Adios Charlie represented by first foal in Florida


Grade 2 winner Adios Charlie was represented by his first foal, a filly born on March 2 at Ocala Stud Farm in Ocala, Fla.

The bay filly is out of the Notebook mare Ennuhway, dam of popular New York Racing Association circuit runner and stakes winner Lisa’s Booby Trap, by Drewman, as well as five other winners.

“This filly is a crackerjack foal, and a great first sign for the stallion career of Adios Charlie,” said Ocala Stud owner J. Michael O’Farrell. “He bred 48 mares last year after getting a late start. Adios Charlie has the right combination of talent, pedigree and looks to be a top sire, and his first foal couldn’t be more impressive.”

Adios Charlie was purchased by Stanley Hough, as agent for Robert Sahn, for $400,000 at the 2010 Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co. March sale of selected 2-year-olds in training. Co-owned by Sahn and his trainer Hough, Adios Charlie won three of seven starts in three seasons, earning $251,090. His Grade 2 win came as a 3-year-old in the Jerome Stakes, and he also finished second in the Grade 2 Peter Pan Stakes and Dwyer Stakes that year.

Adios Charlie, a 5-year-old son of Indian Charlie, stands at Ocala Stud for a fee of $3,000 when the foal stands and nurses. He is out of the stakes-winning Northern Afleet mare Teak Totem, a full sister to Grade 1 winner Teaks North and a half-sister to Grade 2 winner Wooden Phone and stakes winner Chief Okie Dokie. Teak Totem has also produced multiple stakes winner Streakin’ Mohican, by Songandaprayer, along with two other winners.
