3yo gelding Magnorum heads to the paddock this week for a 7-day freshen up before potentially targeting the $250,000 Inglis Dash at Flemington on 20 January 2018. The talented son of Magnus was a brave second over 1100m on Werribee Cup and the run was enough to prompt David and Coral Feek to set aside the 3yo in preparation for the lucrative sales restricted race.
'He'll have a week off in the paddock before a solid week of work on the water walker. That then gives me four weeks to get him ready for the Inglis Dash'. Said David Feek on Monday morning.
'He ran very well against a potentially top 3yo and he'll only improve off that as it was only his second race start'.
'It's an Inglis Sales restricted race and the prize money is well worth considering. He is a big strong type that should comfortably handle the Flemington straight'.
Magnorum was well supported at Werribee and he almost achieved what only 7% of runners manage to do, winning at their next start after coming out of Maiden grade. However, it wasn't to be, after leading the small field well in to the straight the son of Magnus ran a brave second for Michael Walker behind another up and coming 3yo in Onehundred Percent.
Magnorum, the 3yo son of local Victorian stallion MAGNUS was a $75,000 purchase at the 2016 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale and was selected personally by David and Coral Feek from the Maluka Farm draft. The Inglis Dash is open to all Inglis Sale graduates from the Classic, Premier and Vobis Gold sales and promises to be an exciting race early in the new year.
