California sire Roi Charmant represented by first winner


Multiple graded stakes-placed Roi Charmant, who stands at Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, Calif., was represented by his first winner on Saturday, when Pheisty Kid took a maiden special weight race at Golden Gate Fields.

Pheisty Kid, a 2-year-old bay gelding out of the multiple stakes-winning Lyphaness mare Pheiffer, covered 4 1/2 furlongs in :52.42 over Golden Gate’s synthetic Tapeta Footings surface for owner Billy Hipwell and trainer Sergio Ledezma. He finished third in his debut at Golden Gate last month.

Roi Charmant won eight times from 27 starts over seven seasons and earned $337,678. He placed in four stakes races, including a runner-up effort in the Grade 3 San Miguel Stakes and a third in the Grade 2 Potrero Grande Breeders’ Cup Handicap.

Roi Charmant, a 12-year-old son of Evansville Slew, is out of the winning Seattle Dancer mare Cantina. He has eight registered juveniles in his first crop.
