Debut Stakes-Winner for Fupeg

Winning a stakes race on debut is never easy, but Anytime Magic (2g Fusaichi Pegasus x Sambica Classica, by Cat Thief ) made it look easy when cruising clear to win the $54,650 Lost in the Fog Stakes at Golden Gate. Trained by Robert Hess Sr, Anytime Magic showed good speed throughout before surging clear to win the five furlong dash by two and a quarter lengths. A $30,000 Keeneland September Yearling purchase, Anytime Magic is the second winner, but first stakes-winner for Sambuca Classica, a daughter of Grade I placed stakes-winner In Her Glory. Anytime Magic is the 59th stakes-winner worldwide for Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus.
