Talented Youngster Back In Work
Meanwhile, talented 2YO Manolo Blahniq (Jimmy Choux-Floramour) returned to the stable of trainer Craig Thornton on Monday, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Gr3 Eclipse Stakes winner was given a break after finishing unplaced as favourite in the Listed Karaka Million behind Xiong Feng on 24 January. "He had six weeks out and that was always the plan," Thornton said. "He's done very well and he's in really good shape." Manolo Blahniq's immediate future has yet to be decided, but at some stage he is expected to join the Mornington stable of Tony Noonan who purchased the Jimmy Choux colt at Karaka last year for $115,000.
