Summerhill have a plum sire in Willow Magic, the first Gr1 winning son of Dubawi to stand at stud in South Africa and getting off to a start at a farm that held the National Breeders Title for 9 consecutive years, 10 in total.
Stamping his yearlings with this handsome looks, good bone and muscular physique, Willow Magic has his first crop on offer in 2019.
Willow Magic (AUS), a glowing chestnut with flashy white legs and plenty of power in his hindquarters, is throwing outstanding types with strength and quality – sales inspectors have commented on the quality of his stock.
Trained by Sean Tarry in South Africa, the gutsy chestnut who was no stranger to Gr1 success, won the Gr1 SA Nursery and Gr2 Dingaans. He went on to further place in many of the countries leading Gr1 races including seconds in the Gr1 Gold Challenge and Gr1 Gold Medallion, third in the Gr1 Post Merchants and Gr1 Premiers Champions Stakes. He also placed in two Gr3’s.
The only British stallion to ever sire 100 Group winners in no time at all. Dubawi is the sire of 38 G1 winners and counting, with 16% Stakes winners and 10% Group winners, this makes him one of the world’s greatest stallions.
Willow Magic is out of a 3-time winner La Willow, by Tierce.
Tierce is described as being a great galloper and one of the fastest in Australia during his time. He is the sire of Gr1 winner Encounter – and his race record reads 16 starts, 11 wins with three places. He won three Gr1 races including the AJC Sires Produce, the Golden Slipper, the Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes, and won three Gr2’s and a Gr3. He further placed two Group races and earned over $2,2250 000 in stakes in the process.
