Global Hunter New at Magali Farms

Grade I winner Global Hunter is new for 2011 at Magali Farms in Santa Ynez, California. The stallion joins the Magali Farms roster on TrueNicks, where breeders have access to unlimited complimentary nicking reports.

Global Hunter (ARG) (TrueNicks) was already a multiple graded stakes winner in his native Argentina when he arrived in the U.S. to compete on the California circuit. He proved to be grade I caliber on turf as well as the main track, winning the Eddie Read (gr. I) and American Handicap (gr. II) on turf, and placing third to Zensational in the Bing Crosby (gr. I) on synthetic. In all, Global Hunter won or placed in five graded events from six to 11 furlongs—three on turf, one on dirt, and one on synthetic.

While Global Hunter's pedigree may be unfamiliar to American breeders, he hails from one of the strongest families in the stud book. His dam is blue hen mare Griffe de Paris (by Telescopico, from the Round Table sire line). Griffe de Paris is the dam of five grade/group stakes winners, including three gr. I. Herself a group I winner, she is also the second dam of Argentine champion older mare Ollagua and Brazilian Oaks (gr. I) winner Una Beleza.

Global Hunter is by Jade Hunter, winner of the Donn and Gulfstream Park Handicaps (both gr. I) and sire of 47 stakes winners for over $33 million in progeny earnings. His best performers are Allen Paulson-bred multiple grade I winners Diazo, Yagli, and 2002 Horse of the Year Azeri.

Global Hunter will stand for a $2,500 fee in 2011.

Magali Farms has added three more stallions to their TrueNicks roster in Olmodavor, Roi Charmant, and Mr. Broad Blade.

Olmodavor (TrueNicks,SRO) will stand at Magali Farms beginning in 2011. The son of A.P. Indy was a grade III winner and placed in the Hollywood Gold Cup (gr. I). His dam is grade I winner Corrazona (by El Gran Senor), a half sister to Wood Memorial (gr. I) winner Thirty Six Red. At stud, Olmodavor has sired 61 winners and four stakes winners for more than $2.4 million in progeny earnings. His 2011 fee is $5,000.

Roi Charmant (TrueNicks) is a grade II-placed son of Evansville Slew and earner of over $300,000. He placed in the San Miguel (gr. II) as a three-year-old and in the Potrero Grande Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. III) at age four. Roi Charmant won on dirt, turf, and synthetic, and posted triple-digit Beyers on four occasions. His dam is the winning Seattle Dancer mare Cantina, who has produced seven winners from as many foals. Roi Charmant will stand for a $1,500 fee.

Ascot Handicap winner and grade II-placed Mr. Broad Blade (TrueNicks) is by Broad Brush out of the grade III-winning Highland Blade mare Miss High Blade. At stud, Mr. Broad Blade has sired 14 winners, including stakes winner Bellsblade, stakes-placed Dirty Dish Mitch, and Tampa Bay Derby (gr. III) third Justdontcallmejeri. Mr. Broad Blade stands for $1,500.
