|New Zealand Derby (2003)|
|Last updated on July 3, 2007|
Coming into the Derby as a winner of only a maiden at Matamata, the gelding was not among the favourites for the Group 1 race. But after being given a beautiful rails ride by Michael Coleman, he simply outstayed his rivals and won by a long head with favourite Mount Street in second place.
The win gave Paul Moroney, who has bought countless Group 1 winners at sales all around the world, the first Group 1 winner he has actually bred.
Cut The Cake was expected to go on and become a leading stayer after his Derby win, but he has been disappointing in only winning two races since, one of which was over hurdles. He ran his last race in 2006.
