Lot 11 – MAGICAL JAVA (4yr old chestnut filly by Silvano) – MR75
Bought at the 2017 Cape Premier Yearling Sale for R700 000 from Maine Chance Farms Stud as LOT 132
She was a gorgeous looking yearling with a great action by a Champion sire and out of a Gr.1 sprinting mare, Mocha Java. After the sale, she lost a lot of condition so her training was delayed by a year to give her a chance to grow which she continued to do when in training with Dennis Drier. A winner of her third career start, she was then given time off to mature into her growing frame and only now does it look as if she has strengthened up. When tried over more ground and back on her preferred turf surface, she looks set for a good summer. Currently stabled with Dennis Drier, she will join Alec Laird on Tuesday, 3 September for viewing.
