O'Brien buzzing after 'unbelievable' Magical wins Champion Stakes Posted on Saturday 19th October 2019 @ 18.10

Aidan O'Brien feels Magical is "unbelievable" after the four-year-old claimed the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.

It was a quick turnaround for the daughter of Galileo after she finished fifth in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on October 6 but it did not seem to matter after a superb display at the Berkshire venue.

In testing conditions, the trainer's son, Donnacha O'Brien, handled things perfectly, travelling well before moving ahead in the straight.

Addeybb was Magical's closest challenger but could not get back on terms to finish second, with Japanese mare Deirdre third.

It was O'Brien's first success in the prestigious contest and he feels that Magical was bred to win the race.

"She is just incredible, but she is classy as well. A mile and a half probably stretches her, although she has won over that, a mile and a quarter is really her," he said.

"She's by Galileo which makes her special, they don't know when to stop. They never hold a grudge and mentally they are unbelievable. She is the most unbelievable mare I've seen."
