Mr Manhattan Out To Make It Rain In Summer Sprint (Saturday)

Mr Manhattan will benefit from a home track advantage when he lines up in the $100,000 Summer Sprint (1000m) at Warwick Farm this Saturday.

The Joe Pride-trained gelding has won two of his three starts there and the one time he wasn’t victorious was when he ran 2nd by a nose to Nancy who went on to enjoy Group 3 success.

“He has had two good wins over 1000m at Warwick Farm, has drawn a suitable barrier (6) and will be very competitive on Saturday,” Pride said.

The punters agree, with Mr Manhattan installed as $3.60 favourite on TAB fixed odds.

Topweight Oxford Poet, Aspiring and Plateau Gold will be the likely leaders in the feature.

“There’s a lot of speed in the race so we’ll be hoping they overdo it up the front which will put Mr Manhattan in a good stalking position,” Pride said. “He’ll settle off the pace and be there at the business end of the race.”

Mr Manhattan, by Manhattan Rain from Fashion Police, has an impressive record of six wins and three places from twelve starts.

While Pride acknowledges the 8th place in his most recent run in the Listed Starlight Stakes was disappointing, he isn’t too worried.

“He was against a strong field, got a long way out of his ground and only got going late,” he said.

Mr Manhattan had a good trial on 19 December where he was able to make ground in the final 100m.

Jockey Tim Clark, who was aboard for the trial and his most recent win at Canterbury, will again pilot the horse in the Summer Sprint.

“There’s been a five week gap since his last race and the trial has kept him ticking over,” Pride said.

Looking beyond the weekend Pride is keen to keep Mr Manhattan going through to the Sydney Autumn Carnival and find an appropriate stakes race for him.

“He is only lightly raced and his best is still ahead of him.”
