Magic is back! New shoes on yesterday and a little time on the walker just to get him settled back in to the yard. He’s spent his summer holiday since May on our ‘sister pasture’ over the hill in Blockley, enjoying the spring grass and hanging out with some of the other holiday boys.
For members that don’t know anything about Magic’s breeding, he is by Mr Medici and out of super winning mare Lady Myfanwy. She won 35 and was placed 32 times from 91 races in her career pointing and chasing. His sire won 5 and was placed in 16 races on the flat, so here’s hoping it’s a winning combination. Bred by Myfanwy Miles in Wales, Magic came to us as a 4 year old a little over a year ago. We loved him immediately, he’s a real character – quirky, sometimes opinionated and he jumps for fun. He spent last winter in pre-training and schooling, we hoped to get a run late spring but the weather wasn’t on our side. Kate bought him earlier this year as we wanted him for the Club and Myfanwy was kind enough to let him go!
We will follow his progress through training to getting fit for racing in October when the point to point season kicks off. We hope to have some fun days out for members going pointing but the dream is to go under rules, we can’t wait to see how he goes.
