VINERY Stud resident Myboycharlie’s dream debut at the 2012 yearling sales series has made him him one of the most keenly sought after young sires on the national roster.
The demand for the Group 1 winning two-year-olds progeny at the all important Magic Millions Yearling Sale on the Gold Coast in January set the tone for what was to repeat at other majors sales in Australia and across in New Zealand.
The fact that all eight of his Magic Millions premier session colts and fillies were sold reflect their level of popularity with trainers, owners and syndicators.
Not only did they have no problem attracting bids, Myboycharlie’s yearlings sold above and beyond expectation.
His MM octet brought in a total almost $1 million selling for an average price of $117,500.
Five of the eight sold for $100,00 or more.
All this from a service fee of $14,300 (inc GST) reflecting a gratifying 8.2-fold return on the initial outlay.
Buyers included the likes of David Hayes, Anthony Freedman, John Sadler, David Payne, Gai Waterhouse and her Star Thoroughbreds partner, Denise Martin who took home three between them.
“They were impressive yearlings that caught the eye ,” Martin says, “they are athletic, good boned and simply youngsters that I wanted to have under the Star banner.
“I normally would like to see an overseas do the job first but I was very happy to the opportunity to buy a couple of Myboycharlie’s because they were horses that all our or team liked very much. They just appealed to us.
“I think that he is a really good chance to make it in Australia.”
