The undefeated European Champion 2YO Too Darn Hot is new to Darley Kelvinside this season

The undefeated European Champion 2YO Too Darn Hot is new to Darley Kelvinside this season having had his striking Dewhurst Stakes victory ‘assessed as the best of the century.’

Classed as Europe’s principal juvenile event Too Darn Hot cruised to a 2¾ length victory in the Dewhurst Stakes 7f over Phoenix Stakes winner Advertise, with Anthony Van Dyck in third.

In coming off a 1¾ length win over Phoenix of Spain in the 7f Champagne Stakes, Too Darn Hot took out the Solario Stakes 7f by 4 lengths, having scored a 7 length victory in an 8 furlong maiden on debut.

Also Champion European 3YO with a 127 Timeform rating, Too Darn Hot defeated Circus Maximus in the all-aged Sussex Stakes of 8f, before taking out the Prix Jean Prat at 1400 metres.

Too Darn Hot was second in the Irish 2000 Guineas, before going onto be runner-up to Telecaster in the Dante Stakes and finishing third in the Royal Ascot St James’s Palace Stakes.

Owner-breeder Lord Lloyd Webber was ecstatic in saying “Too Darn Hot has already taken us on an incredible journey, and now open him up to a completely new market is beyond our wildest dreams.”

“He is in the best possible hands and we will certainly be asking Simon Marsh to find some wonderful mares with which to support him in Australia.”

Trained by John Gosden and always ridden by Frankie Dettori, Too Darn Hot stands 15.3½hh and is by Britain’s most sought-after sire Dubawi, and is a full-brother to Gr2 winners Lah Ti Dar and So Mi Dar.

His triple Gr1 winning Spingspiel dam Dar Re Mi is half-sister to Gr1 sires Rewilding, Darazari, Dariyoun plus Diaghilev from the Gr1 winner Darara, the family of Prix du Jockey-Club winning sire Darshaan.

Also standing his first season at Kelvinside is Microphone, who in an elite crop of juveniles in 2018-19 was crowned Champion Australian 2YO.

Darley described Microphone’s ‘exceptional victory in defeating Loving Gaby, Castelvecchio, Kiamichi and Probabeel in the best edition of the Randwick Sires’ Produce Stakes for 30 years.’

In addition to the Randwick Sires’ Produce Stakes of 1400m, Microphone won the Skyline Stakes at 1200m, the Talindert Stakes of 1100m and a 1000m maiden event at Flemington.

In finishing second to Kiamichi on a heavy track Microphone was the first colt home in the Golden Slipper Stakes, having previously finishing second in the Blue Diamond Preview.

At three-years Microphone won the Autumn Stakes of 1400m and was an excellent second to Shadow Hero in the Randwick Guineas. Also, he was third in the Hobartville Stakes and Roman Consul Stakes.

“Microphone was a genuine Champion colt from a stellar crop that has since proven itself against older horses,” said Alastair Pulford, Darley Head of Sales with Microphone receiving a 121 Timeform rating.

“He’s by the world’s best sire of two-year-old’s, and there are Stakes winners right through his maternal family and being a very good-looking horse in the mould of his father.”

Sired by Champion Australian Sire Exceed and Excel, Microphone at 16.1½hh is from the stakes winning Anabaa mare Sung, who is a full-sister to Yell, the Champion Australia Sprinter.

It’s the family of Written Tycoon and Holler, with his second dam being the stakes winning Vocalist, a half-sister to Anthems, the QTC Sires’ Produce Stakes and Queensland Classic winner.

Managing Director of Godolphin Australia, Vincent Cox stated, “Microphone, Blue Point and Too Darn Hot represent true class – these three stallions are absolutely mouth-watering prospects.”

Darley further added ‘Blue Point, All Too Hot and Microphone, sons of Shamardal, Dubawi and Exceed and Excel, will launch their southern hemisphere stud careers in 2020.’

‘They are Europe’s Champion Sprinter, Europe’s Champion Two and Three-Year-old and Australia’s Champion juvenile respectively and offer local breeders all the speed and precocity they demand.’
