Sigley to Take over Training of Magnifisio

After a below average run in the Robert Sangster Stakes last time out connections of smart Perth mare Magnifisio have transferred her from the care of Jim Taylor to rival horseman Vaughn Sigley.

With a long term plan to the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) in WA this November, five-year-old Magnus mare Magnifisio won that same race last year when prepared by Taylor.

To date she has enjoyed a dozen wins from 25 starts for over $1.23 million in prize money but the 2014 Winterbottom was her latest turf triumph.

She’s had two runs this time in when fourth to Daytona Grey in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville on April 18 and then her disappointing 12th to former Blue Diamond Stakes winner Miracles Of Life in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) back at the track on May 2.

While she was beaten under five lengths in her final run for Taylor, it wasn’t enough for her owners to keep the mare with her current trainer.

Her part-owner Alan MacAlister already has the Lark Hill-based Sigley, who takes over the preparation of Magnifisio, training Statue Of Liberty four-year-old Dawn Approach who was last seen winning the Listed Northam Toyota Stakes (1100m).

He is now hoping the move will reignite the form of Maginifisio who told The West this week that the galloper was now back home in Western Australia after her trip east to Adelaide for the autumn raid.

“Magnifisio has arrived home from Adelaide,” MacAlister said.

“She was galloped on slightly in the Sangster, I wouldn’t expect her next campaign to be affected.

“We’re keen for her to have a change of scenery at Vaughn’s property and she will again be set for the Winterbottom.”

Along with last year’s Winterbottom, the other wins of note on Magnifisio’s record with Taylor include the Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) at Roma Park last May and the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m).

She is likely to follow a similar Perth Summer Racing Carnival campaign at the end of this year as she did last season, defending her title in both the Lee Steere and the Winterbottom looking to add to her ace record in WA.
