Willow Magic has had nine places, four of them in second place, and two winners to date from 10 runners.
Willow Magic was trained by Sean Tarry, and the first Gr1 winning son of Dubawi at stud in South Africa.
Sean Tarry has another Willow Magic running in this weekends Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship for 2yo fillies – Dubawi Princess, a half-sister to several multiple winners. She is Willow Magic’s first winner, who has also placed 3 times from 5 starts.
