Michael Dee returned to his roots to ride Te Akau Racing's Prise De Fer to victory in the Group Two Rich Hill Mile

Melbourne-based New Zealander Michael Dee has made sure another ex-pat kiwi, James McDonald, has not taken all the limelight at the Ellerslie carnival.

Dee returned to his roots to ride Te Akau Racing’s Prise De Fer in the Group Two Rich Hill Mile (1600m) on Wednesday while McDonald rode four winners and steered Queensland sprinter Winter Bride to second in the Group One Railway.

The Jamie Richards-trained four-year-old Prise De Fer claimed his fourth successive win in the 1600m-race.

After racing three-wide with cover, Prise De Fer strode clear in the straight to put two lengths on Yearn.

“I’m really pleased for him as he’s done a great job to win four on the hop,” Richards told NZ Racing Desk.

“The team at home have done a wonderful job with him and I thought Mick Dee gave him every possible chance, ten out of ten.

“He’s got that lovely big, long, loping stride and looks like he is only going half pace but he quickened well and put a hole in a decent field there.

“He’s got a bright future and will only continue to get better.”

Richards said the relationship between Te Akau and Dee went back a long way.

“There is a lot of history there as he was apprenticed at Te Akau before even I was there,” he said.

“He’s good mates with Dan Miller, who has been an important man to Te Akau as well, so it’s great to have Mick in the team.”

Dee was lavish in his praise for Prise De Fer who was a $100,000 yearling by Te Akau Racing boss, David Ellis.

“I ended up in a nice enough spot from the wide alley,” Dee said.

“I was just travelling so well I had to pop out earlier than I wanted too but he was just too good in the end.

“The further the better for him as he was running through the line after being in front a long way out.”
