Westcourt Magic was an interesting character. He had one gear and that was flat out.

He was owned by my good friend, the late Ken Hodgson and his wife Judith, and named after their business, the Westcourt Group.

Westcourt Magic won five times as a two year old including the Listed Rosebery Trophy at Ayr.

At three he won the Listed Field Marshal Stakes at Haydock and then four of his last five wins came at the Roodeye at Chester where he loved to gallop full tilt around the tight curves.

Westcourt Magic was a frustrating horse for whoever led him up at the races, as he was always walked to the start as he would bolt as soon as he was released, thankfully it was usually only five furlongs.
