oo Darn Hot put up an awesome display to win the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday afternoon.
The son of Dubawi and Dar Re Mi is now four from four having taken the Solario Stakes and the Champagne Stakes en route to this Group 1 triumph.
Trained by John Gosden, Too Darn Hot raced keenly in the early stages of the contest but jockey Frankie Dettori took back and got him settled in the midfield.
He hit his customary flat spot with half a mile to run but when Frankie switched him to the outer, he produced a sintilating turn of foot to surge to the front in a matter of strides.
Once in the lead, he motored clear before being eased down to win by two and three quarter lengths from Group 1 winner Advertise.
Too Darn Hot, who is owned and bred by Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber, is a first Group 1 winner for his dam Dar Re Mi.
Gosden said: “They went a good gallop but he was on the mettle and Frankie had to get him some cover, which he did nicely.
“He didn’t look particularly happy on the ridges and going into the dip but once he hit the rising ground he took off and we really saw what he can do.
“He’s such a brave horse, he gives one hundred per cent.
“His mother was a star and his father was a legend, so he’s bred to do this.
“He’s done remarkably well to go from a maiden to a Group 3 to a Group 2 and now to a Group 1 in just four starts, and he’s got to come back for the 2,000 Guineas now.”
Dettori added: “It’s the first time he’s been challenged, the first three races were non-events. He’s learnt a lot. He’s an amazing horse. Now we can dream for next year, he’s done everything we’ve asked him to. He’s bred in the purple, it’s great for connections, and we’re going to have a very sleepless winter. ”
