NEWS: Too Darn Hot and Masar to stand at Dalham Hall Stud
on 08 October 2019
This year’s Sussex Stakes winner Too Darn Hot and 2018 Derby hero Masar will stand their first seasons as stallions in 2020 at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket

Too Darn Hot was champion two-year-old in 2018 and his racing career came to a premature end through injury after Glorious Goodwood, where he recorded a third Group 1 triumph.

Simon Marsh, racing manager for Watership Down Stud, said, “When we set out to create Watership Down Stud with the purchase of Darara, we wanted to breed the best.

“Too Darn Hot comprises everything the Lloyd-Webbers (owners) set out to achieve. He has taken us all on an incredible journey and has everything you want in a stallion – talent, precocity, pedigree and looks.”

Masar won the Solario Stakes as a juvenile but really came into his own at three, romping home in the Craven Stakes, finishing third in the 2000 Guineas and giving becoming the first horse to carry the Godolphin blue silks to victory in the Derby.

Sam Bullard, director of stallions, said: “It is an honour to stand a horse of the quality of Masar.

“He won the race we all strive to win, but had the speed to beat a Group 2-winning sprinter on his six-furlong debut before going on to win the Group 3 Solario Stakes.

“He became the first Derby winner to wear the Godolphin blue and beat champion Roaring Lion all three times they met.

“From one of the best families in the Studbook, he had a higher juvenile rating than his illustrious relatives Galileo and Sea The Stars. Prudent breeders will have him on their list.”

Fees for both horses will be announced at a later date.
