Leading Victorian trainer, Tony Noonan, appears to have unearthed a very good sprinter in the shape of Paganini’s Soul, a winner at Caulfield on Saturday (5 December).
Bred and part-owned by the ever astute, Roger Langley, Paganini’s Soul has now raced on four occasions for three wins (2 in the city) and a head second at Moonee Valley.
Paganini’s Soul is out of the Magic of Sydney mare, Magic Bow, multiple stakes placed in New Zealand and a half sister to Queensland stakes winners Plume D’or Veille and Strike Sparks.
Eliza Park will consign a Magic Albert half brother to Paganini’s Soul at the 2010 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale and the way the 3YO is going, they’ll be beating a path to the stable door.
Cultural hounds will already know this but Niccolo Paganini was an Italian violinist of the early 19th century, famous for his caprice in A minor, Op. 1 No. 24. That said, it’s not a tune you’d find on many iPods at Eliza Park!
