The brilliance of Frosted’s first Australian crop received further endorsement when Cloudy scored her second win - and defeated another by her sire - in the Listed Dequetteville Stakes at Morphettville.
Cloudy’s last-stride lunge made her Frosted’s fifth winner in Australia and his fourth Stakes winner worldwide.
Frosted’s presence on the local scene was announced in the spring when Ingratiating became his first Stakes winner, taking out the Listed Maribyrnong Trial at Flemington in October.
He has since taken his total of individual winners to 31 while in Australia he has now had five winners, two of them at Stakes level with only one of his first nine to the races having so far missed a place.
Cloudy had won a Bendigo maiden at her fourth start and was having her sixth outing in the Dequetteville.
The filly travelled smoothly one off the fence in third place behind the front-running Translation for most of the race and responded strongly when called on by jockey Todd Pannell.
In a stirring finish she did best to deny her stablemate, who is also by Frosted and also races in the Godolphin blue.
Frosted is standing at Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for $25,000, stands and nurses.
