Willow Weaves The Magic

New sire off the mark - Willow Magic

Summerhill’s Australian-bred stallion Willow Magic produced his first winner at Turffontein on Saturday when his Klawervlei bred daughter Dubawi Princess won at her third start for trainer Sean Tarry and apprentice Luke Ferraris,

Dubawi Princess is a first crop daughter of Dubawi’s first Gr1 winning son to stand here. She races for owners Messrs M A Currie, C N Francis, B G Gardner, Jarryd Lahoud, Allan F Peters, Larry Pogir, Craig Zoghby, Mrs BMA Lahoud & Sean Tarry Racing (Pty) Ltd.

She won the 1160m Maiden Juvenile Plate and also banked the BSA Value Added Bonus of R60 000.

Willow Magic has now had 6 runners for a win and two second cheques.

The Klawervlei-bred chestnut was raised and consigned by Bush Hill Stud to the 2019 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, where she sold for R320 000 to Sean Tarry  – who trained Willow Magic to win the Gr1 SA Nursery and Gr2 Dingaans.

Interestingly, the  dam of Dubawi Princess, Millennium Reign, is a Bush Hill bred.

KZN breeders report that Willow Magic appears to be already clicking with the female line – as Magicallee – the big chestnut’s first runner, finished second on debut for Bush Hill Stud. She is out of Lee Danzig – the dam of Millennium Reign.

This is a strong female line that has produced multiple winners – including the Hollywoodbets Sizzling Summer Challenge leader Bint El Malak, her full brother Malak El Moolook (3rd in the Gr2 Gauteng Guineas), Kings Command and Reign As Kings.

Willow Magic is a magnificent chestnut with powerful hindquarters. An  A$ 40 000 purchase as a yearling, he was bred by Rothwell Park of New South Wales and is a son of world champion Dubawi out of the thrice winning Tierce mare, La Willow.

He stands at Summerhill Stud. His fee is available on application.

    I was intrigued to see that Willow Magic obtained the best ever sales prices for a freshman sire.

    I could not understand what made this sire so much more attractive than unproved sires of yesteryear.

    I did some digging. The high priced were unwarranted.

    The purchasers were either connected to the vendors of the progeny on sales or connected to the shareholders in Willow Magic.

    For an unproved sire to have a covering fee on asking is a red flag for me.

    I will most definitely wait a few years for the progeny to answer all my questions.

    Unless the progeny start performing, the name Willow Magic remains the name of high scoring cricket bat.
