Uptowncharlybrown to McLaughlin

The newest member of trainer Kiaran McLaughlin’s barn is Belmont Stakes hopeful Uptowncharlybrown, most recently third in the Grade 2 Lexington at Keeneland on April 17.

 

“He’s a really nice horse and we are happy to have him,” said McLaughlin. “We’ll work him tomorrow, and hopefully every Saturday up to the Belmont Stakes. We think he has a big chance in the Belmont.”

 

A son of Limehouse, Uptowncharlybrown won his first two races by a combined margin of 15 lengths at Tampa Bay Downs, and then finished third to Rule in the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis and fifth behind Odysseus, Schoolyard Dreams and eventual Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver in the Grade 3 Tampa Bay Derby on March 13.

 

“I’ve watched him ever since he broke his maiden, so we are lucky to have him,” said McLaughlin. “He’s by Limehouse, and with his come-from-behind running style distance doesn’t seem to be a problem.”

 

Owned by Fantasy Lane Stable, Uptowncharlybrown will be ridden by Rajiv Maragh in the 142nd running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 5, said McLaughlin.
