The name says it all with Uptowncharlybrown Stud: the operation built upon, and geared toward continuing, the success of veteran Pennsylvania sire Uptowncharlybrown.

Through the first four months of 2023, the plan has worked as well as any in the state, with the operation leading the way by total Pennsylvania Breeding Fund awards, totaling $182,856. Northview Stallion Station was second, with $119,365.

That figure combines both breeder’s incentives and stallion owner awards.

For horses bred and sired in Pennsylvania, breeders earn a 50 percent bonus on purse earnings for maiden races run within the state. Runners bred in the state but sired by a horse standing elsewhere are eligible for a 25 percent bonus. For all other races within the Keystone State, runners bred and sired in Pennsylvania can earn a 40 percent bonus, while those by out-of-state sires earn their breeders a 20 percent bonus.

Of Uptowncharlybrown Stud’s top 10 runners by breeder’s award earnings through the end of April, eight were by the operation’s flagship stallion, and the operation’s total income from that category was $128,820.

Uptowncharlybrown, a Grade 2-placed stakes-winning son of Limehouse, stands at WynOaks Farm in Delta, Pa. He’s developed into a perennial upper-tier sire in the state, where he currently third among Pennsylvania sires by progeny earnings, trailing only veteran sires Jump Start and Weigelia.

However, the runner that has generated the most breeder’s award monies for Uptowncharlybrown Stud is by a different sire.

For the Dreamers, a 4-year-old gelding by Talent Search, produced $25,872 in breeder’s awards through April 30 to lead the way.

Racing as a homebred, under the guidance of trainer Edward Coletti Jr., For the Dreamers won two of three starts during that timeframe, all at Parx Racing.

He took his seasonal debut on Jan. 11, when he bid three-wide and kicked away in the stretch to win a six-furlong allowance optional claiming race by 1 1/4 lengths. Two starts later, For the Dreamers led at every point of call to win a March 20 six-furlong claiming race by two lengths.

Among Uptowncharlybrown Stud’s runners by its flagship sire, the earners of breeder’s awards are led by Rolls Royce Joyce, who made $23,676 in incentives for her breeder.

The 6-year-old mare won two of five starts through the end of April, and she finished in the money in two other starts, all coming at Parx.

Like For the Dreamers, she won her seasonal bow – a 6 1/2-furlong starter optional claiming race on Jan. 4, where she held on to win by a neck. On March 6, she added another victory in another starter optional claimer at the same distance, this time rallying from the middle of the pack to prevail by three-quarters of a length.

Rolls Royce Joyce races for owner Richard Malouf and trainer Scott Lake.

Uptowncharlybrown Stud also compiled $54,035 in stallion awards through the end of April, thanks to its flagship stallion. Rolls Royce Joyce was the top generator of awards for her stallion, bringing in $5,919.

The owner of a Pennsylvania-based stallion at the time of a foal’s conception is eligible for stallion awards generated by that foal. Stallion owners receive 10 percent of the purse earned when a registered Pennsylvania-bred and -sired runner finishes in the top three in any pari-mutuel race within the state.
