Too Darn Hot sired another new winner on Saturday, 16 September when his two-year-old daughter It’s Hot In Here broke her maiden on her second start at Meadowlands, USA. The young stallion has had tremendous week, as not only did he sire his first G1 winner when Fallen Angel landed the Moyglare Stud Stakes in Ireland on Sunday, but a few days later Darnation added further Group success to her c.v. with victory in the G2 May Hill Stakes on the opening day of the St Leger Festival meeting.
It’s Hot In Here, who is trained by Chad Brown, jumped smartly from the gates and was soon settled to track the leader on the outside. Always travelling strongly under Nik Juarez, the filly began to quicken with less than a quarter of a mile to run and soon took up the lead, Competitive Threat briefly challenged but was unable to catch It’s Hot In Here who went on to prevail by a length and a quarter in the mile contest.
Bred in Ireland by Ballylinch Stud, It’s Hot In Here was a €110,000 purchase from Arqana Deauville August Yearling sale. She is out of the Stakes-placed mare Janicellaine (Beat Hollow), who has bred four other winners.
Too Darn Hot is now the sire of 15 individual winners, including four Black Type performers, for not only is he the sire of Fallen Angel and Darnation, who have won two Group races apiece, but he is also responsible for German G3-scorer Carolina Reaper and Listed-placed colt Son.
