The story of the miracle horse, Magical Albert, added another chapter Thursday evening at Woodbine Racetrack as the miracle horse celebrated his first ever victory.

As outlined in the award-winning TROT Magazine story Survival: The Fight of a Lifetime, Magical Albert has been a fighter since before he left his dam’s womb.

Lucky to be alive – let along racing - the four-year-old son of Mach Three-Illusionist was treated to a second-over trip by Jonathan Drury in his $14,000 conditioned assignment at the Rexdale oval on Monday evening, and the gelding wasn’t about to let it go to waste. He swung wide coming off the final turn and used a :29.4 closing quarter to prevail by a head over Devils Peak in 1:55.4.

Anthony Beaton trains Magical Albert for owner David Lumsden of Ancaster, Ont. Lumsden’s celebrated bigger wins as an owner, but there’s no disputing he hasn’t celebrated a more meaningful victory than the one with this inspirational homebred.
