Breeding & Racing were right on the ball with its write up of Magnus in this morning’s newsletter:
With turf aficionados salivating at the forthcoming racetrack return of world champion sprinter Black Caviar, yearling buyers following the exploits of 2nd crop sires will have noted the performance of young stallion Magnus. Like Black Caviar’s sire Bel Esprit, an Eliza Park resident, Gr1 AJC The Galaxy winner Magnus is a half-brother to the dam of Black Caviar. To date this season Magnus is the sire of 18 individual winners, one clear of Hard Spun & Casino Prince. In addition, his 44 percent winners-to-runners ratio is marginally second only to Host. Magnus, who will be represented by debutant 2YO gelding Feral Cowboy in tomorrow's Listed Chairman's Handicap at Caulfield plus Platinum Kingdom in the Listed Dunedin Guineas in New Zealand, has 19 yearlings catalogued for March’s Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.
