Hill 'n' Dale Farms announced today that longtime client Josham Farms and Yvonne Schwabe's mare, Decor, foaled champion Good Magic's first foal. By Declaration of War and out of stakes winner and multiple stakes producer Classic Neel, Decor is a half sister to graded stakes winner and Grade 1 performer Conquest Tsunami, from the family of Delaware Oaks winner Nickel Classic.
A session-topping million-dollar yearling, Good Magic was named Eclipse champion 2-year-old male after an effortless win in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1). On his road to the Kentucky Derby, he captured the Toyota Blue Grass (G2), eventually finishing second to Justify on the first Saturday in May. He notched his second Grade 1 victory in the $1,000,00 Haskell Invitational at Monmouth.
Bred in Kentucky by Stonestreet Thoroughbred Holdings and owned by Stonestreet and e Five Racing and trained by Chad Brown, Good Magic earned $2,945,000 racing at 2 and 3.
“We had a gorgeous Good Magic filly last night at 9:50 p.m. She has a great frame with lots of substance, solid bone, with a very pretty head,” said Yvonne Schwabe. “An excellent foal, we are delighted.”
“Yvonne and Teddy have been close personal friends for a very long time,” said John G. Sikura, president of Hill 'n' Dale Farms. “We have never taken their support of our stallions for granted and it couldn't be more fitting that we announce that Curlin's next important son, Good Magic, sired his first foal in Canada at their farm.”
