She is Magic!

“The pace was a little bit of a concern,” said winning trainer Arnaud Delacour. “With a five-horse field, you never know what’s going to happen, but it didn’t change her running style as that’s how she likes to race. Javier  timed it perfectly and she came with a good kick.”

On a potential start in the GI Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf Nov. 7: “We’ll see. One race at a time. The Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth  is in 21 days and might be coming back too quick. We’ll let her tell us.”

“I really like the way she did it,” jockey Javier Castellano said. “Watching the replays, it seemed like she could be a little bit keen. She always seemed to break well out of the gate and get good forward position in Europe. Today, she broke OK. I tried to cover up a little bit. It was her first time in the country and a mile and a quarter and you always have to save something for the end. She sat beautifully behind the speed. She had a nice rhythm. When I asked her turning for home at the quarter pole, she just took off really well. I was very excited to see the way she did it today.”
