Darley has backflipped on decision to send Too Darn Hot back to Australia for a fifth season, announcing that the son of Dubawi would be talking a break from shuttling duties.

It was revealed in April that Too Darn Hot would be one of the most expensive horses standing at Darley's Kelvinside property this year, at a significantly-increased fee of $110,000, but Sheikh Mohammed's operation on Monday announced he would not be returning.

"Too Darn Hot will not shuttle to Darley Australia's Kelvinside base for the 2024 season," Darley said on a statement released on X.

"Following nine straight seasons covering full books in both hemispheres, it has been decided to give the horse a break from shuttling."

Too Darn Hot, a three-time Group 1 winner on the track, stood the past four seasons at Darley at a fee of $44,000.

His oldest Australian progeny are two-year-olds, having had 12 horses win 18 races for $4,133,610, which will see him crowned Australian Champion First-Season Sire at the end of this month.

His star product is Broadsiding, who provided Too Darn Hot with his maiden Australian Group 1 win when he won the Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick, which he followed up with victory in the Group 1 J J Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm.
