Post-Race Analysis

Uptowncharlybrown Stud President Bob Hutt was fairly confident his two starters in the six-furlong stakes-full Pennsylvania-bred brothers by Uptowncharlybrown-would turn in honest performances. He ended up with a win and third and a bunch of very happy partners.

Also owned by his breeder, Godric LLC, Midtowncharlybrown took quick command in the Chocolatetown under Roberto Rosado and, as he did in the Fabulous Strike Stakes at Penn National last fall, wouldn’t let the competition pass him. He held on by a neck over the stalking Killybegs Captain in 1:08.83 as the 9-5 second choice.

His full brother, Midnightcharly, checked in third, while Laki was fourth after a slow start and traffic woes during the race.

“He loves this track,” said Hutt, who noted Midtowncharlybrown now has six wins and a second in seven Penn National starts. “It’s too bad we can’t pick up the Penn National track and take it everywhere. And (Parx Racing-based trainer Eddie Coletti Jr.) has a done an unbelievable job. This is just fantastic.”

Coletti said the connections probably will “wait for Parx,” the fourth stop in the MATCH Series, “but we’ll see how he comes out of this race and start from there.”
