SALEZ became the first winner for triple Group 1 hero Manduro when easily taking themile maiden at Vichy on Tuesday.

The Pia Brandt-trained filly, who carries the colours of her breeder Ecurie des Monceaux, was making her second start, having run second on her debut at Compiegne last month.

She isthe third foal and second winner out of Senderlea, an unraced Giant's Causeway half-sister to Prix Greffulhe winner Quest For Honor.

Manduro has 127 first-crop two-year-olds to run for him who were bred off a €40,000 fee. From six runners in Britain and Ireland, he has been represented by the placed pair Courtesy Call and Alice Rose.

Rated the champion two-year-old Germany in 2004, Manduro developed into a brilliant older runner for Andre Fabre, winning the Prince Of Wales's Stakes, Prix Jacques le Marois and Prix d'Ispahan. In all, he won ten of 18 starts and nearly £1.04 million in prize-money.

The son of Monsun stood the 2011 season at Kildangan Stud for €15,000.
