Manor House, Colt From First Crop By Upstart, Runs Away From Laurel Park Foes In Debut

Manor House draws off to win his career debut by 12 1/4 lengths under Victor Carrasco

Newtown Anner Stud Farm’s Manor House, a juvenile colt from the first crop by multiple graded-stakes winning millionaire Upstart, was never threatened romping by 12 ¼ lengths in his career debut Saturday at Laurel Park in Laurel, Md.

Ridden by Victor Carrasco for trainer Michael Stidham, Manor House ($10.80) ran one mile in 1:38.31 over a fast main track in the maiden special weight for 2-year-olds. Dream Big Dreams, the 6-5 favorite also making his first start for meet-leading trainer Brittany Russell, edged Rippolino by a neck for a distant second.

Manor House, out of the Dixie Union mare Cascina, outran 25-1 longshot Camp Pendleton for the lead and went the opening quarter-mile in 24.10 and a half in 47.50, when Camp Pendleton moved within a half-length of the front-runner. Manor House got his cue on the turn and opened up with ease on his rivals, galloping to the wire under a hand ride.
