Bush Hill stallion Flying The Flag’s full-sister Magical made all the running in the Gr2 Kilboy Estate Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.
She is a previous Gr2 winner and lost a Gr1 by a whisker to Happily previously.
Winner of the Debutante Stakes at this level on this course last summer, the Aidan O’Brien-trained filly had been well-beaten on heavy ground on her only previous start in 2018, but got back on track with a solid display.
Ryan Moore made his intentions clear from the start by taking Magical to the front from the outset and the 5-4 favourite found extra when tackled by the four-year-old I’m So fancy in the final furlong to score by two and three-quarter lengths.
Flying The Flag stands at Bush Hill Stud, his first crop will be yearlings on 1 August.
His first crop have impressed with plenty of quality and substance.
