When you’re named after a seventh century Scandinavian King with a Latin derivation of “great” then you must feel some entitlement and just a little pressure. And why not, when your mum is a G2 Blue Diamond Prelude winner and your brother and two of your sisters are stakeswinners.

MAGNUS was certainly born into a royal family. Dashing Gr2 winning half-brother WILANDER, G2 Magic Night Stakes-winning half-sister SCANDIVA, and Listed winning sister ARCTIC FLIGHT. This is also the family of the immortal, unbeaten, 15 TIME G1 WINNER BLACK CAVIAR and her freakish 4-time Gr1 winning brother (now highly commercial sire) ALL TOO HARD.

And did MAGNUS deliver on the track! A G1 winner of the Galaxy in Sydney and G2 winner of the Age Classic at Flemington, he was also runner-up in the G1 Newmarket Handicap, G1 Oakleigh Plate and G1 Lightning Stakes (in TRACK RECORD TIME).

His stud record, with only seven crops to race, is equally impressive. A lofty 70% W/R, including 14 SW and 6 GW for PROGENY PRIZEMONEY OF $27 MILLION. The interesting part about his data is that his best performers are slightly skewed towards colts, with an even more imposing 73% WINNING PERCENTAGE. His top performers include G1 Darley Classic winner MALAGUERRA and G1 Winterbottom Stakes winner MAGNIFISIO. Importantly, MAGNUS, like himself, produces early precocity. G3 WINNING MISS PROMISCUITY, with 7 wins from 1000m – 1200M is one of his better advertisements of juvenile speed.

Crucially, this colt from SO SUBTLE features a NICK WHICH HAS A PROVEN STRIKE RATE WITH MAGNUS. So far MAGNUS has produced 3 WINNERS FROM 4 RUNNERS from RUBITON MARES for 14 WINS and $399,000 IN PRIZEMONEY. Flying the flag for this nick is HOT RUBY with 6 wins and 13 placings from 47 starts.

This colt has a pedigree blessed with natural speed and adaptability. Second dam Adulate is a half-sister to G2 Ascot Vale Stakes winning gelding SPARGO. She is also the dam of 3 very talented gallopers in Flyingconi (6 wins), Soft Sell (5 wins) and Mr Cooley (10 wins). It has produced a G2 winning sprinter-miler in ADRAANITO, a G3 Bunbury Cup winner in CELESTIAL SHOW and Listed MARIBYRNONG TRIAL winner in the flying filly FASHION VICTIM.

Topping off what is an exciting mating is a sex balanced cross of Champion galloper and Champion Sire FLYING SPUR.
