Marvellous week for Hot Danish

Hot Danish will complete a marvellous week for Holbrook Thoroughbreds owner Julie Harris if she wins the G2 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley on Saturday.  Sydney’s pin-up mare is on the second line of betting at $3.50 behind Melbourne flyer Black Caviar who is a $1.65 favourite.

Hot Danish (7m Nothin’ Leica Dane – Hot ‘n’ Breezy by Zephyr Zip) has built up a stunning 27: 16-5-0 scorecard with over $2.16 million in prizemoney since winning on debut at Kembla Grange in September 2006.

The Les Bridge trained mare goes into the Moonee Valley feature on the back of feature wins in the AJC All Aged Stakes, BTC Doomben 10,000, STC Premiere Stakes and AJC The Shorts.

Julie Harris and Port Macquarie breeder David Parker have been on Cloud 9 since her dam Hot ‘n’ Breezy delivered an Encosta de Lago colt earlier this week.

Hot ‘n’ Breezy has been mated with the outstanding Danehill racehorse Nothin’ Leica Dane eight times since retiring to stud 11 years ago.  He is now based at Jamie Mackay ‘s Cangon Stud near Dungog in NSW.

Besides Hot Danish, who cost Bridge $32,000 at the 2005 Inglis Scone yearling sale, Hot ‘n’ Breezy has also thrown Sydney winner Prince Frederik.  She will be bred to Choisir at Coolmore next month.
