Inglis Classic Yearling Sale
Amid the excitement of Peggy Jean’s win in the $250,000 Inglis Classic race last weekend, Chris and Michael Ward were busy scouting the Inglis complex at Newmarket for next year’s winner of the lucrative graduate race.
On day one of the sale they purchased Lot 144, the bay colt by Myboycharlie (IRE) from Amarina Farm. The progeny of Myboycharlie (IRE) have now provided him with multiple stakes wins in Australia, the first being Charlie Boy’s Group 2 Danehill Stakes win at Flemington, and more recently Peggy Jean’s Listed Inglis Classic win at Royal Randwick. Both are Triple Crown Syndications runners and both are trained by Gerald Ryan, who will also be training this eye-catching colt.
From the Elusive Quality (USA) mare, Elvish, this colt hails from the stakes winning family of Smart Road, Trusted Partner and Vain Fury. He is also bred on the same Danehill (USA) / Elusive Quality (USA) cross as four time Group 1 winner Guelph.
“Myboycharlie (IRE) is a sire who we identified would be successful in Australia, he is doing a great job and appears to be really stamping his stock”, Chris Ward commented.
“This colt possesses the same athleticism and strength that drew us to both Charlie Boy and Peggy Jean, so hopefully this time next year we will be seeing him in the Inglis Classic race”.
“It’s definitely a target that we have already set for him”, Ward added.
The Ward boys were also pleased to secure the Denman filly out of the Fastnet Rock mare, Lalonde, at terrific value.
Sold as Lot 249 from the Edinglassie Stud draft, the bay filly from the two-year-old winning family of multiple Group 1 winner, Episode, will be trained by Peter and Paul Snowden at Randwick.
Michael Ward reported “Peter and Paul obviously did a terrific job training this filly’s sire, Denman, to achieve Group 1 success, and she will have every opportunity under their guidance.”
“The Snowden’s are a leading training force in Australia and we are really excited to have them joining our Triple Crown team of trainers this year”.
“She is a neat, athletic filly and one that we believe will be up and running as a two-year-old. We are delighted to have picked her up at such great value ”, Michael continued.
