Welcome to our newest Showcase stallion: Roi Charmant!
Thank you to owner B & B Zietz Stables and Magali Farms of Santa Ynez, California, for adding their stallion, Roi Charmant, to our Showcase!
A durable winner from the ages of 2 to 8 on the dirt, turf and synthetic surfaces of Southern California, Roi Charmant was an elite performer who utilized his blazing speed to compete in some of the region's top events for sprinters. He won or placed in 18 of his 27 career starts for lifetime earnings of $337,678, and regularly recorded triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures while doing most of his running on the front end. He placed in four stakes races, including Santa Anita Park's Potrero Grande Breeders' Cup Handicap (G2) and San Miguel Stakes (G3), defeated crack sprinters such as the Grade 1 winners Greg's Gold and Siren Lure and concluded his career with a perfect four-race season in 2009 before he retired to stand in California.
As a son of Grade 2 winner Evansville Slew out of the winning Seattle Dancer mare Cantina, he represents the prolific Seattle Slew sire line. The 2010 Dubai Golden Shaheen (UAE-G1) winner, Kinsale King, is one of several notable runners in his immediate family.
Roi Charmant stands for a $1,500 fee at Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, California, with special consideration to approved mares. His first foals will arrive in 2011.
