Rock Magic Wins Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes

Monday, 31st October 2016

At Ascot in Perth, Arrowfield Stud's multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 7YO gelding Rock Magic (Redoute's Choice-Rockabubble, by Bubble Gum Fellow) scored by 0.75 length for trainer Chris Gangemi in the $150,000 Gr3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1000m) for 3YO+, over 7YO gelding Smoko (Snitzel-London Lights, by Bletchingly) & 5YO gelding Battle Hero (Stratum-Fromm, by O'Reilly). Rock Magic improved his record to 12 wins (including the Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes, Listed Idyllic Prince Stakes, Listed Beaufine Stakes & Listed Farnley Stakes) and 9 placings (including the Listed Belmont Newmarket) from 33 starts for $689,016 earnings. Formerly prepared by Paul Messara, Rock Magic was originally retained to race by his breeder Arrowfield Stud when passed in for $90,000 ($200,000 reserve) at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney.
