Rhododendron Sister Wins Debut

Thursday, 10th August 2017

Magical, a 2YO sister to Gr1 Fillies' Mile winner and English 1,000 Guineas & English Oaks placegetter Rhododendron, got off the mark at the second time of asking when scoring by a head over Mary Tudor & Active Approach in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden (8 furlongs) at Cork in Ireland on Tuesday, reports Thoroughbred Daily News. "She was going to go to Goodwood during the week, but it got very bad there," Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O'Brien said. "She is babyish and green still and won't mind anything from seven to a mile." Magical and Rhododendron are both by Galileo out of the Pivotal mare Halfway To Heaven, winner of the Gr1 Nassau Stakes, Gr1 Irish One Thousand Guineas, and Gr1 Sun Chariot Stakes. This is also the family of former West Australian shuttler Verglas (IRE).
