Very impressive performance at Belmont today by Magnus 2YO, Magnifisio, scoring by three lengths in the Westspeed Nursery 2YO Handicap over 1200m.
Stepping out for only the second time, after coming home solidly for fourth over 1000m at Belmont a fortnight ago, Magnifisio is Magnus’ first runner out west and one that they’ll definitely remember!
Trained by Jim Taylor, who originally put the polish on Hay List before he was sent east, Magnifisio is clearly going places and should easily make her way up through the grades.
Magnifisio is Magnus’ sixth individual winner (joining the likes of stakes winner Platinum Kingdom and stakes placed trio – Magnus Reign, Imprimis and How Swede It Is) and is out of the stakes winning Key Business mare Ifestio.
Bred in WA by Rangeview Stud, Magnifisio was sold at last year’s Perth Magic Millions for $80,000 and is closely related to a number of stakes winners.
