Manhattan Rain’s first Singapore winner


Manhattan Rain’s first Singapore winner

After three placings in his first four starts, Manhattan Rain’s 3YO son Marine Treasure broke through in determined style for his maiden win in Singapore on Friday evening.

Trainer Steven Burridge elected to bring the gelding back to 1200 metres after two thirds at 1400 metres and Marine Treasure responded with a steely performance to score by 1.5 lengths from What Iff and D’Buffalo Man in 1:10.32.

Watch Marine Treasure’s win at Kranji.

Marine Treasure was bred by Melbourne Polytechnic’s Northern Lodge Stud and sold initially as a yearling, then re-sold for $50,000 at the 2014 Magic Millions Horses in Training Sale to Singapore syndicator Premier Racing.

Like Manhattan Rain’s Group 2-winning son Moonovermanhattan (who was a good third over 1400 metres at Caulfield on Saturday), Marine Treasure is out of a Flying Spur mare, the Group-placed city winner Okaylah. This is the family of Melbourne stakeswinner The Big Chill, also placed in Group 1 company.

Marine Treasure is the first Singapore winner for Manhattan Rain, the sire of 10 stakes performers from his first two crops and fourth on last season’s Australian Second Season Sires’ list.
