Myboycharlie back in Newmarket for stud duty
PRIXMorny winner Myboycharlie has returned to the National Stud in Newmarket for his second northern hemisphere covering season, having spent his second southern hemisphere breeding season at Vinery Australia.
Myboycharlie will have numbers on his side when his first foals eventually grace the racecourse, as he covered 80 mares in his first book at the National Stud last year and 110 mares in his second book in Australia.
Among the mares to have visited Myboycharlie atthe National Stud last year were Molecomb Stakes winner and King's Stand Stakes runner-up Misty Eyed and the dams of dual Sun Chariot Stakes winner Sahpresa and Grade 1 winner Amorama.
National Stud managing director Brian O'Rourke said: "Myboycharlie has covered 80 mares in his first northern hemisphere season in a year that has been tough for first-season sires.
"We are extremely pleased with the quality of mares covered and with the stallion's fertility; he finished his season with 98 per cent of his mares in foal. We are really looking forward to seeing examples of his first foals up here."
Myboycharlie, a six-year-old son of Danetime, will stand at a fee of £5,000 at the National Stud this spring.
