Flash Forward is by dual Horse of the Year Curlin out of the Miswaki mare Magical Flash.
In addition to being named Horse of the Year for 2007-08, Curlin earned $10 million while capturing such prestigious races as the Preakness and Breeders’ Cup Classic in 2007, and the 2008 Group 1 Dubai World Cup while on track.
Magical Flash never faced stakes company in her 11-race career, but has plenty of success herself in the breeding shed.
Among her offspring and descendants are Grade 3 winners Exfactor and Take the Ribbon; stakes scorers Bright Magic, Hot War and Flash Mash; and Grade 2-placed stakes vixen Glinda the Good.
Magical Flash is a half-sister to dual Grade 1 queen Magical Maiden, who is herself the dam of Grade 1 victress Miss Houidini and granddam of Grade 2 hero Papa Clem.
Magical Flash’s other siblings include Grade 2 winner Magical Mile and stakes diva Magic Sister.
Also of note in this female family is dual Irish champion filly Linaria and sire Avies Copy, who captured the Grade 2 Jersey Derby and finished third in the Kentucky Derby during 1987.
