Vinery Stud’s Myboycharlie (IRE) has moved to third on the Australian Second Season Sires List behind More Than Ready’s Sebring and Northern Meteor, his fortunes also set to rise in Europe where his first three year-olds are starting their Classic season – reports Breednet.
Highly rated French colt Salai won the Listed Prix Omnium on his seasonal return last month and is set for the French 2,000 Guineas, while Team Valor International’s improving filly Euro Charline finished an unlucky second in the Group III Nell Gwyn Stakes and has been supplemented to the English 1,000 Guineas at a cost of 30,000 pounds.
Euro Charline was a three length maiden winner at first asking at Wolverhampton last November and was purchased privately by Team Valor after adding a handicap victory on that all-weather surface on March 8.
Kept with trainer Marco Botti, Euro Charline finished second to Sandiva in her turf debut in the Nell Gwyn, prompting connections to give her a shot at Group I company.
Myboycharlie already has a Group I winner on the board here in Australia in his second crop 2yo Peggy Jean, who won the Group I ATC Sires Produce Stakes and while she has now gone to the spelling paddock, Gerald Ryan’s other good Myboycharlie, Charlie Boy is set to campaign in Brisbane during the winter.
Raced by Triple Crown Syndications, as is Peggy Jean, Charlie Boy won the Group II VRC Danehill Stakes in the spring, but has been off the scene since finishing seventh in the Group I MRC Caulfield Guineas last October.
It’s no wonder the boys at Triple Crown are enamoured of Myboycharlie as they have yet another promising type by him in two year-old colt Charlie Royale.
Fourth, third and second at his first three starts, Charlie Royale has his hoof on the til and is set to run in the $125,000 Evergreen Turf Claret Quality for juveniles at Hawkesbury this Saturday.
Myboycharlie will return to Vinery this spring at an affordable fee of $13,200, down from $16,500 last year.
