Gilgai purchases proper share of Myboycharlie

Black Caviar’s breeder Rick Jamieson has purchased an interest in exciting young Vinery stallion Myboycharlie.

The son of Danetime was one of the most profitable first season sires at the major 2012 Australian yearling sales.  They sold to a high of $170,000 and he produced 8 yearlings that sold for $100,000 or more.

Bloodstock agent Dermot Farrington, commenting on behalf of the Jamieson owned Gilgai Farm, said the Victorian based breeder is delighted to be able to secure a part of Myboycharlie.

“I watched him race in Ireland and France and he was top class and very good looking to boot,” Farrington said.  “The SF Bloodstock syndicate that that owns Myboycharlie along with Vinery Stud, have supported the stallion with very good mares from the start.

“Gilgai will send some of its very best mares to the stallion who must be one of the best value horses at stud in Australia.”

The first crop of Myboycharlie have just turned two and will enter some of the country’s leading stables including Gai Waterhouse, Gerald Ryan, Anthony Freedman, David Hayes, David Payne, Mathew Smith, Jason Warren and Michael Kent.

Gai Waterhouse has three Myboycharlies in her stable and was full of praise for them.  “Between Star Thoroughbreds and my team we purchased three yearlings by Myboycharlie,” she said.  “Each and every one of them look like making smart two-year-olds as they are natural athletes with very willing attitudes.”

Myboycharlie (Danetime – Dulceata by Rousillon) won his first three starts in sizzling fashion culminating with a G1 win in the Prix Morny (1200m).  France’s premier juvenile event has been won by champion sires Blushing Groom, Irish River, Machiavellian and Zafonic.

Following that victory, he trounced a deep field in the G3 Anglesey Stakes (1200m) by seven lengths.  At his next run he was a narrow third in the G1 National Stakes (1400m) also at the Curragh.

Myboycharlie will stand for a service fee of $8,800( inc gst) at Vinery this year.
