APRIL 18, 2017: Bowness Stud is to become the new Australian home of Myboycharlie (Ire), sire of the triple Group 1 winning racemare Jameka.
Stud principal John North has confirmed that the prolific Danehill-line stallion is to join the Bowness stallion roster, providing easier access for the strong contingent of Victorian-based broodmare owners looking to use the sire of Australia’s leading staying racemare.
The sire of close on 250 individual winners worldwide, Myboycharlie has established himself as a stallion capable of siring quality performers in all facets of domestic competition.
Obviously, Jameka is the clear standout. The winner of this season’s Caulfield Cup (G1) and BMW (G1), as well as the 2015 VRC Oaks (G1) in her Classic season, the 4-year-old’s formidable race record also includes another five Group 1 placings over distances ranging from 1600m-2400m.
A European Group 1 winning 2-year-old of the very highest order himself, Myboycharlie’s other notable progeny in Australia feature the ATC Sires’ Produce (G1) winning juvenile Peggy Jean, as well as the Group winning sprinters Charlie Boy, Blueberry Hill and Zelady’s Night Out.
Myboycharlie is to stand alongside Bon Hoffa, Bullet Train (GB) and Walking or Dancing (NZ) this coming season. His service fee has been set at $8800 (inc. GST).
