World Champion racehorse who won all five of his starts from a mile to a mile-and-a-half in 2007. He’s passing on his progressive brilliance: he’s the sire of an unbeaten G1-winning two-year-old in his first crop, two top-class G1-winning fillies in his second.

Man’s best moments

His early crops also include the G2 Dante winner and G1-placed Bonfire; G2 Prix Dollar winner Fractional; French G2 performer Trois Lunes, winner of the G3 Prix Vanteaux; Fielden Stakes winner True Story; Italian Stakes-winning colt Drive To Hell; Global Bang, second in the G2 German 2,000 Guineas; Buckwheat, who broke his maiden in a Listed; and 27 Stakes horses so far.

Man in the ring

He stamps his stock with his athletic build and fluent movement and the market continues to show its approval. His fifth-crop yearlings have made €88,000 while a rare southern hemisphere yearling  topped the opening session at Magic Millions selling for the Australian equivalent of €370,000

 

Enduring appeal

The best-ever son of the never-more influential Monsun, Manduro has been extremely popular for his fifth and sixth crops: his foal crop and in-foal mares include 94 (78 per cent) out of Group and Stakes horses, or dams, daughters or siblings of Group and Stakes horses.
