Silver Charm has not been as dazzling a sire as he was a racehorse. Still, the son of Silver Buck is proving he can produce top-notch runners, such as Rampart Handicap (gr. II) winner Spring Waltz. The 4-year-old filly is apparently drawing her racing prowess from the same genetic well as her sire -- inbreeding to the great mare La Troienne.
Silver Buck, a grade I winner and sire of champion and dual classic winner Silver Charm, was euthanized Oct. 4 because of complications from the infirmities of old age.
Everything went right for front-running Classic Endeavor, the former claimer who won Saturday's $112,100 Queen's County Handicap (gr. III) at Aqueduct for his fifth straight victory.
