But Peter is also a ‘family man’ and is remembered for putting the polish on Group One winning sprinter, MAGNUS, a close relation to his star mare, Black Caviar.
The superior sprinting entire of a generation which included Takeover Target, Weekend Hussler, Miss Andretti, Apache Cat and Gold Edition, Magnus won the Group One The Galaxy and the Age Classic (now Group One) and figured in the first four in 10 Group One events (in Australia, England and Singapore).
Magnus hails from the multiple Group winning blue hen mare, Scandinavia (by Snippets), who has also produced Group Two winner Wilander and Helsinge … the dam of world champion sprinter, Black Caviar.
Standing at Eliza Park at a fee of $22,000, Magnus (below) has covered two first class books of mares (and is in the midst of a third) with the first of his yearlings appearing at major Australasian yearling sales in 2011.
