Top-Weighted (127 Lbs.) Princess Dream Wins First Episode S. – Freud’s 3rd Miler Winner in 9 Days

By Rab Hagin

In North and South America, dirt and turf, runners by FREUD showcased their miler talent on Saturday, June 30 and again on Sunday, July 8, when odds-on daughter PRINCESS DREAM ($147,539) won Suffolk Downs’ First Episode Stakes under top weight of 127 pounds for her third tally in 68 days. Princess Dream’s victory helped to boost Freud to among the top-30 living North American-based sires of 2018 in Northern Hemisphere progeny earnings (through July 9) – and the only member of that elite group standing outside Kentucky. Princess Dream is one of three Freud homebred six-figure earners owned by Patricia L. Moseley that have won in June and July. The others are LA MONEDA ($175,544), who dashed a mile in 1:33.11 on Belmont turf on June 30, and DREAM DOCTOR ($146,035), who nearly equaled a 30-year-old course record on Suffolk Downs turf on June 9.

Princess Dream, spotting weight to all her First Episode rivals, including winners of the 2016 and 2017 renewals of that two-turn event, was challenged repeatedly after gaining the lead on the backstretch. Her first threat came from the 2016 First Episode winner, who was closely pursued by the 2017 winner. After those two had dropped out of contention, a new contender – a six-figure-earner in receipt of eight pounds in weight from Princess Dream – loomed in the stretch on Princess Dream’s inside and pulled nearly even with her, but the daughter of Freud reasserted command and prevailed.

The one-mile First Episode marked the first victory beyond six furlongs for Princess Dream, who is three-for-three in 2018 following victories in Finger Lakes’ five-furlong Miss Patriot Handicap on May 1 and Suffolk Downs’ six-furlong Isadorable Stakes (for the second consecutive year) on June 9. She has won six of her 12 starts, placed second or third five times and has never finished worse than fourth (once).

Owner-breeder Moseley’s aforementioned La Moneda captured a $77,000 Belmont allowance for open fillies and mares by 3¼ lengths as the favored co-topweight. Her 1:33.11 clocking – more than a full second faster than her winning mile on the same course while carrying four pounds less three weeks earlier – was accomplished by running her final quarter-mile (23.25) faster than the contest’s opening quarter. Placing second and third behind her were rivals coming off stakes-placed efforts on NYRA turf. Another of Freud’s June 30 miler winners, Liam F. Benson’s new six-figure-earning NOT SO QUIET MAN, beat 13 rivals – ten of them six-figure-earners, including a favored Grade 2 winner of $396,950 – on Monmouth Park turf. Not So Quiet Man also has won at Saratoga and Meadowlands, but this was his first victory at beyond 5½ furlongs. Romping by 5¼ lengths over the $274,164-earning even-money runner-up at equal weights in a six-furlong Finger Lakes allowance on July 9 was stakes-winning Freud colt BAVARO ($192,140), who races for owner-trainer Jeremiah C. Englehart and is Freud’s 14th Northern Hemisphere repeat winner of 2018 – topping all New York sires.

Missing narrowly in a Group 1 Argentine event at 1,600 meters (about a mile) in 1:34.83 on June 30 was Freud’s Argentine-bred juvenile daughter, SUMMER LOVE, who led nine rivals to her final stride in the Gran Premio Estrellas (“Stars”) Juvenile Fillies on Palermo dirt in Buenos Aires. The race was run in dense fog, with the field disappearing from view at various junctures, and a latter part of the “Stars” card that day was postponed because of weather. Summer Love, a homebred for La Leyenda Stable, had won first-out by six lengths on wet (“heavy”) Palermo dirt on June 1 at 1,400 meters (about seven furlongs). In her Group 1 outing and second start, she beat the favorite, a Group 2 winner, by almost five lengths.

For the second consecutive season – despite the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against South American currencies – Freud’s Southern Hemisphere progeny have topped $1-million in U.S. equivalent earnings for the just-completed 2017-2018 racing season. Freud was represented by 63 winners for the season, including five stakes winners and five stakes-placed, boosting his cumulative Southern Hemisphere progeny earnings to more than $4-million, with a total of 11 black-type stakes winners.

Mission Impazible’s 3YO Son Ben Z Rolls Wins Stakes Debut in Finger Lakes’ Black Type Ontario County

By Rab Hagin

Joseph L. Maloney Racing’s homebred BEN Z ROLLS scored his third victory in four starts in his stakes debut in Finger Lakes’ black type Ontario County Stakes for 3-year-olds going six furlongs on Monday, June 25, as the MISSION IMPAZIBLE colt charged from last to first in the final quarter-mile. Making his second start off a six-month layoff, the intriguing chestnut was completely overlooked by the wagering public and trailed all his rivals by multiple lengths until looping three-to-four wide through the turn. Ben Z Rolls is the 27th winner in 2018 from two crops to race sired by Mission Impazible, whose progeny earnings for the year already have topped $1,112,000. Mission Impazible’s cumulative progeny earnings from those two crops are now approaching $3.6-million.

Ben Z Rolls had won first-out against six rivals as a 2-year-old last November, scoring a stalking victory by 3¾ lengths over the odds-on runner-up while going 5½ furlongs at Finger Lakes. He was back a week later at Finger Lakes in a six-furlong allowance for open 2-year-olds, going gate-to-wire to tally by a length and a half as the second choice among six, which included a recent stakes runner-up. A six-month winter layoff followed, and Ben Z Rolls returned to competition as a 3-year-old on May 22 in a 5½-furlong Finger Lakes allowance for open 3-year-olds and up on a sloppy track, running well late in a fourth-place effort that had the earmarks of a workout. Largely dismissed in the Ontario County, Ben Z Rolls rolled by his rivals in the stretch like they were beneath his league, and he was ready to go longer.

Other 3-year-old sons of Mission Impazible finishing strongly in recent stakes were COLLECTIVE EFFORT and SPECTACULAR KID, who placed second and third, respectively, among ten in Belmont’s $100,000 New York Stallion Spectacular Bid for 3-year-olds going seven furlongs on turf on Sunday, June 24. Collective Effort, who races for Loudmouth Racing, LLC and Dark Horse Racing Stable, lunged at the start and hit the gate, breaking next-to-last and immediately conceding four lengths to his rivals. He was only up to seventh-place with a quarter-mile to go but then overtook five rivals to place second, boosting his earnings to $154,163. Collective Effort was multiple stakes-placed on dirt as a 2-year-old before winning a $62,000 Belmont maiden special at 1 1/16 miles on turf by 3¼ lengths in a stakes-caliber 1:40.40 on Memorial Day weekend.

Spectacular Kid, Alex Kazdan’s versatile runner, was sixth with a quarter-mile to go in the Spectacular Bid and passed four rivals in the stretch to place third. Like Collective Effort, he also is multiple stakes-placed (at Aqueduct) on dirt and most recently had won a five-furlong Finger Lakes allowance for open 3-year-olds and up on a wet track in May. In Spectacular Kid’s turf debut three weeks prior to the Spectacular Bid in a $65,000 Belmont allowance at seven furlongs, he had placed third among eight (on firm turf) while running more than a full second slower than his subsequent Spectacular Bid clocking.

Mission Impazible’s first crop (foals of 2014) had placed him among the top-dozen North American-based first-crop sires of 2016 based on Northern Hemisphere progeny earnings, but his second-crop runners have won almost as many races and earned about the same amount of money as his first-crop runners. Offspring from Mission Impazible’s third crop are 2-year-olds of 2018.

Freud’s Top-Weighted Therapist Sets 2nd Stakes Record of 2018 in Belmont’s NYSS Spectacular Bid

By Rab Hagin

Breaking from the outside post as the youngest among ten starters, odds-on THERAPIST ($308,725) won Belmont’s $100,000 New York Stallion Spectacular Bid Stakes by two lengths under top weight in 1:21.07 for seven furlongs on turf on Sunday, June 24, giving the FREUD colt his second stakes record of 2018. Therapist had to race five-wide down the backstretch to secure a reasonable position on the turn, where he threaded between rivals before overtaking the front-runner, setting a six-furlong fraction of 1:08.79 and drawing clear. His winning time broke the Spectacular Bid stakes record – held since 2013 by a multiple stakes winner of $657,285 carrying four pounds less than Therapist – by nearly three-fifths of a second. A homebred for Lynn and Richard’s Leahy’s Oak Bluff Stables and co-bred by winning trainer Christophe Clement, Therapist was the only May-foaled 3-year-old among the event’s ten sophomores.

Clement, who also had trained Therapist’s dam – a two-time winner who was not a stakes producer prior to being bred to Freud – observed that Therapist has “a great turn of foot.” Clement also acknowledged that the colt had been “a touch flat” in his previous start 22 days earlier while coming off a nine-week layoff (“a little more anxious than what we like, but he’s a pretty busy horse mentally”). Clement pointed out that Therapist belonged to a small group of standouts produced from Oak Bluff Stable’s “amazing breeding program,” adding, “I’m just lucky to train for (them).” Therapist was conceived when Freud’s multiple graded-winning LUBASH ($1,515,139) was being trained by Clement.

Winning jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., who had piloted Therapist to a stakes record mile in 1:33.42 in Gulfstream Park’s $127,500 Cutler Bay Stakes on March 31, had “a lot of confidence” in Therapist: “The way he was feeling today, I thought he was going to run the way he ran.”

Therapist is the third son of Freud to win the Spectacular Bid, following DARRIN’S DILEMMA for Michael Dubb and Bethlehem Stables LLC in 2011 and CLOUD CONTROL for owner-breeders Chester and Mary Broman in 2016. The Spectacular Bid marked Therapist’s fifth victory in seven starts and fourth stakes tally. He is Freud’s 12th Northern Hemisphere 2018 repeat winner, which leads all New York-based sires.

Therapist was Freud’s sixth Northern Hemisphere winner within a nine-day span (June 16-24), beginning with Daniel J. Feiss’ stakes-winning DR. SHANE ($412,271), who came within about a fifth of a second of Belmont’s seven-furlong course record while scoring his first turf victory in 1:19.44 on June 16. Favored among eight in a $70,000 Belmont allowance optional, Dr. Shane led gate-to-wire, setting a 20.97 intermediate quarter-mile split (for a half-mile fraction of 43.57) and winning by 4¾ lengths. Winning 5½-furlong allowances at Finger Lakes by daylight margins on June 23 were Freud’s new six-figure-earning son, FREUD’S AFFAIR, and four-time winning daughter, AQUARIUS. Freud’s Affair, campaigned by owner-breeder Lisa Ann Reed under the care of trainer and co-breeder Christopher John Progno, beat odds-on runner-up and co-topweight BAVARO ($180,440), a stakes-winning son of Freud owned and trained by Jeremiah C. Englehart. Aquarius, another Freud homebred for Patricia L. Moseley, scored by almost two lengths. Tallying by almost two lengths at seven furlongs on Evangeline Downs dirt on June 20 was Freud’s stakes-placed Louisiana-bred son, JUST STORMIN ($189,445), who races for Charles Carlton. Easily winning a Finger Lakes 5½-furlong maiden special for open fillies and mares by eight lengths in her debut on June 18 was May-foaled 3-year-old Freud filly RISKY ANALYSIS, a homebred for Chester and Mary R. Broman and the only first-time starter – as well as the youngest – among seven.

In South America, four Freud fillies scored in Argentina, Peru, and Uruguay during June 18-24, highlighted on June 24 by 3-year-olds LA BOMBON going 1,900 meters (about 1 3/16 miles) on Monterrico turf in Peru and CHIA F going 1,000 meters (about five furlongs) on Maronas dirt in Uruguay. La Bombon, an Argentine-bred racing for Agustin Gabriel Stable, tallied by almost two lengths against 13 rivals in 1:56.11 and now has two wins on turf and one on dirt in six starts in 2018. Chia F, a Uruguayan-bred racing for Rincon del Rey Stable, romped by six lengths against six rivals in her one-turn outing, clocking 57.34 on the tight-turn track to come within less than a second of the track record in her fourth victory. Breaking their maidens on dirt at Buenos Aires-area tracks in Argentina were Argentine-bred Freud fillies GOING FREE at 1,400 meters (about seven furlongs) in her second start on June 18 at Palermo and ARTISTAS FASHION at 1,100 meters (about 5½ furlongs) at San Isidro on June 20. Going Free, a homebred for La Pesadilla Stable, broke from the outside post among 13 and won by two lengths in 1:22.96, improving significantly from her second-placed debut among 13 in February. Artistas Fashion, a 3-year-old filly owned by Mamina Stable, won by a length and a half against 11 rivals with a big stretch run in the final quarter-mile.

Placing in black type events on June 16 and June 24 were Freud’s stakes-winning Argentine-bred sons MUST GO ON ($329,154 in U.S. equivalent earnings) at Palermo and CHARPENTIER at Monterrico respectively and 3-year-old New York-bred daughter MENTALITY ($111,834) at Belmont on June 24. Must Go On, a Group 1 winner on turf owned by Tata Y Tigre Stable, placed second among ten in Palermo’s Group 2 Clasico General Belgrano at 2,500 meters (about 1 9/16 miles) on dirt in his second start (and second group-placing) off a one-year layoff. Charpentier, a 4-year-old multiple listed winner at Monterrico for Dona Licha Stable coming off a 12¼-length listed tally three weeks earlier (on June 3), placed third in the Group 2 Clasico OSAF at 1,600 meters (about a mile) on dirt after having led most of the way. Mentality, owned by Lindy Farms, gained her first black type by placing third among 11 in Belmont’s $100,000 New York Stallion Cupecoy’s Joy Stakes after having finished less than a length behind the winner of Aqueduct’s $100,000 Mizdirection Stakes for open 3-year-old fillies going six furlongs on turf in April. Mentality 29 days earlier had beaten the Cupecoy’s Joy winner by 2¼ lengths in a seven-furlong Belmont turf allowance (in 1:20.82) at equal weights, but she was spotting four pounds to that same rival in the Cupecoy’s Joy and placed a length behind her.

Mission Impazible’s Winners at 4 Tracks on Dirt, Turf & Synthetic During June 7-14 Boost His Numbers

By Rab Hagin

Four winners at four different tracks and three different distances on dirt, turf and all-weather during June 7-14 from the first two crops of MISSION IMPAZIBLE have boosted their sire to among the top dozen North American-based 3rd-crop sires in 2018 progeny earnings through the first three weekends of June. Mission Impazible has almost as many winners and races won from his second crop as from his first, whose accomplishments in 2016 had placed him among that year’s top-dozen North American-based 1st-crop sires. Mission Impazible also ranked among the top-dozen North American-based 2nd-crop sires for 2017 and is among 10 stallions that have ranked among the top dozen North American-based 1st-crop sires, 2nd-crop sires, and 3rd-crop sires, respectively, for 2016, 2017, and 2018 (to date).

Winning on June 7 at Churchill Downs was Mission Impazible’s 3-year-old son HONOR MISSION, who races for Magdalena Racing (Sherri McPeek) under the care of trainer Kenneth McPeek and scored his second one-turn mile victory at that track in 18 days as the favorite among seven. Winning on June 12 at Finger Lakes was Twin Creek Racing Stables, LLC’s and Quarter Pole Club’s semi-homebred Mission Impazible filly, MY MISSION, who came off a 250-day layoff to score her second consecutive victory by almost two lengths at odds-on among seven going 5½ furlongs. Breaking her maiden from the tenth post against 11 going six furlongs on Belmont turf on June 13 was Jim Caterbone’s 3-year-old Mission Impazible filly, SCRIPTED, who despite brushing the starting gate, dropping back to tenth, and altering course four times got up to win in 1:09.51. Scoring his first all-weather track victory on Presque Isle Downs’ Tapeta surface on June 14 was Chester and Mary Broman’s 3-year-old homebred son of Mission Impazible, FORWARD MOTION, who also has won on Aqueduct turf and “drew clear” at odds-on among seven 3-year-olds and up going six furlongs.
