Frosted scores another Australian juvenile success

Frost Flower gives his sire his second Flemington winner

A stunning combination of speed and style gave Frost Flowers a debut Flemington victory and continued the outstanding start to the stud career of his sire Frosted.

Frost Flowers asserted clear superiority over her opposition in Saturday’s New Year Sprint making her Frosted’s 18th winner and his second in Australia following on from the success of Ingratiating in a Listed race over the same course and distance in October.

After a clean start, the filly showed impeccable racing manners to settle just behind the leaders in the straight, 1,000m race, surging to the front with 200m to run and holding a 1-1/2 length advantage on the line over Tayla’s Moment.

Frost Flowers is out of the winning Exceed And Excel mare Itameri whose previous foal was Godolphin’s Stakes-winning colt Hanseatic.

Itameri, who was raced in Australia by Sheikh Mohammed, is from the family of the unbeaten world champion Black Caviar and the G1 winner Magnus.

Frosted stood his most recent southern-hemisphere season at Northwood Park in Victoria and will stand at Jonabell Farm, Kentucky at a fee of $25,000, stands and nurses, in the coming US breeding season.
