Adios Charlie scores in Belmont’s Jerome Stakes

Robert I. Sahn and Stanley M. Hough’s Adios Charlie jumped straight from a maiden victory to the $150, 000 Jerome Stakes (G2) at Belmont on Saturday, but the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Indian Charlie handled it with ease, scoring his first stakes win by 2-1/2 lengths. Sold for $400,000 by Eisaman Equine, Agent, at the 2010 OBS March Sale, he’s now 3-2-1-0 and has earned $134,040.

Joseph Baldesarra & Partners’ Wildcat Marie stepped into stakes company for the first time in Woodbine’s $162,933 Whimsical Stakes (G3) on Saturday and came home a winner by a length and a quarter. It was the first start of the year for the 4-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Wildcat Heir, a three time veteran of the OBS sales ring. Sold first by Journeyman Bloodstock, Agent at the 2007 Fall Mixed Sale, she was consigned by All Dreams Equine, Agent, to the 2008 August Sale before bringing $50,000 when purchased out of the Blue River Bloodstock consignment at the 2009 April Sale. The win, her third straight, gives her a 10-6-0-4 record and earnings of $257,155.

Frank Carl Calabrese’s Romacaca picked up her fourth stakes victory on Sunday at Gulfstream, taking the $75,000 Capital Request Florida Thoroughbred Charities Stakes by a length and a quarter. That’s two straight wins for the 5-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Running Stag, now 20-9-4-2 with earnings of $399,592. Consigned by Cashel Stud, Agent, she went through the ring at both the 2007 August and 2008 April OBS Sales.
