Pedigree

The female line of Willow Magic consists of a sequence of tightly kin-bred mares. The significant female line ancestor appears to be the mare Belleva, who is kinbred 2x3x2. The kinbreeding involves the mares Lesbia (here dam of sire Stratford, the female line going to Miazzina in the SA context) and Scotch Gift (dam of influential sire Tetratema). Belleva’s daughter Oriens is close kin to Tudor Minstrel. Oriens’ daughter Victory Flight is kinbred 2x3x2 involving Rosy Legend (dam of Dante& Sayaijarao) and Selene (dam of Hyperion), both kin to Belleva. Victory Flight is close kin to female line ancestors Ajasco (in Jallad), Nun’s Story (in National Emblem, where she’s mated to a Tudor Minstrel line sire), A1 (in King of Kings). Victory Flight’s daughter Final Flight is kinbred 4x3x4 involving Queen of Essex, Rosy Legend and Belleva. Final Flight’s pedigree elements make her very close kin to Blushing Groom.

Willow Magic’s kinbreeding involves the mares Noblesse, Pantoufle and Victory Flight who are close kin. Noblesse (through stallion Deploy)  and Pantoufle are 4x4 in Zomaradah, the dam of Dubawi (Willow Magic’s sire). Noblesse’ female line also is the one of Rainbow Quest (by Blushing Groom) and Await The Dawn (who has a single SA crop born in 2014).
