Flying The Flag’s younger full sister, already a Gr1 winner, added the Gr3 Alleged Stakes this afternoon at Naas to her impressive winners honour roll. It is the fifth victory in this race for trainer Aiden O’Brien who also trained Flying The Flag.
She left the colts behind her, with Gr1 Irish St Leger winner Flag Of Honour finishing second, and Gr1 Irish Derby winner Latrobe in third, making easy work of the soft turf to win by over four and a half lengths.
Magical is a full sister as well to three time Gr1 winner and Cartier Horse Of The Year, Rhododendron.
Magical won the British Champions Fillies’ and Mares’ Stakes (Gr 1)like her older sister, in 2018, as well as the Kilboy Estates Stakes (Gr 2), with the Debutante Stakes (Gr 2) in 2017.
She also placed close seconds in the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Turf (Gr 1) to the great Enable by under a length, and a whisker second in the Moyglare Stud Stakes (Gr 1) to Happily.
Well done to Bush Hill Stud.
