Good Friday proved a ‘great Friday’ for connections of Red Hot Nicc, as the three-year-old son of Nicconi brought to an end a string of placings to return to the winner’s stall at Sale.

Making the most of his inside draw and handy gate speed, the Phillip Stokes-trained gelding positioned up near the speed, hit the lead at the home turn and never surrendered the front en route to the second win of his nine-start career.

A $100,000 Magic Millions purchase for Dalziel Racehorse Syndications, Red Hot Nicc appears to have a promising future after victory in the $100,000 BM64 over 1100m.

Red Hot Nicc has only missed a placing in three starts and almost covered his initial purchase price in just over 12 months of racing.
