Baby Angel is also a half-sister to multiple stakes placed filly Lucky Angel. Baby Angel has been a wonder producer having already foaled four winners ranging in distances from 1000m to 1900m.

“I’m absolutely wrapped to have secured this outstanding Manhattan Rain colt, he’s is just a lovely well balanced athletic colt that comes from a strong well preformed tough racing family. The colt has all the attributes that I look for when selecting my yearlings, a great loose walker that covers ground with ease, lots of strength and well grown racy type that could quite easily be a lovely late 2yr old and race on and develop into an ideal 3 year old miler. I have a number of Manhattan Rain’s in my stable and have trained them to great success they are tough racehorses that are very durable and effective over any distance. This colt reminded me a lot of Uptown Lad as a yearling, he’s a lovely type that I had to have, I certainly wasn’t leaving that sales without him!

Port Macquarie Sunday

The Kim Waugh team will send two lightly raced gallopers in Could I Be and Newsfan in a bid to break their ducks in consecutive races at Port Macquarie on Sunday.

Could I Be lines up for her second race start in the opening event race 1 John Oxley 3yr old Maiden Showcase Handicap over 1100m. The Dream Ahead filly has continued to please since her first up performance two and a half weeks ago at Wyong with the stable confident of an improved showing with the slight drop back to a country maiden with the experience and fitness levels that come with having the run under her belt. “Could I Be is well, she is a filly that is still learning and will certainly be better for the outing. The filly has drawn nicely and should settle just off the leaders and with luck I will be happy to see the filly hit the line late” added Kim. Andrew Gibbons has secured the ride with the pair jumping from barrier 6.

Newsfan resumed from a spell in race 2 Prime 7 4yr old + Maiden Showcase Handicap over 1100m. The lightly race Zoffany mare has show promise in a short career to date finishing close second at both her two starts last prep and looks to have come back in good style with a solid trial performance in preparation to her first up run. “Newsfan is very well, she is a nice mare that has pleased me since her return to the stable. Her form last prep on the provincial circuit was quite strong and Sunday’s event looks a very suitable race on paper” added Kim. Andrew Gibbons takes the ride aboard Newsfan, with the pair jumping from barrier 11.
