Monday, 27th July 2015

At Morphettville in South Australia, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Manhattan Rain (Encosta de Lago- Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success when 3YO chestnut filly Wild Rain (Manhattan Rain-North Flower, by Rory's Jester) scored by 0.3-length for trainer Mark Kavanagh in the $100,000 Listed Lightning Stakes (1050m) for 2YOs, over 3YO gelding Cashed (Krupt-Li'l Cashy, by Keltrice) & fellow 3YO filly Trupt (Krupt-Tiona, by Blevic). This was the first stakes victory for Wild Rain who took her record to 5 wins and 2 placings (including the Gr3 MRC Sir John Monash Stakes) from 12 starts for $227,750 earnings. Wild Rain was a $150,000 purchase by her trainer Mark Kavanagh at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale form the draft of Arrowfield Stud.
