Frosted’s Cave Hill cruises home by six at Indiana Grand

Becomes the 10th first-crop winner for his sire

Although unplaced in his first start earlier this month, the experienced gained by Frosted's two-year-old son Cave Hill was readily apparent on October 28th as he rolled to a convincing six-length win at Indiana Grand. 

Cave Hill broke alertly in the one mile and 70 yard event and was just inside the leader after the first quarter of a mile. He switched positions with the pacesetter after the half-mile mark and never relinquished the lead, striding home much the best over a track rated sloppy.

Bred in Kentucky by his owner, Godolphin, Cave Hill is out of Painted Lady who is a full sister to G1 winner Nobo True. Painted Lady has also produced G2 winner Skylighter (dam of G3-placed Sky Painter), Black Type winner Speckled (dam of 2020 G2 winner Pixelate), Stakes-placed Brushed Gold (dam of G2-placed Tumbaga), and Lady Lavery (dam of Stakes winner/G3-placed Meru).

Cave Hill is the 10th winner for Frosted. His other winners are TDN Rising Star and G1-placed Travel Column, TDN Rising Star Inject, Stakes-placed Frost Me, eight-length Belmont winner and Stakes-placed Likeable and Ten for Ten, ten-length Churchill winner Frosted Prayer, Saratoga winner Restored Order, recent Keeneland winner Inspector Frost and two-time winner Tkotchke. Frosted is the only freshman sire with multiple TDN Rising Stars and the only stallion in America with three juveniles to have run an 80+ Beyer this year.
