Group 1 winning mare Magical Miss has died at Yarraman Park. The 14 year-old daughter of Danehill succumbed to a ruptured stomach.
“She was a terrific mare and it’s very sad to lose her,” Yarraman’s Harry Mitchell said. “She some ongoing issues after colic surgery last year.”
Magical Miss was bred by Bart Cummings and won the 2001 Thousand Guineas – Victorian Oaks double for Perth based couple Bill and Rhonda Wyllie. She had her first foal in 2005 and spent much of her breeding career at Yarraman Park.
