Noble Manor Too Classy in Singapore

The Pencarrow-bred three-year-old Noble Manor proved too classy in the Kranji Stakes C over 1200 metres on Saturday to record his third win in Singapore.

Jumping from barrier four in the hands of Saimee Jumait, he settled near the rear of the field before being angled through a gap on entering the straight. From there he went to work to put one and a half lengths between himself and second placegetter Breadwinner at the line.

Trained by Laurie Laxon for Peter and Philip Vela, Mark Wyborn and Trevor Farmer, the son of Stravinsky and Sarwatch is to be aimed at the Singapore Three Year Old Challenge Series, commencing on 6 June with the first race run over 1200 metres.

During her racing career Sarwatch, by Jetball, won the Group 2 ARC Royal Stakes, the Group 3 Hawkes Bay Gold Trail Stakes and the Listed ARC Soliloquy Stakes to be crowned the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year.

She is a daughter of the Stud’s outstanding four-time Group 1 winning mare Riverina Charm (Sir Tristram) and this year foaled colt by Redoute’s Choice before being served by Waikato Stud’s Champion Sire O’Reilly.
