Manduro’s three-year-old son Pharrell, who is entered in the G1 Prix du Jockey Club, made a winning seasonal debut on Sunday, 15 April when gamely landing the G3 Prix Noailles. The winner of three races as a juvenile, the Jean-Claude Rouget trained colt had to fight hard in the straight to defeat Flag Of Honour and Alhabab, the trio clear in a field containing many promising performers.
Bred by Suc. P Camus-Denais & B Camus-Denais, he one of two winners bred out of the Kendor mare Censure, a half-sister to Stakes-performer Mogadishio.
Manduro, who is covering this season at a fee of €7,000, is the sire of six G1 winners including star stayer Vazirabad, the record-breaking victor of his third G2 Dubai Gold Cup at Meydan and French juvenile winners Ultra and Mandaean.
