The Richard Laming-trained 5YO boasts an interesting pedigree, being by Manhattan Rain (Encosta De Lago) out of a mare by his half-brother Redoute’s Choice (Danehill).

Bred and offered by Newhaven Park Stud, Jamaican Rain (Manhattan Rain x Heriz by Redoute’s Choice) was a $90,000 purchase at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale by Homann Bloodstock.


Newhaven park retained a share in the mare and she has now won six of her 11 starts for prize money of $238,325.

With Manhattan Rain and Redoute’s Choice being half-brothers Jamaican Rain boasts a double cross of their famous dam Shantha’s Choice (Canny Lad).

Jamaican Rain Horseform is one of two winners from two foals to race from the unraced Heriz while her second dam Bosphorus Treasure (Prospect Bay) was also unraced but is a half-sister to G3 winner Magic Mirror (Nureyev) and Listed winners Sun Worship (Nonoalco) and Treasure Trove (Try My Best).

Heriz has an unraced 3YO filly, a 2YO filly and a yearling colt all by Zabeel’s son Reset (Zabeel).

Richard Laming purchased the Reset yearling this year for $100,000.

Jamaican Rain is the 13th individual stakes winner by G1 winner Manhattan Rain that include G1 Golden Slipper Stakes winner She Will Reign and South African G1 winner Whisky Baron.

R9 SUNSHINE COAST 30 June 2018
Oaks Htls/Res. Glasshouse Hcp , 1400m
Race Synopsis: Victorian raider and favourite Jamaican Rain bounded clear inside the 200m for the easiest of wins, her third on the trot, sixth in total and maiden stakes win from just 11 starts. She challenged for the early lead but had to settle for the trail, a half length back and one out. Holding her position around the bend and into the straight jockey Tegan Harrison had not moved and they ranged alongside the leader then took command at the 250m where Harrison gave her a shake and she bounded away, clearing out by four lengths for an impressive win. Privlaka had four behind him at the 600m and was widest into the last corner, balanced then kept up a solid run, nailing down second just short of the line. River Racer was a handy third turning in and took over second at the 100m then was passed late for third. From well back, Denmagic lunged into fourth late and wide.
