Frisco Star, an undefeated track-record-setting stakes winner, will enter stud in 2007 at Stonewall Farm Stallions near Versailles, Ky. The 3-year-old son of More Than Ready
will stand for $5,000.
In August of last year, Frisco Star ran one of the year's fastest Beyer Speed Figures for a juvenile, a 102, in winning by 8 1/2 lengths in track-record time of 1:01.65 for 5 1/2 furlongs at Santa Rosa in his sole start at that age. In his only two starts at three, both at six furlongs, he took the Novato Stakes in 1:08.66 at Golden Gate Fields and won in 1:09.61 at Bay Meadows.
Frisco Star retired with earnings of $54,725 for Harry Aleo, who last year's raced champion sprinter Lost in the Fog.
"If you want speed, this colt had it," said Ken Wilkins, Stonewall's director of stallion operations. "To win his first out by 8 1/2, and do it in :21 2/5, :44 1/5, :55 2/5, and 1:01 3/5, that's racehorse time. He is a big, good-looking colt and we're proud to stand the first son of More Than Ready in Kentucky."
Bred in Florida by Charles Russell Patton, Frisco Star commanded $175,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company April sale of 2-year-olds in training. His dam, No Mud On Me (by Great Above), is a half-sister to two stakes winners.
