Charming first foal for Middle Park hero

Bearstone Stud welcomes the arrival of cracking filly by G1 winner Charming Thought

Charming Thought has welcomed the arrival of his first reported foal, with the birth of a belting filly at Bearstone Stud on Sunday, 21 January.

The filly (pictured at 24 hours old) is out of the Namid mare Albertine Rose, a winner herself at two and who was also placed in the Listed Boshra Sham Stakes at Newmarket during her juvenile campaign.

A homebred for Gary and Lesley Middlebrook, Albertine Rose has produced three winners to date.

Charming Thought was a 625,000-guinea yearling who beat both 2,000 Guineas third Ivawood and future Champion sprinter Muhaarar to land the G1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket. He hails from a family packed with Black Type winners and covered a quality book of mares during his first season at stud.

Charming Thought stands at Dalham Hall Stud at a fee of £6,000, October 1, Special Live Foal and is available for breeders to view by appointment. To arrange a viewing, or to discuss sending your mare to him, contact the Nominations team on +44 1638 730070.
