Champion German Mare Has 1st Foal
In European breeding news, Germany's 2009 Horse-Of-The-Year Night Magic (Sholokhov-Night Woman, by Monsun) "delivered her first foal in Japan on February 23" reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. The foal is a colt by 7-time Gr1-winning Japanese sire Deep Impact (Sunday Silence-Wind In Her Hair, by Alzao) and is owned by Katsumi Yoshida's Northern Farm which purchased Night Magic privately when she was passed in at the Arqana December Breeding Stock sale for €800,000. Trained by Wolfgang Figge, the dual Gr1-winning & 4-times Gr1-placed Night Magic won 7 of 20 starts, including the Gr1 Baden-Baden Grosser Preis von Baden & Gr1 Dusseldorf Preis der Diana, for earnings of €791,270.
