Rock Magic Wins Listed Beaufine Stakes
At Belmont in West Australia, Arrowfield Stud's Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Rock Magic (Redoute's Choice-Rockabubble, by Bubble Gum Fellow) scored by 0.75-length for trainer Chris Gangemi in the $100,000 Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m) for 3YO+, over 3YO gelding Rebel King (Universal Ruler-Rebel Sister, by Falbrav) & 4YO gelding Mad Brad (Zentsov Street-Belgrave Square, by Octagonal). Rock Magic took his record to 9 wins (including the Listed Farnley Stakes) and 4 placings from 21 starts for $356,816 earnings. Formerly prepared Scone-based trainer Paul Messara, Rock Magic was 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.
