Located at the Finger Lakes Race Track for a few more days, then will be at her trainer’s farm near the track.
We have visited with this super sweet daughter of Frost Giant every time we went into her trainer’s barn, because Frosty is just the friendliest filly, who begs to be petted and plied with peppermints, and we were always happy to comply. Her groom says “she is the sweetest thing in the entire world!” The groom also reports that Frosty is “sound as a dollar bill,” and we observed good clean legs. Frosty is very pretty, a striking dark liver chestnut, with well proportioned balanced conformation and a strong shoulder and deep girth. She has had 28 starts, with two wins and several seconds. But she has recently developed a tendency to break slowly out of the starting gate, and this is compromising her racing performance, so her owner has decided it is a good time to let her move on to a new career. On the day we photographed Frosty, she had just had her shoes pulled for the winter, but she still showed beautiful movement jogging barefoot on hard pavement. She displayed a light balanced trot with suspension — she is a good enough mover for the show hunter ring, and we also think that dressage and eventing will be ideal outlets for her. In the past few years we have placed two of her full siblings, and both are now succeeding in eventing careers. She is Frost Giant, a very popular sport horse sire who is a son of Giant’s Causeway out of a Gone West mare. Her dam is by Seeking the Gold, and has produced a multiple stakes placed runner. Frosty on the Case is inbred 5×4 to the great racemare and broodmare Numbered Account, which should appeal to breeders. She also traces tail female to foundation mare and champion Bayou, a family rich in stakes winners and producers.
