Godswood, by Blue Sky Thoroughbreds resident sire Willow Magic, produced his eighth career win for breeders Bush Hill Stud on the weekend at Turffontein.
Out of a Jallad mare Bluebell Wood from the family of multiple Gr1 and 14-time winning Roland’s Song as well as 8-time and Gr1 winner Contador, the gelding started his career with Paul Peter and is owned by Barend Botes, trained in partnership between Botes and Mr Vosloo.
He defeated a flashy Pinnacle field in the process under Siyanda Sisobo, carrying feather weight and beating the likes of Graded Stakes winners Maharanee, Under Your Spell, Smorgasbord and Eden Roc amongst the field, by over a length.
Willow Magic has a reputation for producing multiple repeat winners and his runners have earned almost R2-million in stakes this season.
Bush Hill Stud are on 32% winners to runners for the season.
