2015 South Australian Derby Plans for Manapine

The South Australian Derby 2015 in Adelaide this coming May could turn out to be the long term goal for the promising Nigel Blackiston-trained gelding Manapine who won at Ballarat on Thursday.

The Manhattan Rain three-year-old broke his maiden status at career start number two with an excellent three and a quarter length victory over the Russell Cameron-trained The Thug ($26) and race favourite Quarry Rock ($2.50) in the $17,5000 Evergreen Turf Maiden Plate (1400m).

Dwayne Dunn was aboard for the ride with Manapine displaying a scintillating late burst when powering down the centre of the track in his barnstorming win to impress his hoop.

“Coming off the back of them with a nice tow in three-wide, he really hit the line solid,” Dunn, who won the race before aboard the Team Hawkes-trained Karigara, said post-win.

That followed on from his second on debut over 1426m at Sale in August last year and has the Flemington-based Blackiston confident of a good autumn to come from the young gun.

“He’s a very nice horse,” Blackiston told Racing Victoria.

“He ran a nice race first-up, we gave him time out and he’s come back bigger and stronger.”

A $200,000 buy at the 2013 William Inglis and Son Australian Easter Yearling Sale, the Arrowfield Stud-owned Manapine looks to be living up to his expensive purchase price from two years ago.

According to Blackiston, the blueblood could shape up to be a nice type for the $500,000 Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m) at Morphettville on May 9 during the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival.

“I think he could possibly measure up to the South Australian Derby, if not something a bit better,” he said.

Connections also made an early entry for him in the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 7 as well as nominating him for the $2 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) at Randwick a month later during Sydney’s The Championships.

Futures Australian Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have Manapine listed as a $101 roughie shot while in the Australian Derby betting markets he is half that price paying $51 for the mile and a half classic.
