Course Record for Noble Manor in Singapore

Pencarrow Stud-bred Noble Manor ran an equal course record time on the polytrack at Kranji on Friday night to win his S$125,000 1000m event in 0:59.00 and provided a boost to the pedigree of his half-brother by Redoute’s Choice to be offered at Karaka 2010.

Scorching down the outside of the field, the son of Stravinsky and Jetball mare Sarwatch reeled in a gallant Why Be to win by one-and-a-half lengths.

Now the winner of seven, four-year-old Noble Manor is aimed at the Group 3 Three Rings Trophy (1400m) on 29 January.
Purchased by prominent New Zealand buyer, David Ellis, at the 2007 Premier Sale for $380,000, Noble Manor’s New Zealand performances included running an unlucky fourth in the inaugural Karaka Million in January 2008 before heading to the stable of leading Singapore trainer, Laurie Laxon.
His Redoute’s Choice half-brother will be offered at the 2010 Karaka Premier Sale at Lot 146 while his half-sister, Pertinacious (Montjeu), has her first foal, a bay colt by Keeper, set to go under the hammer at Lot 93.

Herself a winner of the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Series, Sarwatch foaled a filly by O’Reilly this Spring and with the success of Noble Manor in mind, has re-visited Stravinsky this season.
