Cigar Flick (Churchill) wins at Randwick

Cigar Flick Salutes Again

Talented filly Cigar Flick (3f Churchill x Palmateer, by Fastnet Rock) has hit a nice vein of form at the back end of the season and scored another stylish win at Eagle Farm on Saturday taking out the $150,000 Tatts Members Plate (1200m).

Carrying the famed Ingham cerise as does her close relation Fangirl, Cigar Flick made it two wins from her last three starts when cruising home for Tommy Berry to win by a length and a half.

Trained by Chris Waller, Cigar Flick has four wins from 16 starts with prizemoney topping $444,000.

A homebred for the Ingham family, Cigar Flick was foaled, raised and educated at Coolmore and is the first foal of Palmateer, a metro winning half-sister by Fastnet Rock to $7.8million million earning triple Group I winner Fangirl from stakes-winner Little Surfer Girl.

Her third dam is triple Group I winner Special Harmony, who won the VRC Oaks, Thousand Guineas and Arrowfield Stud Stakes among her 10 wins, so Cigar Flick will be a valuable addition to the Ingham family’s broodmare band when she retires.

Palmateer is now in foal to Justify.

Cigar Flick is one 43 Australian winners this season for Churchill, whose progeny have earned over $4million in Australia since August 1 and they include Group I winner Attrition, plus stakes-winners More Felons, First Immortal and Imperialist.
