The Gr.1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes winner Manhattan Rain - an Encosta de Lago half-brother to Redoute's Choice - is doing a terrific job at stud with his 16 stakes winners including the Gr.1 gallopers She Will Reign (Golden Slipper, Moir Stakes) and Whisky Baron (South Africa).

Despite never serving large books, Manhattan Rain has proven to be a reliable source of winners with his progeny earning in excess of $25.9 million in stakes - winning races in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau.

Over 35% of Manhattan Rain's winners are either stakes winners, stakes placed or metropolitan winners - giving you a decent chance of getting a nice horse!

Chances which are enhanced by a good pedigree which this exciting filly certainly has - her dam being a member of the Taufan sire line and that horse hails from the same internationally prolific family as Manhattan Rain... giving her a highly desirable 6 X 6 cross of the influential mare Stolen Hour.

Giving this filly a similar pedigree to the Gr.1 Stradbroke Handicap and Gr.1 George Main Stakes winner Sincero (by Manhattan Rain's close relation Umatilla) and the South African Gr.1 galloper Tytola.

She is the first foal for the lightly raced winner Calais View, daughter of the outstanding galloper Canford Cliffs - a five times Gr.1 winning successful sire of 21 stakes winners inclusive of four Gr.1 winners. And he has made such a great start to his career as a broodmare sire with just a handful of runners so far - the very exciting unbeaten triple stakes winning two-year-old Amelia's Jewel amongst them.

Calais View is one of the seven winners produced by the Listed Northwood Plume Stakes winning Rubiton mare Personal Ensign who did a great job winning three of only eight starts. Two of her runners are stakes winners - the Gr.3 Red Anchor Stakes winner Sartorial Splendor and the Gr.2 Blue Diamond Prelude and Gr.3 Blue Diamond Preview winner Fontiton, in turn dam of the fast and talented three-year-old Generation, winner this season of the Gr.3 Red Anchor Stakes and the Gr.3 Manfred Stakes.

Personal Ensign's dam Blue Gum Girl by the oh so tough Rancho Ruler was a dual city winner and her dam Golden Prayer also had plenty of talent, winning seven races including the Gr.2 Breeders Stakes.

This is a family that has been producing quality performers for generations, its other members including the recent Listed Centaurea Stakes winner Foxy Frida and fellow stakes winners Tequila Time, Inner Warrior, God Of Dragon, Beauty Forever, Alderson and Kentucky Sunset.

A proven stallion, an in-form family, a lovely pedigree - this is a filly who ticks all the boxes!

The share price includes Inglis bonus series nomination, Vobis Gold nomination and insurance for 12 months.
