Happy Victory At Happy Valley

Friday, 22nd May 2015

Myboycharlie 3YO Happy Surveys maintained his unbeaten record in Hong Kong with another impressive victory at Happy Valley on Wednesday evening. Champion jockey Joao Moreira drove the promising sprinter through a gap in the straight to win the Le French May Trophy (1200m) by a half-length from King Of Household (Testa Rossa). "Both of his races have worked out well and with the wet conditions they spread out and he got plenty of room," trainer John Size said. "He looks like he could win again on that." From the same crop as Gr1 winner Peggy Jean, Happy Surveys (Myboycharlie–Montelimar, by Fusaichi Pegasus) had won on debut in Hong Kong on May 5 on a dry track.  He had arrived from Australia after finishing midfield in a Cranbourne trial for Price Bloodstock last October. Sold as a yearling for $37,500 at the 2013 Adelaide Magic Millions, he is out of the stakes performer Montelimar who is a half-sister to Widden Stakes winner Superfly. She is also the dam of talented Myboycharlie gelding Loyalist who has won two of his last four starts at Wyong and Sunshine Coast for Newcastle trainer Todd Howlett. Myboycharlie is set for another big weekend in Brisbane with his last-start stakes winners Charlie Boy in the Gr1 Doomben 10,000 and Blueberry Hill in the Gr2 BRC Sires' Produce Stakes. Meanwhile, the sire's first crop Northern Hemisphere Gr1 winner Euro Charline is back in work for Team Valor and being aimed for the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot. Vinery will stand Myboycharlie for $11,000 (inc GST) in 2015.
