South African Winner For Manhattan Rain
Whisky Baron, a 4YO son of Arrowfield Stud's beautifully bred young stallion Manhattan Rain, posted his second win in nine starts when scoring a comfortable 1.25 length win over 1600m at Kenilworth in South Africa overnight. Trained by Brett Crawford, Whisky Baron was a $50,000 purchase at the 2104 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud. By Manhattan Rain, an Encosta de Lago half-brother to multiple champion Australian sire and Arrowfield barn-mate Redoute's Choice, Whisky Baron is out of the unraced French mare Tazkara (Sinndar) making him a half-brother to the 5-time winning former Paul Messara-trained galloper Rowie.
