Bwana Charlie

Grade II winner Bwana Charliewill stand in 2008 at Brent and Crystal Fernung's Journeyman Stud near Ocala, Fla. Formerly at Becky Thomas' Sequel Stallions near Orange Lake, Fla., the 6-year-old son of Indian Charlie will stand for $6,500.

As a 3-year-old in 2004, Bwana Charlie won the 2004 Amsterdam Stakes (gr. II) over Pomeroyand Weigelia at Saratoga and the Lafayette Stakes (gr. III) at Keeneland. He also ran a solid fourth in that year's Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I). He won or placed in 13 of 19 races and earned $388,850.

"He was a top class sprinter, has a solid pedigree, and looks the part," Brent Fernung said.

Bwana Charlie, whose first foals are weanlings, is a half-brother to 2007 graded stakes winner Bwana Bull and is out of the Halo mare Shahalo. He is owned by Thomas in partnership with Bill Heiligbrodt and Dennis Narlinger.
