The highlight of the month was when our classy six-year-old Bay mare Jamaican Rain by Manhattan Rain out of Heriz, chalked up more black type for connections when landing the GROUP 3 Mannerism over 1400m under Damien Oliver to secure win seven at only 13 starts, earning prize money exceeding $338,000 this time picking up just over $96,000 when leading passing 400m to boot clear by three quarters of a length at odds of 6 to 1 to beat Naantali from Tellyplay at 58kg earning four wins from her last five starts.

Trainer Richard Laming’s decision to stay at home has been vindicated with Jamaican Rain led throughout to win at Caulfield.

Jamaican Rain has shown a liking for soft ground and that was in the back of Laming’s mind deciding between Saturday’s Caulfield and Rosehill options.

“I thought about it for three hours before deciding to stay home,” Laming said.

Laming said Jamaican Rain had trialled well leading into Saturday’s race and he’d left tactics to Oliver.

“He got away with some nice sections and kicked at the top of the straight,” Laming said.

“It was no surprise but it’s always good to get the job done on raceday.”

Included in those wins was the Listed Glasshouse in Qld under Tegan Harrison by 3.75 lengths back to the locals Privlaka & River Racer to claim a further advancement of prize money of some $108k, for the highly talented Mare.

Shoot For Coomah was also a winner most recently under Brian Higgins over the 1100m dash for maiden runners to remove the tag at favorite odds at start number 4, proving that the stable is off to a great start for the month of March.

Until next month.
