In a coup for WA breeders, dual G2 and G1 placed colt Mahuta, has been purchased by Lynward Park Stud for stud duties.
He was a Magic Millions sale graduate who went on to win the lucrative Magic Millions 3yo Guineas on the Gold Coast while based in Victoria with Australia’s leading trainer in Darren Weir. His high profile gives him a presence Australia wide.
A hairline pelvic fracture in the Feehan Stakes meant Mahuta’s career was cut short to only 16 runs. In that short time he showed his class and cast iron grit by winning six races in succession, including two Group 2 victories against very talented opposition.
Among the G1 horses he defeated are: Holler (twice), Takedown (twice), Tivaci, Dal Cielo, Single Gaze, Set Square, Awesome Rock, Palentino, Tarzino, Sofia Rosa, Prince of Penzance, He’s Our Rokkii, Marky Mark & Perfect Reflection.
Mahuta’s pedigree needs no introduction! By Golden Slipper winner and Champion sire Flying Spur. From Vahine, a Zabeel 3/4 sister to G1 winner Isolda, he descends from a talented family littered with black type performers.
His class and courage on the racetrack marry up nicely with his instantly recognisable pedigree making his stock inevitably sought after across Australia.
We are delighted with our new acquisition and the opportunities he provides for both ourselves and our clients going forwards. He ticks the boxes being a fast, colonial bred stallion with an imposing physique. Expressions of interest are welcomed and bookings are now being taken.
