Frost Point took command soon after the break and never looked back on her way to posting a six-and-a-quarter length victory in the Listed Heavenly Prize Invitational at Aqueduct on Saturday, 18 February.
It was the first Stakes win for the regally-bred daughter of Frosted, who races as a homebred for Godolphin. The victory improved the five-year-old’s record to 4-3-2 in 10 career starts.
Breaking sharply from the inside post, Frost Point zipped up along the rail to take the lead shortly after the start. Under confident handling from jockey Jorge Vargas Jr., Frost Point cruised through the opening stages of the one-mile contest, as she maintained a comfortable two-length lead over her nearest rival, Falconet.
Falconet and Battle Bling mounted brief challenges on the far turn, but Frost Point quickly put the race to bed, opening up on her rivals and cruising through the stretch and to the finish line to post an impressive six-and-a-quarter length win.
Bred in Kentucky, Frost Point is out of Balletto (Timber Country), winner of the G1 Frizette and placed in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, G1 Beldame, G1 Personal Ensign, etc. In addition to Frost Point, Balletto has also produced Villanesca (Distorted Humor), winner of the Magnolia Stakes and third in the G1 Ballerina.
In addition to Frost Point, Frosted is also the sire of the promising three-year-old filly Ice Dancing, winner of the G3 Santa Ynez Stakes and the colt, Arctic Arrogance, runner-up in both the G3 Withers and Listed Jerome Stakes this year. Frosted has also sired the juvenile Stakes winners Frosted Departure (Renaissance Stakes) and Post Time (Maryland Juvenile Stakes).
Frosted is standing the 2023 breeding season at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $10,000, stands and nurses.
