Multiple Group 1 winner and leading sire Manduro has died at the age of 18 after suffered a fatal heart attack at Haras du Logis in Normandy on Saturday
Bought at BBAG for €130,000 by Rüdiger Alles for Baron Georg von Ullmann, Manduro was originally trained by Peter Schiergen to win the Group 3 Preis des Winterfavoriten as a two-year-old.
At three he landed the Group 3 Preis der Deutschen before being switched to the care of Andre Fabre, for whom he landed the Group 2 Prix d’Harcourt as well as being placed in the Prix Ganay, Prix d’Ispahan, Prince of Wales’s Stakes, Prix Jacques le Marois and Prix du Moulin as a four-year-old.
At five he won the Earl of Sefton Stakes, Prix d’Ispahan, Prince of Wales’s Stakes, Prix Jacques le Marois and the Prix Foy.
Purchased by Sheikh Mohammed to stand at stud, Manduro began stallion duties at Darley’s Kildangan Stud in 2007 before transferring to Haras du Logis in 2013.
The sire of 35 stakes winners, his Group 1 scorers are Charity Line, Mandaean, Ribbons, Ultra and Vazirabad.
Darley’s Director of Stallions Sam Bullard said: “Manduro has been a wonderful servant and will be greatly missed by the team. He has been reliable source of winners and stakes performers for breeders.”
