Patience is a Virtue
Daniel has nothing but admiration for the group of owners in Manhattan Arch. Bowman also acknowledged the staff at the Ballarat Veterinary Clinic after Manhattan Arch scored an impressive win in a restricted race at Flemington on Saturday.
The lightly raced five-year-old was having his third run back after 80 weeks on the sidelines with numerous problems including two wind operations and a knee operation. Bowman told The Standard he rated Manhattan Arch a big chance of winning after two good runs following the long break and a solid track gallop at Terang last week.
"I was confident Manhattan Arch would be hard to beat," the group one winning trainer said.
"Patience is a big part of racing and Lorraine Dunn and her fellow owners have plenty of it. I've got to thank them for showing the trust in me. I said to them Manhattan Arch had plenty of ability and then he was struck down with a few injures but to win a race in town for them is very rewarding. I understand owning racehorses is an expensive business but sometimes it's about giving horses the time to get over whatever issues they have or to mature. The Ballarat Vet Clinic has done a magnificent job in sorting out Manhattan Arch's problems."
From his nine starts, Manhattan Arch has won two races and been in the minor place getters stall on five occasions.
