Magnus X Della Leonessa

Magnus X Della Leonessa

1 year old Chestnut Colt

Sire: Magnus Dam: Della Leonessa


Check out the video footage of the Magnus x Della Leonessa colt parading at the recent Melbourne Premier yearling sale:

“…Lot 337 is a Super Vobis & Vobis Sires eligible Magnus colt. A big, powerful colt. A big shoulder, good hindquarter with a big bold head. We love him. He is a good boned horse from a good stud and we have had a lot of luck with Magnus progeny including Prince of Brooklyn, Volcanic Ash, Duke of Brunswick and Princess Of Queens. These are all multiple metropolitan winners by Magnus who is a very good stallion. I think this colt is very well bought as it was a bit of a buyers’ market at the Premier sale. We really like him, he will probably make a 2yo and will certainly have a 2yo preparation put in front of him and see how he copes. Regardless he is a big, strong, lovely chestnut colt and he is great value....” Mick Price

Magnus is one of Australia’s quality stallions with an impressive progeny record including:

  • Sire of 15 individual stakes winners including Group 1 winners Magnifisio, Great Shot and Malaguerra.
  • Sire of exciting Group 2 winning and Group 1 placed Enbihaar
  • Over $30 million in progeny earnings to date

The dam of this colt is Della Leonessa who was a winner at 1200m and has produced two winners to date at stud including metropolitan winner Sparkling Bella. Della Leoness is closely related to dual Group 1 winner Plastered, Group 2 winner Tip The Pro and Listed winners Miss Condition and Brandy Lane.

The colt was purchased for $60,000 at the recent Melbourne Premier yearling sale and is now at breaking in under the care of Nathan Dunn.

Check out the video footage Nathan has posted of the colt being broken in
