CHARLIE’S ANGEL

THE demand for Myboycharlie’s first crop has shown no signs of weakening after the third day of selling at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling sale with more six figure returns including $150,000 for “Charlie’s Angel” a cracking filly out of Come Fly With Me offered by Robin Wise.

With 8 ofered and 8 sold so far, Myboycharlie’s debut crop of yearlings are trading at an average of more than $100,000 off an introductory servive fee of under $15,000.
Among the highest priced of his yearlings were lots who sold for; $165,000, $150,000, $140,000, $135,000 and $130,000.
Buyers included Denise Martin (Gai Waterhouse) times two, David Payne, John Sadler, Anthony Freedman, Davis Hayes, Peter Moody and Singapore based Cliff Brown.

“Vinery couldn’t be more thrilled with the reception that the Myboycharlie yearlings have received at the Magic Millions,” says the Stud’s Adam White.

“They were very well inspected in the days leading up to the sale and the competition was intense. As I said yesterday, not only are we delighted for the individual vendors who were one, able to sell their horses but also at vey good returns, the stables where these horses have gone ensures that they will be given the best possible chance to succeed.

“It’s been a phenomally good dale for the stallion.
“We came here thinking the More Than Ready, Testa Rossa’s and Mossman would do well – and they have – they are proven sires. but to see a first season regularly making six figures is just fantastic.

“It’s not easy to sell an overseas horse in his first year to buyers, they don’t see them race here or they may not be familiar with their pedigrees,” says White,” but type wins out in most cases and the Myboycharlie’s are great types. (Magic Millions managing director) Vin Cox said before the sale that they are ‘peas in a pod’ and I think that’s reflected in how they have sold. They are all from different mares, many of them first foals, but they look so alike, so there really isn’t that much difference between them.

“Buyers just seem to close to the catalogue and be buying them on type. That’s where they are coming into their own.”
