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, an Oaks and G1 Premio Lydia Tesio winner in his second and three impressive Stakes winners in his third.

Man’s best moments

His first two crops also include the G2 Dante winner and G1-placed Bonfire; G3 Prix Quincey winner Fractional; French G2 performer Trois Lunes, winner of the G3 Prix Vanteaux; Italian Stakes-winning colt Drive To Hell; Global Bang, the runner-up in the G2 German 2,000 Guineas; Buckwheat, who broke his maiden for Andre Fabre in a Listed; and 22 Group or Stakes horses so far, among them the progressive four-time winner Ribbons.

Man in the ring

He stamps his stock with his athletic build and fluent movement and the market continues to show its approval. His fourth-crop yearlings have made €70,000 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 of 122 includes 114 out of Stakes horses/producers or their daughters or siblings, while 88% of his mares in his first season in France are Stakes horses or their dams, daughters or siblings.
