Manawanui Wins Mitchelton Wines Vase

Monday, 24th October 2011

Triple European Gr1-winning shuttler Oratorio (Danehill-Mahrah, by Vaguely Noble) added a group success when gelded son Manawanui (Oratorio-Lady Remlap, by Filante) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in the $200,000 Gr2 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m) for 3YOs at Moonee Valley. Hot favourite Manawanui (ridden by Glyn Schofield for trainer Ron Leemon) defeated fellow gelding Collar (O'Reilly-Laebeel, by Zabeel) & the colt Scelto (Pentire-Our Discretion, by Twig Moss). Manawanui (a $45,000 yearling consigned by Goodwood Farm at the 2010 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins (also including both September’s Gr2 Stan Fox Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill & Gr1 Golden Rose over 1400m at Rosehill, plus August's Gr3 Up And Coming Stakes over 1300m at Warwick Farm) & 2 placings (including last start’s Gr1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield on October 8) from 8 starts for $1,242,580 earnings.
