Horse Description:

MAGNUS has continued to rack up the winners around Australia and Ellerton Zahra Racing is thrilled to offer an opportunity to get involved with this lovely colt by the ever-reliable stallion.

MAGNUS was a Group 1-winning son of Golden Slipper winner FLYING SPUR that has done a terrific job at stud in Victoria, producing the Group 1 winners GREAT SHOT, MAGNIFISIO and the brilliant sprinter MALGUERRA. The stallion, who hails from the same family as BLACK CAVIAR has also sired the two-year-old stakes winner ENBIHAAR as well as the recent Group 3 winner PRINCESS OF QUEENS.

This colt is out of the unraced BLEVIC mare Berry Bellagio who has also thrown an unraced colt by FIGHTING SUN. This superb colt’s grand-dam MAGIC HEAVEN was a brilliant two-year-old in Perth, winning at Listed level as a two-year-old and producing the stakes-placed juvenile Berry Delicious while this yearling is also closely related to the WA Sires’ Produce stakes winner LORDHELMPERUN.

BLEVIC is also the damsire of Golden Slipper and Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner PHELAN READY while a daughter of the sire also produced the Group 1 weight-for-age winner ALCOPOP as well as the two-year-old stakes winner PELLIZOTTI.

Two-year-old class runs all the way through this colt’s pedigree while he is a son of one of the most reliable sires in Victoria in MAGNUS so will give his owners great value for money.
