December 12, 2016Nice Winner and Timely Update
A modest $26,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Newhaven Park draft in 2014, four year-old Manhattan Rain gelding Manhattan Son scored his third win at Hawkesbury on Sunday to provide a timely update for his yearling half-brother headed to the 2017 Inglis Classic.
Prepared by Clarry Conners, Manhattan Son bolted in to win over 1800 metres by nearly three lengths as favourite and has now won his past two starts at Hawkesbury.
He is one of nine winners from good producer Beam, whose Delago Deluxe yearling colt will be offered by Newhaven Park as Lot 349 at Inglis Classic.
Newhaven Park will offer nine yearlings at Inglis Classic, four of them by Delago Deluxe.
