Magna Graduate Sires First Winner

Magna Graduate's daughter Blueeyesintherein wins at Churchill in first start.

Blueeyesintherein, by Magna Graduate , appears to be a chip off the old block. The juvenile filly broke her maiden at first asking at Churchill Downs, the same track where Magna Graduate recorded his biggest win, in the 2005 Clark Handicap (gr. II).

Blueeyesintherein won the 4 ½-furlong race May 31 by 3 3/4 lengths in :51.66 for owners Dorothy Self and Berry King.

Bred in Kentucky by Elisabeth Alexander, Blueeyesintherein is the second winner from two foals of racing age out of the winning Mr. Greeley mare Tartufi.

Magna Graduate (Honor Grades—Peacock Alley, by Fast Play) won six other graded stakes in his career and earned a career total of $2,582,816. He stands for $5,000 at John Phillips’ Darby Dan Farm near Lexington.
