Roger Charlton Racehorse Trainer

Roger Charlton 2yo horses for 2020
Older readers may remember the 1990 Epsom Derby winner Quest For Fame powering home under a fantastic ride from legend Pat Eddery to win Britain's richest horse race. That's just one of the many successes for the great trainer Roger Charlton when teaming up with owner K Abdullah. Cityscape was another who had a list of group wins to his name the highlight being the Dubai Duty-Free Group 1 at Meydan back in 2012. Bated Breath a high-class sprinter and a winner of the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock in 2012 also finishing runner-up in four group ones in a fantastic career. Others to mention are Fair Eva, Time Test, Headman and Pocket Square all group winners. 

As a 2-year-old fan, one of the horses that impressed me most last year was QUADRILATERAL who is unbeaten after three impressive performances. The Frankel filly made her debut at Newbury in August and was well-supported from 9/2 into 7/2. The money was down and Quadrilateral didn't disappoint when beating Mambo Night a shade cosily. An impressive 9-length win came next when moving up a level to the Class 2 Duty-Free Stakes again at Newbury in September and confirming this was a filly to be reckoned with. The Group 1 Fillies Mile was the next stop and another win when beating Powerful Breeze by a neck. The Guineas looks like the next target and hopefully, this season will bring more success. 



I will be keeping a close eye to see what Roger Charlton sends out this season and adding a few in the trackers including these: 

BEHELD 2018 ch.f by Frankel ex Tendu. The dam is a sister to stallion Showcasing who ended her career rated 107 and the highlight being a second in the Group 3 Merriebelle Stable Pavilion Stakes in 2015. 

BOLTAWAY 2018 ch.c by Dubawi ex Proviso. Dam won four Group Ones in America in what was an impressive career which included a second in the Meon Valley Stud Fillies Mile Group 1 race at Ascot as a 2-year-old and finishing her career with a racing post rating of 114. It looks like a nice pedigree and one to look out for. 

KEEPER 2018 b.c by Frankel ex Portodora. Dam never reached great heights but had a couple of wins to her name but has produced a few nice winners including the Hugo Palmer gelding Set Piece who won a Listed race at Kempton last September. 

LUCID DREAMER 2018 b.f by Dansili ex Sleep Walk. Dam only raced one season in 2014 winning twice. Lucid Dreamer is a full sister to unraced Night Ranger. 

LUDISIA 2018 b.f by Frankel ex African Rose. The dam had a successful career winning the Group 1 Ladbrokes Sprint Cup in 2008 being the highlight and the highest Racing Post rating of 116. Ludisia is a full sister to the 108 rated Fair Eva and looks a very nice type on paper for the season ahead. 

QUILTED 2018 b.f by Frankel ex Nimble Thimble. Dam only raced three times winning a Class 6 Maiden in 2012. Quilted is a full sister to Quadrilateral and another Roger Charlton filly I will be looking forward to seeing hopefully this season. 

Thanks for reading.
