Butterfly Kiss continued a buoyant week for her sire Myboycharlie with a well-deserved victory at Ascot on Wednesday.
The Colin Webster trained filly hasn’t finished further back than fifth since her latest preparation began in October. The breakthrough came after she repelled a late charge from L’Rondine to win the Skyy Vodka Hcp (1100m).
“She was beaten by a pretty good one (Foxalicious) last time,” Webster said. “She’s so honest and is going out for a decent spell now. She’s got some growing to do and will develop into a nice filly later this year.”
Butterfly Kiss (3f Myboycharlie – Lip Pencil by Zeditave) is the first foal of a half-sister to G3 AJC Liverpool City Cup Catatonic. Her dam was sold in foal to Myboycharlie for $22,500 at the 2010 Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale.
Vinery sire Myboycharlie has another coming winner in Perth named Mo Gasur. The Trevor Andrews trained filly won a Belmont trial on Monday. She hasn’t been seen in public this season but was placed on debut at Ascot twelve months ago.
Myboycharlie sired last Saturday’s $250,000 Inglis 2YO Classic winner Peggy Jean and then finished in the Top 5 on the Classic Sale leader-board with 8 yearlings averaging $51,625.
The next Myboycharlie yearlings for sale are at the Perth Magic Millions on February 18 and 19. The colt from Bold Joy (Lot 24) is a half-brother to LR Boulder Cup winner Reverend Lovejoy and the filly out of Miss Sultry Song (Lot 113) is from a half-sister to Group 1 miler Mentality.
