Super Frolic at Churchill Downs in November.
The 6-year-old Super Frolic, an earner of $1.3 million in his career, will be returned to training, Millennium Farms announced Feb. 15.
Bob Miller, Millennium Farms manager, said the decision came after consultation with trainer Steve Asmussen, who saddled Super Frolic in his last two starts.
“Steve feels that his chances to return to his graded stakes-winning form are very good,” said Miller. “He is mapping out a campaign that includes the mid-Atlantic racing circuit for Super Frolic.”
“I’m excited to bring him back to the races,” commented Asmussen. “He was very sound for an older horse who had competed at the top level of our sport for five straight years.”
Millennium Farms controller Jay Ted Neel said that Super Frolic was attracting a solid book of mares for his first season at stud.
“He was going to get a good crop of foals, but we felt the numbers still wouldn’t give him his best chance to succeed as a sire,” said Neel. “We’re talking to several Mid-Atlantic stallion operations who are interested in standing him after this racing season.”
A son from the Danzig sire line (Pine Bluff
) who won his first three starts, Super Frolic has won or placed in 21 stakes.
