 8 and 9, including in his final career start in the Stonerside Sprint Stakes this past January at Sam Houston Race Park.
Bred by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, Leadem in Ken is out of the Catienus mare Last Kitten, whose dam Kitten’s First produced multiple Grade 1 winners Precious Kitten and Kitten’s Joy, the latter being a champion grass horse and leading sire.
Tyree and Bob Wolesensky are excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Texas breeding and racing industry and to stand two very versatile and durable stallions who had successful racing careers that spanned several seasons.
