Uptowncharlybrown Stud LLC (UTCB) is a thoroughbred horseracing limited partnership syndicate that’s been around since 1999. We started out with just one horse and ten partners. Winning races is very hard to do; but, we won with our very first two starters and have never looked back since.
Since then, UTCB Stud, simply by word of mouth, has grown to over 70 horses, greater than 25 individual partnerships; including stallions, broodmares, weanlings, yearlings, and 2YO’s with over 400 partners. We specialize in affordable thoroughbred horseracing “limited partnerships” in which you can get involved in all the fun & excitement of thoroughbred racing for less than a thousand dollars. The term “limited partnership” means you do not share in any personal liability.
Multiple Stake winning broodmare R Betty Graybull
We race predominantly at Parx, with trips to Belmont Park, Aqueduct, Gulfstream Park, Saratoga, Laurel, Pimlico, Monmouth Park & Delaware Park just to name a few racetracks.
The reason Parx is because the majority of our horses are sired by our leading Third Crop Sire in Pennsylvania, as well as the entire Mid Atlantic region, in the red hot Uptowncharlybrown. Charly as he’s affectionately known produced 80% winners in 2017 with each horse earning greater than $55,000. From a crop of 10 horses three (30%) have already surpassed $100,000 in career earnings. That’s how powerful the Pennsylvania Statebred program is as it offers the best statebred program in the land bar none!
UTCB Stud is NOT a claiming stable. Instead, we offer thoroughbred partnerships in unraced 2YO’s in training. Owning a thoroughbred racehorse is not only very exciting; but hey, you just never know, as you may just find that next special champion.

Think it can’t happen? Think again as it happened to us with Uptowncharlybrown who won his first two races in devastating fashion and was prominently mentioned on the Triple Crown trail. It also happened with the NY Bred filly, R Betty Graybull. Both were multiple stakes winners. “Charly” was graded stakes placed.
Our history includes purchasing an unraced 2YO filly in R Betty Graybull for $60,000. All she did was earn over $436,000 including winning multiple stakes. She became the second highest Holy Bull filly earner ever. Today she’s a successful broodmare.

We were blessed to buy an unraced 2YO colt in Uptowncharlybrown in 2009 for $57,000. He took us on the magic carpet ride of a lifetime known as the Triple Crown. It culminated with his racing in the Grade One $1,000,000 Belmont Stakes. Today “Charly” stands as a stallion at Diamond B Farm in PA.
Back in 2012 when we made the decision to retire Charly, in our wildest dreams we never imagined he would turn out to be the leading Third Crop stallion in Pennsylvania, but he has. By the way the purses have increased so much in PA that in 2017 the Pennsylvania Derby was upgraded to a Grade One Stake. Each year Pennsylvania has given out over $30,000,000 dollars in annual racing bonuses and breeders awards. The last two 3YO filly Eclipse Award winners have both been Pennsylvania Breds.
Three of Charly’s first four starters from his initial 2016 freshman crop won in convincing fashion by margins of 10, 11 1/2 & 22 1/2 lengths which is unprecedented.
Charly has been very well received by the PA racing community. Pennsylvania has the best State Bred program

in the nation. PA Breds race for 40% bonuses greater than the stated purse. A MSW (Maiden Special Weight) purse in open company is currently $65,000. There’s also a 40% PA breeding bonus on top of that. Is it any wonder that PA Bred’s are in such high demand.

Please note, when investing in thoroughbred racehorses, we’re dealing with living breathing creatures entrusted into our care. There’s never any guarantees as investing in thoroughbred racehorses always involves a high degree of risk. There’s always a chance of striking out; however, when you swing away for the fences, you may also just get lucky and knock one out of the park.
We do hope you find that special champion as you just never know? This is why royalty and celebrities are all so excited to be part of the thoroughbred racing world known as The Sport Of Kings!
For as little as $825 you too can become a part owner in a thoroughbred racehorse. You and your family can

We cordially invite you to come back stage to visit the barn to watch your horse train. Also please join us in the paddock on raceday! When your horse wins, you’ll swear you’re walking on air. You, your family, and friends will proudly walk into the Winner’s Circle for that special Win photograph.

Everything at UTCB Stud is included “soup to nuts” without any hidden surprises. We’re dedicated to finding that special champion. But, more importantly, we treat all our partners as royalty. We offer first class service with email communication in our industry that is second to none.
The economics of racing are such, that it costs the same, approximately $50,000 annually in training expenses to feed a low level claiming horse which is exactly the same as it does for the Kentucky Derby winner. But, with claimers, there’s rarely ever any upside; and eventually, the economics of the sport will swallow an owner up whole.
That’s why at UTCB Stud we prefer to swing away for the fences offering promising 2YO’s in training. By sharing the expenses with your fellow racing enthusiasts, the cost of purchasing into the horse, as well as training expenses, are kept down to an affordable bare minimum.
For example, if you buy a minimal share at $825 it includes the first six months of training expenses. Thereafter, you’re only billed $200 in training expenses every six months (not monthly) until your horse starts paying his way!
