The Lady Trainer soaks up Manhattan Rain

Manhattan Rain’s trainer Gai Waterhouse will have plenty of opportunities to assess his worth as a sire, because four of his first-crop yearlings will join her stable from last week’s Magic Millions Sale.

Leading syndicator Star Thoroughbreds, whose horses are all Waterhouse-trained, purchased fillies from Lustre Lady ($115,000) and Bondi Blonde ($95,000), and the Sea Eye Pea colt for $110,000.

The stable will also welcome the $140,000 Two Beauties colt, purchased by Mt Hallowell Stud from the Newhaven Park draft.

Ron Gilbert of Highgrove Stud was delighted to sell the highest-priced Manhattan Rain yearling, a $260,000 colt from Valadon, to Hong Kong’s George Moore Bloodstock. Two days later, the colt’s half-sister Global Dream finished fourth in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic (R) LR.

Blue Sky Thoroughbreds & the Arrowfield Training Centre paid $160,000 for Newhaven Park‘s colt from Sweet Ransom, and Mark Kavanagh signed for the top-priced Manhattan Rain filly, from North Flower. A relative of two-time Horse of the year Northerly, she was offered by Arrowfield, which also sold the Manhattan Rain-Passiflora filly for $100,000 to South African buyer Adriaan van Vuuren.
