Tiny Charger ... 

A brown stallion, standing 15.1 and weighing 1250, Tiny Charger is perhaps the greatest son of Depth Charge (TB) available today.

An excerpt from the book,  
"Speed and the Quarter Horse:  a Payload of Sprinters"  
(1973) by Nelson C. Nye

Bred by Frank Vessels, foaled in 1960 and campaigned by Western Stables under conditioner Earl K. Holmes, Tiny Charger was out of Clabber Tiny (by Clabber II from Tiny Iny, TB). As a two- and three-year-old, he earned $73,356 from straightaway performance. A Top AAA, as a three-year-old in 1963, he won the following stakes: the Inaugural at Bay Meadows (January 5) over Jet Deck and Pacific Bars; the Hollywood Handicap at Bay Meadows (January 26) over Copan Buck and Golden Note; and the Inaugural at Los Alamitos (April 9) over Chudej’s Rhoda and Moolah Bar.

He Ran during a period when competition was at its toughest. He outran such paragons of speed as Anna Dial, Straw Flight, Top Moon, Dari Star, Dariman, Scooper Chick, Bar Depth and Hustling Man. He outran Jet Deck twice – a considerable accomplishment.

Tiny Charger was second in the Pomona Quarter Horse Championship to Anna Dial and second in the Los Ninos to Joe Sherry; and third in the Josie Bar behind Jet Deck and Anna Dial. This was in 1963. He was fourth in the Los Alamitos Championship Stakes, fourth in the Los Alamitos Derby at 440, fourth in the Clabbertown G Stakes. He set a new three-year-old colt record in a 350 allowance at Los Alamitos, taking the win by a nose in :17.72 over Straw Flight and Dari Star. His first year on the tracks he ran second in the Los Alamitos Futurity, beaten three-quarters of a length by Hustling Man; second by a neck to Jet Deck in the California Bred Futurity; and third to Jet Deck and Top Moon in the Kindergarten Stakes.

From thirteen starts in 1962 he took four firsts, five seconds and three thirds, earning $58,561.84, running twelve of these in AAA. In 1963 he ran twelve races, for five wins, three seconds and one third all AAA – earning $15,920.

Spencer Childers leased Tiny Charger for stud services, standing him through 1969; he was brought back to the Vessels Stallion Farm for the 1970 season. His get, doing well on the tracks and in show business too, seem to inherit his good disposition and fine conformation. His total track earnings, including Cal-Bred awards, amounted to $84,506.84. He is a half brother to the 1966 Co-Champion Quarter Running Stallion, Tiny Watch.

Tiny Charger (AAAT) is the sire of Blobby Charger (stakes-winning AAA), Charging Mac (stakes-winning AAA), Red Chigger Bar (AAA), The Poltroon (AAA), Tiny Hop (AAA), Charge For Three (AAA), Steeldust Guy, (stakes-winning AAA), One for the Money (AAA), Real Charger (AAA), The Varlet (AAA), Tiny Thunderbird (AAA), and Reller (AAA), among others.

A few mint copies (sealed in original boxes) of this book are available. This is the 6th,  and by far the largest of only 6 horse books written by Nelson C. Nye,  Quarter Horse historian and western novelist.  Click here for information and availability.
