MAGNUM FORTY FOURMagnum Psyche × WH Nashahna
1998 Bay Arabian Stallion
Deceased January 2013
Early in the new millennium, the long-standing friendship with Gene Reichardt proved advantageous yet again with the introduction of the young stallion MAGNUM FORTY FOUR. Already an established National Reserve Champion in both the US & Canada as an Amateur to Handle Stallion, MAGNUM FORTY FOUR represented the opportunity to reincorporate the blood of PADRON & BEY SHAH, as well as strengthen the Polish foundation within the Mulawa herd. Furthermore, MAGNUM FORTY FOUR possessed a generous dose of Spanish blood through the enormously successful sire MAGNUM PSYCHE – blood that had already consistently proven its worth in the Mulawa program through the significant contributions of FAME MAKER R and TS AL MALIK. MAGNUM FORTY FOUR initially came to Australia on a two year lease; however his success and contribution to program ensured his purchase by Mulawa and an enduring home in Australia.
As expected, MAGNUM FORTY FOUR, shown to East Coast & National Stud Show Champion in his new home, has proven himself to be an exceptionally prepotent sire. With startling consistency, the FORTY FOUR get are incredibly well balanced and harmoniously proportioned, with elegant forehands, depth and capacity of body and strength and substance through the hip. As is often the case with MAGNUM PSYCHE descendants, the type on many of FORTY FOUR get is nothing shy of extreme – short, broad faces with deep jowls, small muzzles, ideally designed and placed ears, with an exotic dish and gorgeously dark, large and luminous eyes. Overall, the get of FORTY FOUR possess an abundance of refinement and elegance and consistently exceed the overall excellence of their sire.
Year after year, the FORTY FOUR get continue to excel in the show ring at the highest level in both halter and performance. Two of his very best daughters can claim undefeatd show seasons: MUSTANG'S MAGNUM - Yearling Filly Champion at the National Stud Show, East Coast Championships & Australian Championships; and "Australia's Sweetheart" PARADA – Australian, East Coast, National Stud Show& Queenlsand Gala Event Champion as a three-year-old. Several of the FORTY FOUR sons have dominated the junior classes for colts at all the major shows in Australia. Both BECAUSE & ATUNED MI are Australian Champion Yearling Colts, ANASTAZI MI is a National Stud Show Champion Two & Three Year Old Colt, ALLEGIANCE MI is a National Stud Show Yearling Colt Champion and ASTOR is an East Coast Champion Yearling Colt. BECAUSE was also awarded the prestigious East Coast Championhip title as a Senior Stallion.
These consistent achievements of the FORTY FOUR get have earned Best Sire at the Australian Championships honours for MAGNUM FORTY FOUR on two occasions. He is, to date, the only sire to be so honoured.
The FORTY FOUR daughters are now proving themselves to be superlative broodmares. Several of the best foals of the most recent Mulawa generation have been out of FORTY FOUR daughters, including twice East Coast & Australian Champion KLASSICAL DREAM MI, National Stud Show Champion ASPIRING VALENTINO MI, and East Coast & Australian Reserve Champion and emerging young sire KONFIDENCE MI.
We remain confident that the long-tem contribution of MAGNUM FORTY FOUR to the Mulawa breeding program will be significant for decades to come.
