Horse Description:

MAGNUS is a son of FLYING SPUR and the high-class speedster SCANDINAVIA that was good enough to record a Group 1 win in a golden age of Australian sprinters.

MAGNUS won The Galaxy in 2007 to give him his just deserts for his raft of terrific performances in which he pushed super gallopers WEEKEND HUSSLER, TAKEOVER TARGET, MISS ANDRETTI and APACHE CAT to the limit.

Magnus has done a terrific job at stud, producing consistent and durable types, including Group 1 winner MAGNIFISIO and Group 3 winners MAGNAPAL, MISS PROMISCUITY, PRINCE OF BROOKLYN & MALAGUERRA among 11 stakes winners, and of course our very own stakes placed Whistle Baby.

The colt is out of BABIETA, a daughter of the top imported racehorse JEUNE, a four-time Group 1 winner that claimed a Melbourne Cup before a successful stud career.

JEUNE is the damsire of Group 1 winners HAPPY ARCHER and ERTIJAAL while Ellerton Zahra Racing enjoyed success with the progeny of one of his daughters with the Group 1-placed SHARNEE ROSE.
