Vinery welcomed back its shuttle stallions from quarantine on Wednesday afternoon.
More Than Ready, Myboycharlie, Congrats and Big Brown have returned to the Hunter Valley in readiness for the southern breeding season that commences in a couple of weeks.
Myboycharlie (Ire) will be popular this spring. His first Group 1 winner arrived in Australia while he covered his latest northern book at Haras du Mezeray in France – Peggy Jean made the breakthrough in the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes at Randwick in March.
Trainer Gerald Ryan will target more Group 1 success with Peggy Jean in the Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on October 4 and the Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 11.
Peggy Jean is being kept safe at $8 in pre-post markets for the Melbourne classic.
Myboycharlie filly Euro Charline (GB) can grab another Group 1 for her sire as early as this Saturday when she takes on older mares in the $750,000 Beverley D. Stakes at Arlington.
Euro Charline was Group 1 placed in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot in June prior to a facile victory in the LR Valiant Stakes back at Ascot on July 25.
Team Valor shipped her to North America where she will tackle one of the best fields of fillies and mares assembled for the Beverley D. Stakes in recent years.
Myboycharlie will stand for a $13,200 (inc gst) service fee at Vinery this year.
