Wild Rain Purchased by Cressfield
Tara Madgwick - Monday, 13 March 2017
Hunter Valley nursery Cressfield have an exciting new addition to their broodmare
band in the shape of brilliant Group II winner Wild Rain.
The winner of eight races and over $840,000 in prizemoney, Wild Rain was
purchased by Cressfield in a deal brokered by Astute Bloodstock.
"Wild Rain is a daughter of Manhattan Rain (sire of leading Golden Slipper
contender She Will Reign) from the family of the champion Northerly, the winner
of nine Group I races," said Louis Le Metayer of Astute Bloodstock.
"She is a stunning athlete, with tremendous speed and being free of Danehill
blood she will be easy to mate with most of Australia's leading stallions.
"We identified Wild Rain as a superior racehorse early in her career and we are
thrilled to be able to purchase a mare of such quality. Wild Rain has departed
for her new home and we wish Cressfield the very best of luck with her."
