Equiano ex Penny Drops – Bay Colt (GB)

2018 Bay colt by Equiano (FR) ex Penny Drops (GB) (Invincible Spirit (IRE))

Owner KVT II

This colt is by the dual King’s Stand (Group 1) winner Equiano who was trained by Barry Hills. Equiano has made up into a useful stallion since through the likes of multiple Group 1 winner, The Tin Man, as well as Strath Burn and Equilateral who have both been trained by Charlie. It is indeed a sire line in which the Hills’ Faringdon Place has become hugely adept with – not least via Equiano’s paternal half–brother, Dark Angel (by Acclamation), who also won at Group 1 level before establishing himself as one of the best sires around.
The dam, Penny Drops, was a high class mare herself, gaining black type on numerous occasions for William Haggas. Her first foal, a two-year-old named Badri (a son of Dark Angel), is in training with Charlie Hills and is well-regarded. Penny Drops is a daughter of another black type mare in Penny Cross, herself a half-sister to the Celebration Mile (Group 2) winner, Priors lodge.
We bought this colt at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale which makes him eligible for the £250,000 Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes. He is also eligible for the Plus10 Bonus. Charlie Hills loved this colt at ‘Donny’ and will train him which is exciting given all the family connection to the pedigree.

Charlie Hills
