Manduro (foaled March 9, 2002 in Germany) is a World Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Sired by Monsun, a multiple Group One winner in Germany, he is out of the mare Mandellicht, a daughter of Northern Dancer's son Be My Guest who was the Leading sire in Great Britain & Ireland in 1982.
Manduro was purchased by Baron Georg von Ullmann, a German member of the Oppenheim banking family, who owns Gestüt Schlenderhan, one of Germany's oldest stud farms. Baron von Ullmann, who owns Manduro's sire, had previously met with considerable success in racing with a number of horses, the most notable of which was another son of Monsun, Shirocco.
At age two and three Manduro raced in Germany under trainer Peter Schiergen where he notably won the 2004 Group III Preis des Winterfavoriten and 2005's Preis der Deutschen Einheit. In 2006, he raced from a base in France for trainer Andre Fabre where he won the Group II Prix d'Harcourt at Longchamp Racecourse in Paris and finished second twice and third three times in five Group One events.
Ridden by Stephane Pasquier, in 2007 Manduro was undefeated in five starts and the dominant horse in Europe for most of the year. He won three major races in France and two in England but came out of his win in September's Prix Foy with a cannon bone fracture that ended his racing career and which kept him out of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp Racecourse. The Arc was won by Dylan Thomas whom Manduro had earlier defeated by a length and a quarter in the Prince of Wales's Stakes.
In January 2008, the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA) ranked Manduro No.1 in the world for 2007.
