Magnifisio Wins Listed Northam Stakes
At Northam in Western Australia, Eliza Park's Gr1 Galaxy-winning stallion Magnus (Flying Spur-Scandinavia, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 4YO mare Magnifisio (Magnus-Ifestio, by Key Business) scored by 1.5-lengths for trainer Jim Taylor in the $125,000 Listed Northam Stakes (1100m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Travinator (Mosayter-Revilo, by Tribu) & 7YO gelding Honest Lies (O'Reilly-Irish Lies, by Casual Lies). This was the third stakes success for Magnifisio who took her record to 9 wins (Listed RS Crawford Stakes & Listed Summer Scorcher) and 6 placings from 17 starts for $488,500 earnings. Magnifisio was purchased by Alan Macalister for $80,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Rangeview Stud.
