Welcome Return By Myboycharlie
Thursday, 26 August 2010: Named French Champion 2YO of 2008, Myboycharlie was the last of Vinery's three shuttle sires to arrive at the Scone property nursery in time to begin serving on September 1.
"We've not seen Myboycharlie since he was here last season but you can see what a change there has been in the horse in that time,' said Vinery Stud's Adam White.
"He has let down into a lovely horse which would suggest that he enjoys being a stallion and copes well with the work rate and the travelling.'
Myboycharlie's 2010 covers will exceed last season's book of 94.
"We were very pleased to see him cover so many mares last season in light of the fact that he wasn't announced as joining the Vinery roster until the very eve of the season,' said White.
Myboycharlie made an immediate impact last year proving to be an exceptionally fertile horse.
"Any potential issue in that regard was put to rest quickly and he subsequently returned 98 percent of mares in foal from his inital Northern Hemisphere season at the English National Stud.
"That really is quite a phenomenal figure," White said.
Myboycharlie's return to Vinery coincides with the birth of his first crop of foals.
"We've been hearing very positive reports about his foals,”' White said.
"They are certainly throwing to type. They are strong bodied foals with good bone that look like they'd be early runners like Myboycharlie was himself.
"A number of breeders and farms who've foaled a Myboycharlie already this year have booked back to the stallion on the strength of those foals and there is no greater compliment than that.'
"Myboycharlie seems certain to continue the extraordinary success of the Danehill-line around the globe.
"He was the first Group One winner for his sire Danetime, who was making an enormous impact with Group One winners in both hemispheres before his untimely death,' White said.
Myboycharlie's female line is very familiar to Australian breeders given the presence of the imported mare Snowdrift hose offspring include Golden Slipper placegetter Portillo and the successful sires Snowland and Snippetson.
