Coal Front Gets First Mare in Foal


Coal Front | Sarah Andrew

Spendthrift Farm's multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire Coal Front (Stay Thirsty–Miner's Secret, by Mineshaft) had his first mare confirmed in foal. The Wildcat Heir mare Defying Gravity scanned in foal Mar. 10 for breeder Ken Doyen at Sparks View Farm in Paris, KY. She hails from the immediate family of multiple graded stakes winner and sire Too Much Bling.

Bought for $575,000 as an OBS April 2-year-old in 2016, Coal Front was named a 'TDN Rising Star' a year later at Keeneland and went on to win five stakes over his three racing seasons, including the GII Amsterdam S. and G2 Godolphin Mile. He is participating in Spendthrift's “Share The Upside” breeding program for a fee of $7,500, and breeders can earn a lifetime breeding right to him after producing one live foal and paying the stud fee.
