Freshman sire My Pal Charlie, record-setting winner of Super Derby XXIX (G2), sired his first winner when 2-year-old My Charlie Ray captured his debut in a $30,000 Maiden Special Weight race at Evangeline Downs Thursday, July 25.

Trained by Bret Calhoun, My Charlie Ray’s win in the five-furlong heat earned $18,000 for his owner Chuck Ogle, who also bred the bay gelding in Louisiana out of the Fusaichi Pegasus mare Pegasus Rose. My Charlie Ray was also his sire’s first foal when he was born on Jan. 11, 2011 out of the first crop of My Pal Charlie.

By Indian Charlie, My Pal Charlie established a new stakes record winning the Super Derby (G2), running 1 1/8 miles in 1:48.36 at Louisiana Downs. He is the most accomplished performer from the Halo mare Shahalo, a multiple graded stakes-producer. My Pal Charlie is a full-brother to Bwana Charlie, G2 winner and G1 sire, and half-brother to Bwana Bull (G3).

My Pal Charlie retired to Elite Thoroughbreds in Folsom, La. in 2010 with earnings of $762,519. He just completed the 2013 breeding season at Elite for a fee of $3,000 stands and nurses. My Pal Charlie is owned by Spendthrift Farm, and is a participant in Spendthrift’s Breed Secure program for breeders.
