At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Vinery's Gr1-winning stallion Myboycharlie (Danetime-Dulceata, by Rousillon) added a Group race success when 4YO Australian-bred gelding Charles Road (Myboycharlie-Giant Mystique, by Giant's Causeway) was able to hold off the late challenge of the runner-up to score a narrow win in the $200,000 Gr3 City Of Auckland Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, defeating Five To Midnight & Comin'through. This was the second stakes victory for Charles Road who improved his record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Manawatu Classic) and 7 placings (including the Gr2 Rich Hill Mile & Gr2 ARC Avondale Guineas) from 15 starts for NZ$246,675 in earnings. Charles Road was a $90,000 purchase at the 2015 NZB Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Wentwood Grange. He is owned by David Archer who has tasted success previously with 10-time Gr1 winner (eight domestic Gr1s) and dual New Zealand Horse of the Year Mufhasa.
