PRIX Morny winner Myboycharlie has shuttled safely to the National Stud in Newmarket for his second northern hemisphere covering season, having spent his second southern hemisphere breeding season at Vinery Australia.
Myboycharlie, a son of Danetime, will have numbers on his side when his first foals eventually grace the racecourse, as he covered 80 mares in his first book at the National Stud last year and 105 mares in his second book in Australia.
Among the mares to have visited Myboycharlie at the National Stud last year were Molecomb Stakes winner and King’s Stand Stakes runner-up Misty Eyed and the dams of dual Sun Chariot Stakes winner Sahpresa and Grade 1 winner Amorama.
Speaking to the Racingpost, National Stud managing director Brian O’Rourke said: “Myboycharlie has covered 80 mares in his first northern hemisphere season in a year that has been tough for first-season sires.
“We are extremely pleased with the quality of mares covered and with the stallion’s fertility; he finished his season with 98 per cent of his mares in foal. We are really looking forward to seeing examples of his first foals up here.”
Myboycharlie foals impressed breeders in Australia with the stallions book growing by over 10% from his first season due to the quality of his first season foals.
