Dubawi officially Hot

Sire of the two best juveniles in European Classifications

Dubawi, the best stallion in the world, is now officially responsible for the two best colts in Europe in Too Darn Hot and Quorto, named the two highest-rated two-year-olds in Europe in 2018.

The Classifications, compiled by a panel of handicappers and released in London on Wednesday, 23 January, were headed by the John Gosden-trained Too Darn Hot (rated 126) clear of his generation by 5lb.

Too Darn Hot was unbeaten in four starts as a juvenile, including the G1 Darley Dewhurst Stakes, and carries the colours of his breeder Lord Lloyd-Webber. He will retire as a Darley stallion at the conclusion of his racing career and will stand at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket.

His rating is the equivalent of Frankel as a two-year-old in 2010 — that year Frankel was rated equal to Dream Ahead.

Fellow Dubawi colt, the Charlie Appleby-trained Quorto (rated 121), was clear second highest-rated following his victories in the G2 Superlative Stakes and the G1 National Stakes at the Curragh.

Dubawi is the only UK-based stallion ever to sire 100 individual Group winners, a milestone he reached last July He is sire of 38 G1 winners to date, including his stallion sons Night Of Thunder (whose first two-year-olds will hit the racecourse later this year) and Postponed, whose eagerly awaited first foals will be arriving soon.
