World Traveler Magic Wand To Be Bred To Justify In Australia

Magic Wand, a mare that’s competed at the highest levels in seven different countries, will be bred to Triple Crown winner Justify at Coolmore’s Australia base, Racing Post reports.

A 5-year-old daughter of Galileo, Magic Wand was a €1,400,000 (US$1,562,820) purchase as a yearling, and she has carried the Coolmore colors to wins including the Group 1 MacKinnon Stakes in Australia, the G2 Ribblesdale Stakes during England’s Royal Ascot meet, and the G2 Lanwades Stud Stakes in Ireland.

Magic Wand has also finished second in Grade/Group 1 competition in the U.S., France, and Hong Kong, and she ran on this year’s Saudi Cup card. Her U.S. exploits included finishing second in two runnings of the G1 Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational Stakes and last year’s G1 Arlington Million, along with a third in the G1 Man o’ War Stakes.

She was retired in late October after developing a foot abscess while training toward a defense of her MacKinnon Stakes win in Australia.

Justify, a 5-year-old son of Scat Daddy, is in the midst of his second Southern Hemisphere breeding season in Australia, where he stands for an advertised fee of $66,000 Australian (US$43,282).
