A horse with a spectacular pedigree. His father is the legendary Frankel, the greatest racehorse of our time, well on the way to be the world’s most dominant sire with a career start that is eclipsing all the great sires of the past. It doesn’t stop there though, as Magical Land’s mother is Mistrusting, a feature race winning daughter of the mighty Shamardal, a thoroughbred of real Darley blood! Mistrusting is already a successful broodmare, having foaled the half sister to our horse, Althiqa. A fantastic race filly, she won two “Grade 1” races as well as having a very good record in the UAE, having won the Cape Verdi (Gr2) and running second in the Balanchine (Gr2).
Magical Land joins the team in good form, he was a winner at his last start in July at Newmarket, the capital of UK racing. He is a very consistent horse who managed to place in all of his first five starts. He ran below form at his penultimate run when travelling to Haydock but put the record straight when dropped back to a mile with a convincing win. He is rated 88 which is only just below the mark for the “carnival” meetings, which means we can target some of the weaker turf racing at Meydan, ideally picking up a win to raise his rating, then he would be able to run in some high stake carnival racing, at $88 000 each. If he does not picking up a win, there is still ample opportunity for him to run at Meydan during the season in races worth AED90 000 each. He was spotted and picked by our trainer Mike De Kock.
