Charlie Boy Eyes 2013 ATC Sires Produce Win

While all the pre-race hype for this Saturday’s ATC Sires Produce Stakes 2013 is on Golden Slipper winner Overreach, connections of Gerald Ryan’s young colt Charlie Boy are hoping for improvement as they too back up from a run in the world’s richest two-year-olds race.

Last Saturday Myboycharlie colt Charlie Boy went out as a $20 chance in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper but could only manage to finish six and a half lengths away eighth to Gai Waterhouse’s brilliant filly Overreach.

This weekend they will get their chance to improve on that run when they meet Overreach again this time at Royal Randwick on Australian Derby Day in the $500,000 Group 1 ATC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) with Ryan pleased with how they pulled up after the Slipper.

“Charlie Boy will run in the Sires’. He has come through the Slipper really well,” Ryan confirmed.

Ryan’s other Slipper runner Dothraki who finished dead last however has gone out for a spell.

Unsurprisingly Overreach is the odds-on favourite in the early ATC Sires Produce Stakes odds on the 101 early entries.

She is followed in the markets by the likes of Peter Snowden‘s Slipper fourth placegetter Guelph, the Peter Moody-trained High Chaparral colt So Man Up and $15 chance Charlie Boy.

A winner on debut at Rosehill last November Charlie Boy was a first-up third in the Silver Slipper Stakes in the mud behind subsequent Golden Slipper third placed Sweet Idea, who will also run in the ATC Sires Produce, before a fourth to Criterion in the Todman Stakes leading up to last weekend’s big one.

Having had two runs over the 1200m the progressive youngster is expected to be more competitive stepping up to the 1400m of the Sires Produce.

Ryan will also be represented by another juvenile on Saturday at Randwick with Snitzel colt Zaba Zaba Doo in the mix for the $125,000 Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) which is also on the cards for Peter Moody’s Il Cavallo who missed out on a run in the Slipper as the second emergency.

“Zaba Zaba Doo runs in the Kindergarten,” Ryan said of the youngster who won on debut at Randwick at the start of the month.

“He’s out of a Zabeel mare so I would expect him to be better later on but he won well so he deserves his chance.”

The 2013 ATC Sires Produce Stakes final field and barrier draw is due for release on Wednesday and will be published right here at so stay tuned.
