Jasper Krone rockets to victory in G3 CBC Sho at Chukyo Race Course

First Graded Stakes triumph for four-year-old Frosted colt

Jasper Krone took the lead right out of the starting gate and never looked back on his way to capturing the G3 CBC Sho at Chukyo on Sunday, 2 July.

The four-year-old Frosted colt won for the fifth time in 13 starts and notched his first Graded Stakes win when taking the six-furlong turf contest.

Jasper Krone was hustled to the lead right out of the starting gate by jockey Taisei Danno. The chestnut colt quickly opened up a one-length lead over his rivals. Jasper Krone maintained his lead through the far turn and into the stretch, and despite racing a bit greenly in the closing stages held on to win by a half-length over Thank You Yuga.

Jasper Krone was bred in Kentucky by Machmer Hall and Godolphin and was purchased by his current connections for $90,000 at the 2021 OBS March 2-Year-Old Sale. He is out the Stakes-placed Kitten’s Joy mare, Fancy Kitten, and hails from the family of Stakes winners Jump Start (G2) and Daring Devil.

In addition to Jasper Krone, Frosted is also the sire of 2023 Stakes winners Frost Point (G3 Doubledogdare Stakes), Ice Dancing (G3 Santa Ynez), Flakes, Late Frost and Arctic Arrogance, runner-up in both the G3 Withers and Listed Jerome Stakes.
