Manhattan Rain Adds South Africa Gr2

Monday, 9th January 2017

At Kenilworth in South Africa, Arrowfield Stud's beautifully bred Gr1-winning stallion Manhattan Rain (Encosta de Lago- Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 4YO Australian-bred entire Whisky Baron (Manhattan Rain-Tazkara, by Sinndar) scored by 2 lengths for trainer Brett Crawford in the R400,000 Gr2 Peninsula Handicap (1800m) for 3YO+, over 5YO entire Milton (Lateral-Missing No More, by Unaccounted For) & fellow 4YO entire It's My Turn (Dynasty-Jallad's Queen, by Jallad). A $50,000 purchase at the 2104 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud, Whisky Baron improved his record to 5 wins and 6 placings from 12 starts for over R500,000 in earnings. By Manhattan Rain, an Encosta de Lago half-brother to multiple champion Australian sire and Arrowfield barn-mate Redoute's Choice, Whisky Baron is out of the unraced French mare Tazkara (Sinndar) making him a half-brother to the 5-time winning former Paul Messara-trained galloper Rowie.
