Lido Magic

For her first foal, Illusionist had been bred in 2009 to the incomparable Somebeachsomewhere. Lido Magic was born in 2010. As a two-year-old in 2012, Lido Magic got a taste of racing. Although she was born with natural skills and instincts, she lacked race enthusiasm, going a slow 2:08. A healthy horse with good feet, Lido would have made it to the track with some stronger urging; instead my husband, Dave, chose another route. With excellent bloodlines, a solid build, and good conformation, Lido Magic held promise as a broodmare.

In February 2017, Lido Magic gave birth to a filly sired by He’s Watching. We named her Shes Magic. One year later in 2018, with the same sire, Lido Magic brought another beautiful foal into the world. We called her Some Lucky Magic. In 2019, Lido Magic foaled out once more. Like her mother Lusi, Lido gave birth to a son after consecutive fillies. Sired by Artspeak, Magical Arthur joined our family in February 2019. After Arthur, Lido took a break from her broodmare role.

In late December 2019, Lido Magic was sold. She moved out to PEI to resume her broodmare career.

In February of 2021, Lido Magic gave birth to a beautiful colt. Lido’s owners from PEI named the baby, TheSilverDiesel, after the sire, Silverhill Shadow. Images sent from PEI showed a thin Lido Magic beside her beautiful new foal. TheSilverDiesel was entered in the Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale to be held in October of 2022. Very soon his racing career, under new owners, will commence. The present whereabouts and condition of Lido Magic is unknown.
