Wonderful Lass X Manhattan Rain
This filly is a daughter of the Stakes winner and 2YO city winner WONDERFUL LASS (Catbird). There is plenty of 2YO speed close up in this pedigree and this filly’s precocity is bolstered by the fact she is by MANHATTAN RAIN (Encosta de Lago), who of course sired last year’s Golden Slipper winner SHE WILL REIGN.
Manhattan Rain has had just 1 runner to-date out of a Catbird (Danehill) mare and that is the two-time winner New York Philly. There have just been 11 runners to-date by sons of Encosta de Lago out of Catbird mares but these include the winners Mr Copperfield (Man of Illusion) and New York Philly (Manhattan Rain), as well as this season’s juvenile Stakes-placed filly Thunder Bay (Niagara).
Manhattan Rain has had 6 runners, who, like this filly, are from mares with Snippets as their dam sire, and 4 of these are winners and include the Hong Kong winner Bear Pop.
