Myboycharlie to stand at the National Stud

MYBOYCHARLIE, one of the leading two-year-olds of the 2007 season, will stand in the northern hemisphere for the first time next year at the National Stud.

The son of Danetime is currently covering his first bookof mares at Vinery Stud in New South Wales, Australia. He is due to arrive in Newmarket in early January.

Bred by Tally-Ho Stud in Ireland out of the Rousillon mare Dulceata, Myboycharlie hails from the family of Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Tarascon.

He was bought as a juvenile by Coolmore after his seven-length win in the Anglesey Stakes. He went on to score in the Prix Morny - in which he beat Natagora and Alexandros - before finishing third in the National Stakes behind New Approach.

Those efforts earned him the title of champion juvenile in France, and he was also rated the third best two-year-old in Ireland that year.

After failing to sparkle in two starts in two European Group 3 races at three, Myboycharlie was sold to race in the US, where he won once from three starts.

Brian O’Rourke, managing director of the National Stud, said: "I am delighted that Myboycharlie is joining us in 2010. He represents an outstanding opportunity to use a Group 1-winning grandson of Danehill, and looks certain to sire fast and precocious two-year-olds. We are pleased to be able to make him available to British breeders."

Myboycharlie's fee, along with those for other stallions on the National Stud roster, will be announced later in the year.
