2015 Robert Sangster – Goodwood Double for Magnifisio

Perth trainer Jim Taylor and connections have turned down lucrative eastern state offers to buy Winterbottom Stakes winning mare Magnifisio who is set to head to Adelaide this autumn to target the Robert Sangster StakesThe Goodwood 2015 double.

The Bullsbrook-based Magnus five-year-old has been attracting offers of purchase from breeders across the country following her neck win over Watermans Bay in the $755,000 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot on November 22.

That was her 12th career win and her second on the trot during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival following a win by the same margin in the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) two weeks before her Group 1 victory.

An ultra-consistent force in the sprint races around Western Australia since her debut at Belmont Park in July of 2012, Magnifisio’s other most notable victory was in last year’s Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m).

Her total prize money earned now sits at an impressive $1.23 million, the mare snapped up for $75,000 from the 2011 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale by owner Alan MacAlister.

Her latest run was on December 6 when second to Watermans Bay who turned the table on her in the Group 3 AJ Scahill Stakes (1400m) when not good enough to match the late-closing winner.

Instead of being sold off to one of the rival interstate interests, Magnifisio is back in training as she prepares for more Group 1 glory this time in South Australia.

“Prominent interstate studs are making offers for her,” MacAlister told Racenet this week.

“She’s being sought as a feature sprints prospect who can later be a valuable broodmare. But she’s remaining in our ownership.”

Taylor and MacAlister are looking at both the $400,000 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on May 2 and the $500,000 Group 1 The Darley Goodwood (1200m) a fortnight later at Morphettville Racecourse for the mare who will shoot for the double last achieved by the mighty Black Caviar in 2012.

Another classy mare to target the late Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival double is the John Sadler-trained last start Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) winner from Melbourne Cup week Vain Queen.
