Charlie Has Some Darlings
Written by Alan Porter 1 | Sep 25, 2008 |
With Eclipse Award winners in successive years, Indian Charlie is
staking a claim to join the stallion elite. He enjoyed an excellent Saturday on
September 20, with last year's champion 2-year-old filly Indian Blessing
defeating her elders in the Gallant Bloom Stakes (gr. II) and My Pal Charlie
winning the Super Derby (gr. II).
Indian Blessing, out of
the Flying Chevron mare Shameful, is rated A++
by TrueNicks. A++ is also the rating for My Pal Charlie, who is a brother to the
excellent sprinter Bwana Charlie, now a stallion at Journeyman Stud, in Ocala, Fla.
Overall, Indian Charlie
has 11 stakes winners this year, others including the brilliant turf sprinter
Mr. Nightlinger, and graded stakes scorer Indyanne.
