Blueberry Hill Wins Gr2 Champagne Stakes
At Doomben in Brisbane, Vinery's Gr1-winning stallion Myboycharlie (Danetime-Dulceata, by Rousillon) added a Group success when 2YO filly Blueberry Hill (Myboycharlie-Perkipsey, by Falbrav) scored by 0.4-length for trainer Liam Birchley in the $175,000 Gr2 Champagne Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs, over 2YO colt Wicked Intent (Wicked Style-Tell'em It's Easy, by Easy Rocking) & fellow 2YO filly Pepperano (Court Command-Serrano, by Ferocity). This was the first stakes victory for the highly promising Blueberry Hill who took her record to 3 wins and 1 placing (the Gr3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic) from 4 starts for $212,700 earnings.
