Worldly Manner, one of the few sons of Riverman at stud, will stand at David Bailey’s Two B Rockin Ranch near Bridgeport, Texas. He was bought by Bailey and Jim Percival of White Cat Farm in Kansas. His fee is $1,500.
One of the best 2-year-olds of his year, Worldly Manner won the Del Mar Futurity (gr. II) and Best Pal Stakes (gr. III). He earned $251,857 in his career.
As a stallion, Worldly Manner has sired stakes winners Spot the Diplomat and Kilbride Rd, both of whom were stakes winners in 2006. Spot the Diplomat won two stakes at Del Mar that year as a 2-year-old and also placed in the Norfolk Breeders’ Cup Stakes (gr. II). Kilbride Rd’s big win came in a grade I hurdle event.
Twelve-year-old Worldly Manner is out of the stakes-winning Flying Paster mare Lady Pastor.
