My Magic Moment joins open winners

Email

Lawrence Goichman has another good one on his hands.

His homebred juvenile filly My Magic Moment won the $75,000 Missymooiloveyou Stakes last Sunday at Belmont Park on turf.

She became the 30th New York-bred to win an open stakes this year, and the fifth from the foal crop of 2006.

Goichman is also the breeder of the outstanding New York-breds J'ray and Read the Footnotes.

J'ray, nearing the $1 million mark in earnings at $922,371, is a multiple graded-stakes-winning turf female. Read the Footnotes, also a multiple graded stakes winner, is now a leading first-crop stallion in New York.

As for My Magic Moment, her class was underlined two days earlier in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, which was won by Maram. In her previous start, the Grade 3 Miss Grillo, My Magic Moment was third, beaten a neck by Maram.

My Magic Moment's victory in the Missymooiloveyou sent her career earnings to $97,830 with a record of 2-0-2 from 5 starts.

The race is named for the New York-bred winner of the Miss Grillo in 1992, and subsequently the dam of New York sire Ommadon.

My Magic Moment is by Forest Wildcat out of Sari, by Cozzene.

Sari, who raced in England, comes from an outstanding family.

Her dam, the Forty Niner mare Yamuna, is a half-sister to Eltish, a multiple group winner in England and Grade 1 placed in the United States.

She is also a half-sister to stakes winners Forest Gazelle, Souplesse, and Light Step.

This family also includes Contredance, winner of the Grade 1 Arlington-Washington Lassie, and Skimming, twice a winner of the Pacific Classic. Magic Moment was foaled at Keane Stud Operations LLC, in Amenia, N.Y.

Cribnote hit the board in both the Grade 1 Hopeful and Grade 1 Champagne, while Readthefootnotes placed in the Grade 3 Sapling Stakes.
