Magnus has followed up his double on Friday with a running double at Werribee on Sunday and is taking a serious run at the head of the Australian Second Season Sires’ chart by winners.
The stakes placed 3YO, How Swede It Is, got the party started at Mornington on Friday before the first starter, Prettyhappyaboutit, got the money at Cranbourne’s twilight meeting shortly after.
Two days on, the exciting 2YO Magnaro opened the program at Werribee with a comfortable win over 1110m, showing plenty of promise as he hit the line. Out of the Group winning Thunder Gulch mare, Vita, Magnaro was bred by Robert Crabtree and snapped up by Jason Warren at the 2012 Melbourne Premier from the Eliza Park draft.
Some 35 minutes later, Andrew Noblet’s, Samuelsson (bred by Eldon Park and from the Filante mare, Devil’s Tower) won confidently over the same journey at Werribee after resuming with a fourth in late December.
From a half sister to Group Two winner Great Delight, Samuelsson is also lightly raced and appears to have a bright future based on her effort at Werribee.
Meanwhile, Magnus now has 16 individual winners for 2012/13 and his progeny are again bound to be popular at the 2012 Melbourne Premier where he has 19 youngsters up for offer.
