Minnesota-Bred Charlie's Penny Upsets the Silverbulletday


Charlie's Penny | Hodges

A dominant debut winner on the Arlington synthetic Sept. 17, Charlie's Penny was fourth to Souper Sensational next out in Woodbine's Glorious Song S. a month later. Capturing an optional claimer on the dirt at Churchill Nov. 28, she was third in this venue's six-panel Letelier Memorial S. Dec. 19.

Stretching out to two turns for the first time here, Charlie's Penny was away alertly and established herself in third, running off the fence through glacial early fractions. Three wide exiting the bend, the gray motored clear in the lane to register a decisive victory in the Silverbulletday.

Charlie's Penny is the fourth stakes winner for her sire Race Day and the second out of her dam, following Mom's Red Lipstick. The winner is the second foal out of Sweet Lorraine, who has since produced a juvenile filly by Munnings and was bred back to Munnings this spring.
