For the second time in as many days, Magna Graduate got a maiden winner, the seventh from his first crop. Wild Finish earned a hard-fought neck victory at Aqueduct on Nov. 17 in the debut for the 2-year-old son of the Darby Dan freshman sire.

Wild Finish battled most of the six furlongs with Shot Rock, only to be confronted in deep stretch by Alcolite after putting his earlier foe away. The dark bay New York bred proved resilient, however, and held on to get the distance in 1:12.86.

Magna Graduate's stud fee for 2013 was recently announced at $5,000 LFS&N. The eight-time stakes winner earned $2,582,216 in a stellar career that saw him place in 11 additional black-type races.
