Cloud Control Clocks 1:21.85 to Win Belmont’s 7F $100K NYSS Spectacular Bid – Is Freud’s 48th SW

Posted on Categories Stallions

freudbannernewsIn a strikingly professional performance for a third start, Chester and Mary Broman Sr.’s homebred CLOUD CONTROL beat six rivals in Belmont’s $100,000 New York Stallion Spectacular Bid Stakes, clocking 1:21.85 for seven furlongs on turf on Sunday, June 26 to become the 48th black-type stakes winner sired by FREUD. The muscular bay with the characteristic Freud white forehead blaze broke from the inside post in the Spectacular Bid, which was for New York-conceived 3-year-olds, and appeared unperturbed when blocked in fifth and fourth place, as a five-time stakes winner set the early pace. Entering the stretch, he angled out and vied with the stakes-placed favorite on his outside toward a narrow opening before surging to overtake the new leader – a 2016 stakes winner of $246,630 – and “kicked clear” in the final stages of his stakes debut.

Cloud Control’s victory followed his win five weeks earlier in a $60,000 Belmont maiden special mile on turf. He was the only Spectacular Bid starter who had run in fewer than six previous races.

Winning jockey Angel Arroyo, who has been on board for all of Cloud Control’s starts, had nothing but compliments for his mount: “My horse broke great, and I put him towards the rail…he switched leads and took off easy (in the stretch). It’s only his third race, and he keeps getting better and better.”

The Spectacular Bid outcome was not unexpected for winning trainer John Kimmel: “I thought he would give a good effort,” Kimmel remarked. “I really didn’t know if I had a good handle on who his competition would be…I think he showed today that he’s got a lot of talent. I think (he could go further),” Kimmel continued. “He’s a big, strong horse. He was injured as a 2-year-old…to his hock, and it was nice to see a horse like that come back. He’s a big, stout horse with limited experience, and to see him move forward like he did today, I think he’ll have a nice future.”

Cloud Control is the second offspring and second winner but first stakes winner produced from a now 9-year-old New York homebred mare and three-time winner that the Bromans also bred. He is the fourth 2016 black-type stakes winner sired by Freud – two in North America and two in South America – following Argentine-breds BOOM BOOM SIENA and STREET LOLO in Peru (the latter in a Group 3 event on June 19) and Kentucky-bred Churchill Downs graded winner SHARP AZTECA ($226,250). All are 3-year-olds, although the two Argentine-breds – owned by the Dona Licha Stable of Oscar Pena – were conceived on a Southern Hemisphere breeding schedule and were foaled in late 2012. About ten minutes after Cloud Control’s latest victory, another potential Freud standout owned by Dona Licha Stable, 2-year-old Argentine-bred WORLD GURU, easily won his debut by four lengths from the outside post against 11 rivals going 1,400 meters (about seven furlongs) on San Isidro turf in Argentina.

WHY FREUD RANKS AS ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE SIRES EVER TO STAND IN NORTH AMERICA:

Posted on Categories Stallions

Through June 26, 2016, FREUD has sired 48 black-type stakes winners that have won 115 black-type events identified as “stakes” – including graded races on dirt, turf, synthetic. These 115 stakes wins have occurred at 23 tracks in four countries and one commonwealth in two hemispheres, ranging from 5½ furlongs to 1½ miles. By surface, 56 have been on dirt, 54 on turf, and 5 on synthetic. By age, 18 have been won by 2-year-olds, 45 by 3-year-olds, 12 by 4-year-olds, 25 by 5-year-olds, 4 by 6-year-olds, 8 by 7-year-olds, 3 by an 8-year-old. On NYRA’s 9 racing strips, 15 of these wins have been on Belmont dirt, 12 on Belmont outer turf, 11 on Belmont inner turf, 8 on Aqueduct outer dirt, 8 on Saratoga inner turf, 5 on Aqueduct inner dirt, 4 on Saratoga dirt, 3 on Saratoga outer turf, and 2 on Aqueduct turf.

Splendor on the Grass: Desert Party’s 6/22 Belmont & Delaware Turf Winners Show Speed & Stamina

Posted on Categories Stallions

dpnews2Finally getting a clean start in her third outing, Rita Riccelli’s RIO VISTA led gate-to-wire to break her maiden by a length and a half over six rivals in 1:08.55 for six furlongs on Belmont’s inner turf on Wednesday, June 22, becoming the 52nd known winner sired by DESERT PARTY. The 3-year-old filly ran her opening quarter-mile in 22.29 and followed that with back-to-back quarters in 23.13 each, finishing under a hand ride as fillies sired by stallions standing for $30,000, $50,000, and $200,000 came in second, third, and fourth, respectively. She was Desert Party’s 21st Northern Hemisphere winner in 2016, and her victory was the 26th on turf by an offspring of Desert Party, who also has sired the winners of 68 races on dirt and four on all-weather surfaces.

A couple of hours earlier that same day on Delaware Park turf, favored MOONLIGHT PARTY won for new owner Leonard C. Green by two lengths over nine rivals going about a mile and 70 yards, becoming Desert Party’s seventh Northern Hemisphere repeat winner of 2016. The 4-year-old has won his last two consecutive turf outings – both going two turns against nine rivals – having scored by a daylight margin on a wet (“good”) Monmouth grass course on May 14.

Among the top four New York-based turf sires of 2016, only Desert Party has fewer than 20 starters on grass for the year.

Freud’s Street Lolo Wins G3 Pedro Garcia Miro in Peru – Becomes His 47th Black-Type SW

Posted on Categories Stallions

streetloloDona Licha Stable’s STREET LOLO broke on top and led virtually throughout to a daylight-margin victory over nine rivals in the Group 3 Pedro Garcia Miro at Monterrico near Lima, Peru on Sunday, June 19, as the Argentine-bred 3-year-old became the 47th black-type stakes winner sired by FREUD. It was the speedy colt’s second turf win since being introduced to grass late in 2015, although he has scored by 12¾ lengths on dirt and placed second among 12 in the Group 1 Polla de Potrillos (Peruvian 2,000 Guineas) on dirt. Street Lolo also has placed third in a three-way photo finish in Monterrico’s Group 3 Baldomero Aspillaga on turf.

Street Lolo came out of the gate like a cannon shot in the 1,800-meter (about 1 1/8 miles) Pedro Garcia Miro and led most of the way despite being engaged intermittently by various rivals. He held a big lead exiting the second turn, and that margin proved more than sufficient to guarantee a decisive victory over a close four-way finish behind him that included the favored runner-up plus a Group 2 winner on Monterrico turf.

 (Click here to watch the race!)

Foaled at Haras La Leyenda in Argentina on November 2, 2012 and still a 3-year-old on the Southern Hemisphere breeding calendar, Street Lolo was one of the youngest starters (one of two November-foaled 3-year-olds) in the Pedro Garcia Miro, which was for 3-year-olds and up. He races under the same Dona Licha Stable (Oscar Pena) yellow and green silks that Freud’s champion son, ALEX ROSSI, carried to Group 1 victory on Monterrico dirt in 2014 and that Freud’s 3-year-old daughter, BOOM BOOM SIENA, carried to black-type victory on Monterrico turf in May. The latter became Freud’s 46th black-type stakes winner, preceded 15 days earlier by Freud’s 45th black-type stakes winner when 3-year-old SHARP AZTECA ($226,250) won Churchill Downs’ graded Pat Day Mile on dirt on Kentucky Derby Day.

Freud, whose Northern Hemisphere progeny earnings have topped $2-million for 2016 (for cumulative Northern Hemisphere progeny earnings of more than $40-million), also has Southern Hemisphere (South American) progeny earnings approaching $1-million for the current racing season.
