Duke Of Magnus
3 year old Chestnut Colt
Sire: Magnus Dam: Kusha
Trainer's Name: Shea Eden
This ripper colt is all muscle and all speed. Shea and bloodstock agent Lenny Russo, the buyer of G1 hero Malaguerra, both agreed that this horse was one of the best value buys in the entire Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.
UPDATE SEP 1 - "Can't fault him, I'd be surprised if he didn't go early given how sharp he is." That is Shea's assessment of this young speedster as he progresses through his work at Cranbourne. Give us a call and find out just how well he's going.
By a stallion that continues to churn out city and stakes class winners, from a mare that has already produced five winners and hails from a world class family, this colt is the real deal. Such is the confidence around the colt that the breeder bought back in immediately after the hammer fell.
Shea said "I had to bring this colt home, he's a runner. There is no better judge of the Magnus breed than Lenny Russo and he is adamant that this is one of the best examples of the stallions progeny that he has seen this season at the sales. He looks and moves like an early going type and I'm so happy to be training him."
Peter Moody said "Another horse that shows the qualities of the Magnus line. Short, strong coupled running type of colt out of a mare that has had 5 winners from 6 races. Magnus is just hitting winners every day of the week doing a hell of a job as a stallion and this colt is no exception to that rule. Very powerful, very strong and well put together”.
