MAHAMEDEIS SCORES AGAIN WITH BRILLIANT WERRIBEE CUP WIN Four-year-old MAGNUS gelding MAHAMEDEIS has buttered up his huge Traralgon Cup win with a tough win in yesterday’s Werribee Cup over the talented Second Bullet.
Yesterday’s cup win took MAHAMEDEIS past the $500,000 mark, now a winner of six races from just 17 starts.
Winning trainer Nick Ryan seemed very buoyant & pleased about his MAGNUS marvel post Cup win.
“He really is starting to show his true talent this horse.” Ryan said.
“There’s a great bunch of owners in the horse & a few in Sydney who couldn’t make it here today, so we might look at Sydney after he has a little break.”
Winning hoop Luke Currie gave a glowing report post Cup.
“It was pretty painless really.” Currie said.
“He just jumped & traveled really well throughout.”
“He has improved a lot this horse, the deeper he has gone into his prep, the better he has been."
"He looks a really nice horse going forward, and there certainly looks a really good race in him.”
MAGNUS has 48 individual winners and close to $2,000,000 in progeny earnings for the 2018/19 season.

FIORENTE STRIKES AGAIN PIEMONTE has become the 12th individual winner for leading second crop sire FIORENTE after recording an outstanding win over 1400m at Sandown on Wednesday.
The Robbie Griffiths trained three-year-old gelding ran second on debut over 1200m at Mornington on November 19 and he has followed up with an excellent on pace victory at start number two, with Jamie Mott in the saddle for the one-length win.
With a host of first crop winners, including Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase winner and Group 1 $2 million Victoria Derby runner-up, STARS OF CARRUM, FIORENTE’s popularity surged to unprecedented levels in the spring and the decision was made close his book for the 2018 season.
“Anybody who says we can’t breed a stayer in Australia is wrong … it is just that we haven’t had the right approach and I believe FIORENTE could be the catalyst for the resurrection of staying horses in this country,” Sun Stud’s Senior Sales & Nominations Manager, Mark Lindsay points out.
Winning both the Melbourne Cup and Australian Cup, FIORENTE was regarded the ‘fast stayer’ as he also won a Group Two at weight for age over 1600m and was Group One placed in the 1400m All Aged Stakes.
FIORENTE is also the only son at stud in Australia of the phenomenal MONSUN who has 79% winners to runners, 22 Group One winners and 1 in 7 foals which are stakes winners!
PIEMONTE is the second foal out of the Canny Lad mare Ellas, and was bred by Catalina Pastoral. ... See MoreSee Less
