My Charmer Handicap

The My Charmer Handicap is an American Grade IIIT Thoroughbred horse race run on the turf course at Calder Race Course in Miami Gardens, Florida each year.

Open to fillies and mares three-years-old and up, it is set at a distance of one and one-eighth miles (9 furlongs) and offers a purse of $100,000.

The My Charmer is the first of four $100,000 stakes on Calder’s Grand Slam I card, along with the Three Ring Stakes, the Foolish Pleasure Stakes, and Grade 3 Tropical Turf Handicap.

The is race is named for My Charmer, the dam of U.S. Triple Crown champion, Seattle Slew. She also produced the important European sire Seattle Dancer who had sold as a yearling at the Keeneland Sales for US$13.1 million, the highest amount ever paid for a yearling at public auction. As well, My Charmer produced Lomond, the 1983 winner of the British Classic, the 2,000 Guineas.
