Magali Farms Renews & Adds New Stallions to TrueNicks

Magali Farms in California will have four stallions enrolled in TrueNicks for the 2010 breeding season. Free TrueNicks reports have been available on Decarchy (TrueNicks,SRO) and Decarchy (TrueNicks,SRO) since last fall and Magali will sponsor two additional stallions, Atticus (TrueNicks,SRO) and Ten Most Wanted (TrueNicks,SRO).

Multiple graded winner Decarchy is one of the more promising young stallions in the Golden State. He was California’s leading second crop sire in 2008 and has a sire’s pedigree if there ever was one. His dam is none other than Toussaud, dam of (among others) Empire Maker and Chester House.

Grade I winner Good Journey is another with impeccable credentials. By Nureyev out of Champion Chimes of Freedom, Good Journey’s female line is full of champions from around the world. Fitting, in that Good Journey has already had success as a sire on the international stage, siring a group I winner from his first Australian crop. His first North American foals are yearlings of 2009.

Atticus is one of the rare animals that was equally adept on dirt and turf. He followed up his world record-setting performance in the 1997 Arcadia H. on the Santa Anita grass with a 3-length score in the Oaklawn H. (gr. I) on dirt. He’s sired some good ones on both surfaces too; Florida Derby (gr. I) High Fly, graded stakes-winning turf sprinter Atticus Kristy, etc.

It’s rare that California breeders can breed to a Travers (gr.I) winner in their own backyard, but that’s the case with Ten Most Wanted. The grandson of Deputy Minister also took the Illinois Derby (gr. II) and Super Derby (gr. II) in addition to placing in the Belmont S. (gr. I) during his exceptional sophomore campaign.

I was overjoyed when we got Ten Most Wanted here in California. I think that the farms in our state need to step up and start purchasing more topnotch stakeswinners to stand here. We have a pretty good group but it wouldn't hurt to improve on what we already have.
