A brilliant last to first win by Peggy Jean Rosehill’s trials last Friday has ignited the Inglis Classic winner’s autumn ambitions on the eve of her return to racing in this weekend’s Magic Night Stakes.
The Gerald Ryan trained filly was ridden cold at the back of the field by Nash Rawiller in her 900m heat but put paid to her five rivals with ease, going onto score by a length.
Peggy Jean will bypass the Golden Slipper in favour of Randwick’s Sires’ Produce and Champagne Stakes on April 12 and 19 respectively.
The daughter of Myboycharlie was one of several in the red and white colours of Triple Crown Syndications that excelled at these heats.
Stablemate Dothraki won his 900m hit-out with his ears pricked to record his second trial win this month.
Triple Crown co-founder Michael Ward informed The Sportsman that the Gosford Guineas on April 6 will be the starting point for the Mossman son.
Meanwhile, Triple Crown’s incredible affinity with Myboycharlie is poised to add another chapter when the Gerald Ryan trained Charlie Royale makes his debut at Randwick/Kensington in the TAB Early Quaddie Plate (1150m) on Wednesday.
Charlie Royale was bought by Triple Crown Syndications for $90,000 out of Vinery’s 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale draft.
“He’s another son of Myboycharlie who’s done a good job for us with Charlie Boy and Peggy Jean – and we’ve got a yearling that we picked up from the Classic Sale that we are syndicating now and really rate, so he’s been a good stallion to us,” Triple Crown co-founder Chris Ward said.
“Charlie Royale was good value at $90,000, Charlie Boy was $85,000 and Peggy Jean was $46,000 so they are horses that, at the moment, you can get them at really good value and they run well, hopefully they will keep continuing doing so.”
