Vinery Among The Winners

Euro Charline was the toast of Chicago last weekend when she became the first filly in history to win the prestigious Group1 Beverley D Stakes on the Arlington Circuit.

The filly was flown in from Newmarket UK by Marco Botti, to lay the gauntlet down to the cream of American mares in training at this time of the year.

The success of the filly has great significance to our local breeders here as she is by Myboycharlie, among the resident sires at Vinery.

Euro Charline is out of Eurolink Artemis, by Common Grounds, who at one stage of his career saw service here in Australia.

The filly will remain in America where she is owned by Barry Irwin, and will be trained in future by Todd Pletcher, her passage is booked for Santa Anita in November, her mission the Group 1Breeders Cup for fillies and mares.    

While Myboycharlie is adding to his credits in far off Chicago, Casino Prince was flying the flag at Caulfield with Star Rolling, winning the Peter Lawrence Stakes at W F A.

And Testa Rossa was back in the act when his daughter, Samartested, graduated from Geelong to Sandown winning over 1400 metres, she is a half sister to the Blue Diamond success, Samaready.


Big Guns Firing At Vinery

Vinery have experienced a remarkable season in 2013-14 with the big guns, More Than Ready, Mossman and Testa Rossa, have all had a rewarding season, each exceeding the magical ton of winners.

More Than Ready, foaled in1997, has been the model of consistency with 149 winners for the season, he has got away to a brilliant start in the new season when former Golden Slipper winner, Phelan Ready, saluted the judge at Eagle Farm.

Across the Nullabor, in Perth, the son of Southern Halo was striking gold again when Galaxy Prince scored in the opening event on the card, and Testa Rossa got into the act when Angel Rose scored on the same program.

Backbone winning on successive weeks at Flemington, and Moonee Valley, illustrated the versatility of Mossman as a sire.

The new season has commenced in sparkling fashion for Vinery with Pienko. winning at Eagle Farm. a two state double for Casino Prince, and first starter. Testafly. kept the light shining on her sire, Testa Rossa, in winning at Newcastle.


More Than Ready Another Stakes Winner

Celebrity Miss became the 129th Stakes winner for More Than Ready when she won the Bolton Sprint over 1200 metres at Belmont in Perth.

She extended her strike rate to eight wins from 17 starts, and increased her stake earnings to $238,000, and increased her stud value considerably now with Black Type alongside her name.

Celebrity Miss is out of the Marscay mare Miss Margaret, she has proved a good dual purpose mare winning eight races herself and producing six winning foals from eight to race.

Bob Peters, and his wife Sandra, have supported More Than Ready numerous times; you could say the son of Southern Halo has been kind to them.

Miss Margaret, now 21, has produced 11 foals, she has called it quits and leaving it now to those that will follow.


More Than Ready’s Treble

Idle Chat’s success in the Sir James Kirby Quality, at Grafton yesterday, was the third leg of a winning treble for More Than Ready, following on from the success of, Wonderbolt at Rosehill, and Celebrity Miss’s win at Belmont W A.

More Than Ready’s record for the season stands at 141 winners, his progeny earnings in both hemispheres stands at $6,833,560.

Among the rewarding factor around More Than Ready is his Golden Slipper winning son, Sebring, who has had a sensational start to his stud career, with a Derby winner from his first crop to race.

More Than Ready is well into the big league as the most successful sire to shuttle direct from the United States to Australia

Vinery On A Roll

A spate of winners by Vinery based sires over the past week focuses attention on the leading breeding farm in the Hunter Valley.

Vinery’s premier sire, More Than Ready, got the ball rolling siring Sugar Rush; she recorded her fourth win at Randwick last week.

She is from the New Zealand bred mare Sugar Babe, by Exceed and Excel, the first foal of her dam to race.

Testa Rossa could be likened to a good beverage, he just continues pressing on, with a running double at Morphettville this is evidence of the type of horses he gets when they find form and retain it, he has always proved a popular sire in the sale ring.

Excites is really beginning to fire up, his winner at Randwick last week, Black Jag, out of the Chris Waller yard, scored an impressive win taking out the McGrath Estate Agents race by 6 lengths.

It was action again for Excites when the more than handy filly, Parraay, put paid to her opposition at Canterbury, while the margin may have been slender the win was impressive, she is the only foal from her dam to race.

More Than Ready and Excites were among the winning sires again yesterday, this time at Rosehill.

Mossman was not left out either when siring Hopfgarten, who took out the Sunshine Coast Guineas for trainer, Robert Heathcote.
