Magic City

Magic City joined us towards the end of 2015 having won three times at Goodwood and also at Epsom, Newbury and Kempton Park.

Magic City was purchased from the sales to run for owners Andy Turton, John Blackburn, Linda Folwell and David Swales. He won his first race for his new owners at Newcastle in March 2017 when he romped home in a competitive handicap to score with ease. He was a winner again in the mud at Wetherby in June 2017 and later the same month gave apprentice Harrison Shaw a winner on his 21st birthday at Ripon!!

A horse that is known for winning on special occasions, in May 2018 he gave amateur rider Alex Fielding his first winner on the flat when he came home in front at York.

Magic City was retired in September 2019 and he has since been rehomed near Beverley. He will enjoy his retirement with Danielle Basnett at Church Farm Hunters. Danielle says that Magic City enjoys watching the hunters go out every morning, but now back to full fitness he will be going out himself and he'll have to leave his warm and cosy box!
