Magnum Befitting of the First

Sunday, 24 November 2019 00:38

A great deal has happened in the career of Per Incanto since his first ever Premier yearling stepped in the Karaka sale ring in 2014.

Although he’s in the twilight of a distinguished racing career, that yearling, subsequently named Magnum, showed with a typically gritty win the open 1600m at Pukekohe Park on Saturday many of the attributes which have taken Per Incanto into the top echelon of NZ sires.

A stakes winner of nearly $500k, much of Magnum’s continued zest for racing must also lie with his trainer Lauren Brennan and her team who have done a remarkable job with the seven-year-old since his repatriation from Singapore a little over two-years ago.

Magnum, who was purchased from Karaka for $100k by Michael Freedman and Michael Wallace Bloodstock, is owned by Jason Fleming, Justin Knight David Wallace, Lauren Brennan and Sam Williams.
