This Manhattan Rain colt has all trade-marks that he will run as an early 2yo and will be set for Inglis 2 million Millennium 2yo race by the Waterhouse and Bott stables.
He has been really well bought and we are thrilled to be offering him for syndication. This colt is such a lovely type, a very relaxed individual and is easy on the eye.
Strong and powerful, a great mover and is light on his feet.
Adrian Bott’s comments at the Inglis Classic sale, “This colt is a sharp individual, everything you would expect from a Manhattan Rain colt. Very precocious looking, beautifully balanced racy type of a colt.
The Manhattan Rain colt is currently at Evergreen Stud commencing being broken in by Gordan Pratt.
The process of breaking in a horse is to educate them how to wear saddle and gear, be mouthed, be ridden by a jockey and to adapt to the riders instructions. The colt will also go through the barriers so he can familiarise himself with that important aspect of going to the races. This will insure he is ready for the early 2yo races.
He is rated A+ nick rating.
This colt has been scoped, x-rayed and clinically examined.

Trainer: GAI WATERHOUSE & ADRIAN BOTT
Gai’s first runner in a race won. Her first runner in a metropolitan race won. Gai’s first runner in a Group One race won. Her first runner in a jumps race won.
The education Gai received during her 12 year apprentice with T.J. leading up to January 1992. It is little wonder the Lady Trainer was an instant success. From Gai Waterhouse’s her humble beginnings as a solo trainer in January 1992. Gai has achieved as much as humanly possible with racehorses. Many would rest on their laurels after such success, Gai simply wants to win more and more.
Owners can rest assured that the Lady Trainer wants to win races just as much if not more than they do. Confirmation of this dedication to excellence came after just fifteen years of training. She inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame (2007). As we stand, in just over 20 years of training, Gai has amassed over 120 Group One wins. She currently sits third on the all-time list (Group One winners) behind T.J. Smith and Bart Cummings.
Gai Waterhouse greatest achievements by far have been recorded in the best races of the year in both Melbourne and Sydney. She won Sydney’s two best races, the Golden Slipper and Doncaster Handicap six and seven times respectively. Gai is by far the most successful trainer ever in the Sydney Spring. Make hay while the sun shines’ is a phrase one often can hear Gai quoting. This attitude is reflected by Gai’s results in the best races contested during the Sydney Spring Carnival. The Flight Stakes (7 wins), the Epsom Handicap (7 wins) and the Metropolitan Handicap (8 wins) have become races at the mercy of Gai each and every year.
Gai gives each and every horse that comes into her care every possible chance to succeed. Only six horses in the history of Sydney racing have won the two-year-old Triple Crown and Gai has trained two of them (Dance Hero 2004 and Pierro 2012). Gai Waterhouse has won more Group One races for two-year-olds than any other trainer.
