Breed the best to the best and hope for the best is an ideology that has been knocking around racing for years. The reasoning certainly bore fruit regarding the Aidan O’Brien-trained four-year-old filly, Magical.
She is by Galileo, who needs no introduction, out of Halfway To Heaven and is a clear case of breeding the best to the best, with a smashing outcome. At Naas last Saturday, Magical made an excellent seasonal debut when taking a Group 3, giving every indication she is one to follow this season.
We know Galileo was a great racehorse and continues to be a phenomenal stallion, but most will surely forgotten just how good Halfway To Heaven was.
She was also trained by O’Brien, winning four of her nine races. The daughter of Pivotal ran twice as a two-year-old, and seven times at three, before being retired.
