Horses available

SOLD OUT: We’re syndicating Manwhataman; 1,000 euros for 10 percent. Great chance to get your toe in the water in French racing with a proven horse for spring.

Three-year-old colt Manwhataman, who IS a man at the moment but soon to be a gelding. Manwhataman is by Manduro out of a Country Reel mare and is a full brother to Calpyso Song, a three-time winner who is Listed placed.

Man started his career in Poland, where he won three races and was never out of the money, including finishing 4th in the Polish Derby. Normally that form might not stand up in France, but he finished 2nd in his first start here at St. Cloud. He had a bad run for us at Longchamp, after which we found two problems: a lung infection, which we’ve since cleared up, and a small strain at the bottom of his front right suspensory ligament. The latter problem will impose a winter vacation, so we’ll geld him and bring him back into training in mid-February. This is a minor injury, and should pose no problem after the proper break.

Manwhataman gets French owners premiums and has been given a handicap rating of 33.5. That means that after the break, he will start next spring off a rating of 33, which we think is a gift, because we see him as a Quinte horse.

We are selling 10-percent shares in Man for 1,000 euros; eight shares are available. He will be on box rest for the next two months, so the cost will be minimal until he comes back into training in February.

If you’d like to join our syndicate or have further questions, get in touch!
