Willow Magic’s first winner came yesterday at Turffontein for owners Messrs M A Currie, C N Francis, B G Gardner, Jarryd Lahoud, Allan F Peters, Larry Pogir, Craig Zoghby, Mrs BMA Lahoud & Sean Tarry Racing (Pty) Ltd, trained by Sean Tarry.
Dubawi Princess was born, raised and consigned to the the 2019 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, where she sold for R320 000 to Sean Tarry. Interestingly, its an all Bush Hill affair as the dam of Dubawi Princess, Millennium Reign, is also a Bush Hill bred.
Willow Magic appears to be already clicking with the female line – as Magicallee – “Willow’s” first runner, finished second on debut for Bush Hill Stud. She is out of Lee Danzig – the dam of Millennium Reign.
This is a strong female line that has produced multiple winners – including the Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge leader Bint El Malak, her full brother Malak El Moolook (3rd in the Gr2 Gauteng Guineas), Reign As Kings, Kings Command and Reign As Kings.
Willow Magic, the first Gr1 winning son of Dubawi to stand at stud in South Africa, trained by Sean Tarry, has now had 6 runs for 1 win and 2 2nd places. A magnificent chestnut with powerful hindquarters and top line, he stands at Summerhill Stud.
