Charlie Royale brave to the wire

A brave performance at Bathurst on Monday saw Triple Crown Syndications’ 4yo Charlie Royale (Myboycharlie ex Collodi) take out the 1406m Maiden Plate with Jeff Penza on board, earning a further $8,200 prizemoney for his owners.

The Bjorn Baker trained gelding has been very consistent in his racing and has continued to improve throughout this preparation, with a third, second and now first place finish from three starts.

Springing from barrier nine Charlie Royale unfortunately found himself wide without cover for much of the trip, and performed a fair bit of work to remain in contention before finding strength to the line despite carrying the top weight of 59kg.

 The win will certainly serve as a confidence booster for Charlie Royale and the Triple Crown team is looking forward to seeing him in action again in the coming weeks.

 Congratulations to all connections!
