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!
