VIA MANZONI TAKES THIRD IN VANTEAUX
The Haras de Saint Pair’s three year old Monsun filly Via Manzoni finished third in the 1850 metre Group 3 Prix de Vanteaux at Longchamp on May 3. The Andre Fabre trained filly made most of the running and was only passed in the final 100 metres to be beaten 1/2 length and a length by Olorda and Vedouma.
Via Manzoni now has two wins and two places from 5 career starts for earnings of 76.000 euros. She is the third black type produce of her dam Via Milano and is a half sister to the Group 3 winner Via Medici. Via Milano was a Group winner at two herself. Via Milano’s Shamrdal two-year-old colt was sold to John Ferguson at the October 1 sale in 2014, she has a yearling filly by Raven’s Pass, a colt foal by Mastercraftsman and has been covered by Le Havre.
Via Manzoni is likely to continue her career in Group races at distance between 1600 and 2000 metres. By May 3 Haras de Saint Pair bred had won seven races and taken 16 places in France, from only ten different runners.
