With the victory in the Sunland Derby, Governor Charlie picks up 50 points towards a spot in the starting gate for the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

Long shot Show Some Magic finished a good second, Todd Pletcher's Abraham finished third, and the morning line favorite and stablemate of the winner, Shakin it Up, rounded out the superfecta.
