Lido Magic

For her first foal, Illusionist had been bred in 2009, to the incomparable Somebeachsomewhere. We chose Magic after Illusionist. Lido, as she was called for short, means, “beach” in Italian. As a two-year-old in 2012, Lido got a taste of racing.  Although she was born with natural skills and instincts, she outwardly lacked race enthusiasm, going a slow 2:05. A healthy horse with good feet, Lido would have made it to the track with some stronger urging; instead Dave chose another route. With excellent bloodlines, a solid build, and good conformation, Lido held promise as a broodmare. Sired by He’s Watching in 2016, Lido gave birth to a filly, in February 2017, named She’s Magic.
