Them bastards in Gaptooth Breach got my friend, Floyd. Please, mister, you gotta save him!

Clay Pettiford to John Marston

Clay Pettiford is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Clay partners with Floyd Brogles to journey to Gaptooth Breach in search of treasure in the mine. While using the miners' railway house, they are attacked and Floyd is captured and hogtied. Clay manages to escape, but is injured in the process and ultimately does not make it too far from the mine entrance and during the battle he is killed. He wears a straw boater hat and nice clothes, suggesting that he is fairly well-to-do. He can also be seen by the player sitting on the bench outside the FELIX PUBLISHING & IMMIGRATION CO., suggesting he might work there.


When Marston first enters the Gaptooth Breach gang hideout, he encounters an injured Pettiford, hiding behind two crates on the outskirts of the miner's camp. Clay explains the situation to John, and where they are holding his partner, Floyd.

Despite the fact that he appears to perish in Gaptooth Breach, Clay can still be found in Blackwater, wandering through the town. He has been known to frequent Armadillo, as well as other locations in West Elizabeth.

It appears Clay is also the announcer for the races during the missions "Liars, Cheats and Other Proud Americans" and "The Sport of Kings, and Liars".


  • He can be found dead after Gaptooth Breach is completed.
  • He will also slump into a death pose if the players stays in exactly the same spot for two seconds after the cutscene at Gaptooth Breach.
  • If the player kills Clay at Gaptooth Breach, they will not be able to finish the hideout.
  • He wears exactly the same outfit as Titus Sinclair, with the exception that Sinclair sports a bow tie.
