|Cut The Cake is a thoroughbred racehorse out of Icing On The Cake by Yamanin Vital. He was born around 2000 in New Zealand, and was bred by Paul Moroney.|
|New Zealand Derby (2003)|
|Horse (Equus ferus caballus)|

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 has not raced since 2006 and is assumingly retired.
