Dee to Ride Rising Red

Tuesday, 28th February 2017

Caulfield-based jockey Michael Dee will return to his homeland to partner the Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained Rising Red in Saturday's $1 million Gr1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) at Ellerslie, reports NZ Racing Desk. A son of Westbury Stud stallion Redwood, Rising Red proved too good for his older rivals at Sandown last week and previously had finished a closing second to Saturday's impressive Gr2 Autumn Classic winner Farson. The Busuttin-Young team have enjoyed good success with staying 3YOs, having won the Victorian and Australian Derby's with Sangster and Tavago respectively.
