Mick Dee will ride Mike Moroney’s star colt Harlech in the Listed Shaw’s Wires Ropes Uncle Remus Stakes (1400m) at Ellerslie on Boxing Day.
Melbourne-based Dee rode Sheezallmine to victory in the Stewards at Riccarton last month.
Dee will ride Pinmedown in the Zabeel Classic on Wednesday as well as Harlech.
Moroney is looking forward to eventually getting Harlech to Australia to not only chase the big money on offer but also boost his stallion profile.
“He’ll end up in Aussie, but at this stage he’s going to stay in New Zealand for a while,” Moroney said.
