BIG WEEK FOR ‘CHARLIE

English based colt Greed Is Good completed another winning week for Vinery sire Myboycharlie on Friday.

Myboycharlie (Ire) shuttles to Vinery from Haras du Mezeray and his first northern runners are head-to-head with their southern counterparts

Lover Of Life became his 7th Australian-bred winner last Sunday.  She is trained by David Pfieffer at Warwick Farm for a syndicate that includes Glenn Butterworth, Alan Stephenson, Jason Watkins and Paul Webster.

The Myboycharlie spotlight switched to England on Tuesday when he had four lots sell up to 56,000 pounds (AUD 96,554) at the Doncaster Yearling Sale.

Jazri followed up at Kempton on Wednesday before Greed Is Good became Myboycharlie’s 7th northern-bred winner at Thirsk on Friday.

Greed Is Good started favourite in the British Stallion Studs Maiden (1600m) after putting the writing on the wall when second at Newmarket earlier this month.  He tracked leaders and then made headway to defeat front-runner Hartnell (Authorized) by over a length.

Meanwhile back home, Myboycharlie’s 3yo gelding Dowdstown Charlie is in line to become his sire’s first Australian stakeswinner when he tackles this weekend’s Group 3 ATC Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) at Randwick.

The David Payne trained 3YO is one of three Australian-bred stakes-performers sired by the French Champion 2YO having finished third in the Rosebud (1200m) to open his current campaign.

Myboycharlie’s Silver Slipper placegetter, Charlie Boy, is not far off resuming and looks in great shape after posting consecutive seconds in recent separate Rosehill barriers including a nose behind last season’s Champion 2YO Filly, Guelph on August 20.

Myboycharlie (Danetime) was a G1 winner of the 2007 Prix Morny and he shuttles to Vinery Stud for a $16,500 (inc gst) service fee.
