Malibu Moon--Lady Dora, by Lord at War
Despite breaking her maiden and taking an allowance on the main track, the dam of Magical Moon spent the remainder of her career competing on turf, where the Lord at War mare Lady Dora captured a Grade 3 contest and placed in a Grade 2 and two other Grade 3 events.
Magical Moon’s sire, Malibu Moon, never got a chance to strut his stuff on track but has more than made up for that in the breeding shed.
The 16-year-old stallion made just two starts, but immediately hit pay dirt in the breeding shed with Grade 2 winner Perfect Moon from his first crop in 2001. His second crop was even better, showcasing champion Declan’s Moon and Grade 1 heroine Malibu Mint.
Malibu Moon is also the sire of such Grade 1-winning star fillies as Life at Ten, Devil May Care and Ask the Moon.
Lady Dora also had early success in the breeding shed, foaling stakes-placed Law n Dora, and is herself a daughter of Grade 3-placed multiple stakes queen Doradoradora.
This is the same female family as Gay Sailorette, second in the 1967 Kentucky Oaks.
