Rock Magic Wins Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes

Wednesday, 4th November 2015

At Ascot in West Australia, Arrowfield Stud's multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 6YO gelding Rock Magic (Redoute's Choice-Rockabubble, by Bubble Gum Fellow) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Chris Gangemi in the $150,000 Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) for 3YO+, over 7YO gelding Watermans Bay (Eternity Range-Parisian Princess, by Ron Bon) & 4YO gelding Liberty's Gem (Statue of Liberty-All That Sparkles, by Rubiton). Rock Magic took his record to 10 wins (including the Listed Beaufine Stakes & Listed Farnley Stakes) and 5 placings from 26 starts for $468,916 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.
