When looking to breed those are words everyone wants to hear and Indian Charlie delivers both. Standing at Airdrie Stud at a fee of 70K, or 63K, if paid before November 1, 2010, he’s worth every penny.
Look at his progeny: which includes 4 Champions, Grade 1 stakes heroes Indian Blessing, Fleet Indian and Pampered Princess, and 76 stakes horses with over $26M in earnings through December 2008.
His recent stakes performers include two time Champion INDIAN BLESSING, a multiple Grade I winner in 2008 as well as the jaw-droppingly fast Mr Nightlinger, a multiple graded stakes winner that is widely viewed as the nation's top turf sprinter. Siring an Eclipse champion in each of the last three years, Indian Charlie has arrived as one of the nation's most important proven stallions at stud (Aridrie Stud web site). Much like him his prodigy posses both speed and attitude (he’s bit me several times).
Look at the numbers: last year his yearlings sold for a total of $5,346,000 and average of $121,000 and a med of $85,000 with a 2008 fee of $50,000. Simply put he’s money - and when looking to breed your mare you just can’t get much better than that.
Look at him: physically imposing possessing both a well muscled and balanced body he’s a very nice horse. If you go see him I can guarantee you’ll be impressed, but don’t forget the peppermints he can get a little testy otherwise.
