  • Manuel was an American Thoroughbred racehorse that won the 1899 Kentucky Derby in what was deemed a very uneventful race. He was foaled in Kentucky and was a bay colt sired by Bob Miles out of the mare Espanita. He is related through his grandsire to 1907 Derby winner Pink Star. Manuel was bred by George James Long at his Louisville stud farm, Bashford Manor Stable. Long retained ownership of Manuel throughout his two-year old season, finally selling him in October 1898 to the Morris brothers for $15,000.[3] A few days after the Derby at Churchill Downs, Manuel injured his leg by stepping in a hole in the track which prompted his withdraw from racing for the rest of the season. Manuel was sold to Frank Morel as a four-year old in October 1900 for $500 at the Morris Park sale. Manuel only raced for two seasons and did not produce any registered offspring. A 1910 Daily Racing Form article states that he died shortly thereafter as a four-year old.
