Too Darn Hot’s fantastic season continued on Wednesday 25 October when his son Point Sur put up a tremendous performance to land the seven-furlong novice on Newmarket’s Rowley Mile.
Leading the near-side group under William Buick, Charlie Appleby’s charge was asked for his effort two furlongs out and outbattled Native Warrior close to home to prevail by a head. The pair were over five lengths clear of the rest of the field.
Point Sur is a homebred for Godolphin and is out of the Manduro mare Bright Beacon, making him a three-parts brother to three Stakes winners: Gordon Stakes winner and St Leger third New London, dual Listed winner and G2-placed Al Nayyir, and Pat Eddery Stakes winner and Queen’s Vase third Al Dabaran.
Too Darn Hot now has 24 individual winners to his name this year, headed by G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes winner Fallen Angel. He has a further six Black Type performers to his name including G2 May Hill winner Darnation and G1 Dewhurst runner-up Alyanaabi, who also won last month's G3 Tattersalls Stakes.
