South African Group Two Winner for Manhattan Rain
Tara Madgwick - Sunday, 8 January 2017
Rain not only is the sire of arguably the best two year-old we've seen to date
this season in She Will Reign, but also a new stakes-winner in South Africa
with four year-old gelding Whisky Baron taking out the Group II Glorious Goodwood
Peninsula Handicap at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Trained by Brett Crawford for Messrs C & R Kieswetter, Whisky Baron won the
1800 metre feature by two lengths..
Already Group III placed twice, Whisky Baron has the overall record of five
wins and six placings from 12 runs.
A modest $50,000 Inglis Easter purchase for C Roscoe/ J Ramsden from the
Arrowfield Stud draft, Whisky Baron is the lone Black Type horse among four
winners from Tazkara (Fr), who Studbook report has gone back to France after
producing five foals in Australia.
Whisky Baron is the ninth stakes-winner for Manhattan Rain, who has three
entries for Magic Millions and five for Inglis Classic.
