Mahuta (AUS)

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Flying Spur ex Vahine (NZ), by Zabeel

2024 service fee private

Bay Horse (2012) 16.0hh

Mahuta is the horse we all dream of.  He was a tough as teak racehorse who kept progressing with every run and now, as a stallion, he is the epitome of colonial speed with the type and pedigree to match.

Mahuta was a brilliant performer for Darren Weir, Victoria’s leading trainer, winning six races in succession between October 8, 2015, and February 13, last year.  Check out his 6 wins on the video link above.

He retires with $1,752,960 in stake earnings and having beaten 14 individual Group 1 winners.

Mahuta’s winning sequence started with a six-length romp in a 1450m Kyneton maiden. He was then moved straight into Listed company and won the 1400m Gothic Stakes at Caulfield from the Group 1 winner Holler.

It was onwards and upwards into Group 3 company with Mahuta winning the 1600m Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day. The Group 1 winner He’s Our Rokkii was third.

Mahuta’s progress continued unabated when he raced wide on the pace to take the 1600m Group 2 Sandown Guineas from Group 1 winner Dal Cielo in a class record 1.35.98 and earn the title ‘The Winning Machine’ from legendary race caller Greg Miles.

On to Queensland and Mahuta confirmed his reputation as one of Australia’s most promising sprinters by winning the Magic Millions Guineas in a slick 1.21.57 from Group 1 winner Single Gaze. Back to Melbourne, he took the 1400m Group 2 Autumn Stakes at Caulfield.

Mahuta later finished third to five time Group 1 winner Black Heart Bart and Rising Romance in the Group 1 1400m Memsie Stakes at Caulfield.

Mahuta stands an imposing 16hh.  He is a strong, well built colt with obvious influences from both his sire Flying Spur and his damsire, Zabeel.

Mahuta has the pedigree to pass on his racetrack brilliance.

Flying Spur won winner the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes, Australian Guineas and All-Aged Stakes. Flying Spur has topped the Australian Sires Premiership and has sired 1,020 individual winners and 99 Stakes winners that include successful sires Casino Prince (who in the current season has again sired more than 100 individual winners) and Magnus.

Mahuta’s dam, Vahine, is by the incredible Zabeel, the sire of 1,105 winners and 163 Stakes winners and the broodmare sire of 1,764 winners and 174 Stakes winners. Vahine is a 3/4 sister to Isolda, winner of the Group 1 AJC Champagne Stakes, second in the Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes, QTC Sires Produce Stakes and Castlemaine Stakes and third in the Group 1 AJC Australian Oaks.
