Multiple graded stakes winner and freshman sire Flashpoint got his first winner on May 19 when Flashy Coop won a maiden race at the Hipodromo de las Americas in Mexico City. Bred in Louisiana by Gerard Meloncon, Flashy Coop sold from the consignment of 5 B Farm at the Equine Sales Company Yearling Sale in 2016.

Flashpoint, a son of multiple Grade 1 winner Pomeroy, won the Hutcheson Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park and Jersey Shore Stakes (G3) at Monmouth Park as a 3-year-old and then won or placed in four more stakes as a 5-year-old.

He stands at Le Mesa Stallion in Carencro, Louisiana, as property of Spendthrift Stallions LLC.
