Too Darn Hot has made an outstanding start to his stud career, siring four individual Group winners to date, headed by G1 heroine Fallen Angel. On Thursday 5 October, he added a 22nd winner to his record when promising filly Machiavellian Lady broke her maiden at Chelmsford.
The Eve Johnson Houghton-trained filly was prominent throughout the seven-furlong contest and battled impressively close to home to hold off the challenge from Qatar Moon and win by a nose.
Machiavellian Lady was bred by Cliveden Stud and becomes the sixth winner out of the Stakes-winning Street Cry mare Brevity.
Too Darn Hot has also enjoyed a very successful week at Tattersalls, where the October Yearling Sale Book 1 concluded on Thursday. He posted an average of over 190,000 guineas, with a top price of 450,000 guineas given by the Hong Kong Jockey Club for his colt out of Sellsabeel, a half-sister to Alpha Centuari and already dam of a winner by Too Darn Hot in Zenjabeela.
