Exciting Magnus debutant, I’m In Charge, certainly lived up to his name with a dominant performance in the Schweppes Maiden Plate (1200m) at Geelong today.
Sent out a $1.80 favourite, I’m In Charge raced near the lead throughout before zooming clear over the final stages to score by 3.3 lengths.
Trained by Robert Smerdon and raced by Price Bloodstock Management Ltd, the Magnus colt was sold through the Eliza Park draft at the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions.
Bred by Robert Crabtree, who also raced his sire, I’m In Charge is out of the Redoute’s Choice mare, Obbligato, a daughter of the Sydney Group winning 2YO, Postage Due – in turn a half sister to Caulfield Guineas winner Copperama and closely related to dual Oaks winners Danendri and Faint Perfume.
Eliza Park also sold a full sister to I’m In Charge at this year’s Adelaide Magic Millions.
I’m In Charge is pictured below as a yearling.
