Myboycharlie off the mark in Australia

THE stud career of Prix Morny winner Myboycharlie got off to the perfect start on Saturday when his first runner, Charlie Boy, justified even money favouritism on his debut at Rosehill in Australia.

The Gerald Ryan-trained colt hails from his sire's first Australian crop. Myboycharlie's first crop of 60 European two-year-olds, bred during his time at the National Stud, race next year.

Triple Crown Syndications paid A$80,000 for Charlie Boy, who is the first foal out of the Falbrav mare Maritime, at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in January.

"Myboycharlie was a first season sire that we took a particular interest in and is one that we thought we would work out here in Australia,'' Triple Crown's co-director Michael Ward said.

"Obviously he is a grandson of Danehill and there are some successful Australian runners in his family.

"Charlie Boy was an extremely athletic type. He always moved beautifully and just ticked all the boxes for us.'

"I think he will really go on with it in the autumn because he is well above average. And there is a fair bit of improvement in the horse so it augurs well for the new year."

Myboycharlie is currently standing the southern hemisphere season at Vinery in Australia for A$8,800. He will stand next year's northern hemisphere season at Haras du Mezeray.

Trained by Tommy Stack, Myboycharlie won three races including the Prix Morny. His first crop of European yearlings have sold for up to 160,000gns.
