2010 Manhattan (G1) – Winchester

August 1st, 2012

Trainer Christophe Clement won the 109th running of the Grade 1, 0000 Woodford Reserve Manhattan, just not with the horse everyone expected. As favored Gio Ponti, the defending champion, steadied sharply in traffic on the far turn, long shot Winchester swung six wide with a quarter-mile to run for jockey Cornelio Velasquez and blew past a wall of four horses in deep stretch to win by a half-length. Once Gio Ponti's rider, Ramon Dominguez, found room, the dual Eclipse Award-winning turf champion surged into contention with a furlong to go, briefly gaining the lead before his stablemate went by. The winner, a 5-year-old son of Theatrical bred and owned by Mr. and Mrs. Bertram Firestone, picked up the second Grade 1 victory of his career, completing the 1┬╝-mile fixture in 1:59.46 on an inner turf course labeled firm. At odds of 21.40-to-1, Winchester paid .80 for a win ticket and keyed an all-Clement exacta that paid 7.

    Clement needs to either point Gio Ponti toward the Classic over 1-1/4, and take his chances that he'll handle the conventional dirt at Churchill Downs? Or he needs to point him toward the B.C. Turf over 1-1/2. Gio Ponti is just never going to beat Goldikova over´╗┐ a mile on turf. Weak as the 2010 B.C. Turf was, I really believe that Gio Ponti's class would've carried him to the winners circle in that race. JMO.
