Uptowncharlybrown is a stakes winner and multiple Graded Stakes placed as he competed with the best of his generation while racing long at classic distances, or short sprinting on multiple surfaces, namely dirt, turf, poly, or slop. He was trained by the late Alan Seewald who unfortunately died on April 12, 2010 while Uptowncharlybrown was on the Triple Crown trail. "Charly" as he's affectionately known was then transferred to the barn of a new trainer where he suffered an eventful trip in the Grade I Belmont Stakes when his saddled slipped. As a result, he was unable to be ridden, yet only lost the Belmont Stakes by 3 lengths. Immediately after the wire, Charly was swung wide and proceeded to gallop out far past the field. Charly suffered an injury in the Belmont Stakes and was away for over a year. When he returned in his first start off the lay off, he finished second to Tapizar who later that year captured the Grade One Breeders Cup Mile. In that same race, Charly beat Boys of Tosconova, who had finished second to Uncle Mo in the Grade One Breeders Cup Juvenile.
In 2012 Charly was retired to stand at stud. From his first three small crops he's already become one of Pennsylvania's and the MidAtlantic region most sought after stallions. He was bred to a record 60 broodmares in 2018. He's the #1 stallion in all of North America at moving up his broodmares. Charly enjoys an AEI (Average Earnings Index) of 2.04. That figure places him among the elite stallions in NA such as Tapit, War Front, etc. What's even more remarkable is that Charly only sports a CI (Comparable Index) of only 0.84. This means... that absolutely no other stallion in all of North America has a better ratio in moving their mares up than does Uptowncharlybrown!
When selecting a stallion for your mare you should always research the AEI to CI ratio as there's no better barometer for success in the breeding shed. Simply put Uptowncharlybrown moves mares up BIG TIME as there's no other way to say it! Charly was the leading second-crop sire in Pennsylvania in 2017. In 2018 he's run away with the title again as he's the leading third-crop sire too. He's also the second leading third-crop sire in the MidAtlantic region by a wide margin despite having the fewest runners. So far in just 3 years standing at stud, he's won with an unbelievable 69% of his starters/runners. Greater than 25% of those winners turned out to be stakes horses. His average earnings per foal is just a tad under $75,000. Far and away, in all of the MidAtlantic region, Charly enjoys the highest percentage of winners, stakes performers, and highest average earnings per starter! No other stallion even comes close!
Charly's produced five $100,000 plus earners; two are already well over $200,000. He had a Graded Stake winner in 3YO filly Dixie Serenade who's earned $296,750 in her 13 race short career. Dixie Serenade recently went thru the prestigious Fasig-Tipton November Sale auction ring as HIP #185, where a bid of $425,000 was rejected. Midtowncharlybrown is multiple stakes placed and a winner of 7 races so far. He was voted by the PTHA as Pennsylvania's 3YO of the Year in 2017 and has earned $219,068 in his illustrious career. Wait For It is stakes placed and has already earned $157,560. Charlybrown's Rose is also stakes placed and has earned $145,084. Juvenile Grandma Gertie winner of $43,800 won her debut impressively by 7 lengths at first asking and recently competed at Saratoga in the Grade 2 Adirondack Stakes. Midnightcharly the full brother to Midtowncharlybrown won his debut, has earned $58,520 in his first three races while finishing second each time in two allowance races. Juvenile Motowncharlybrown $19,530 finished second to 2019 Triple Crown contender Maximus Mischief in his debut.
