Millionaire Super Frolic was euthanized after suffering an injury in the Sept. 15 Presque Isle Mile Stakes. The 7-year-old horse was pulled up during the race. It was his third start of the year and the 43rd of his career.
Owned by Ro Parra's Millennium Farms, Super Frolic was scheduled to enter stud in 2007 at Millennium near Lexington, but instead it was decided to return him to training. He was stakes-placed in his two previous starts this year.
Super Frolic, who was bought by Parra the summer of 2005, was at his best that fall while trained by Vladimir Cerin. He won the Hawthorne Gold Cup (gr. II), and then ran fourth in the Breeders' Cup Classic - Powered by Dodge (gr. I) behind Saint Liam, Flower Alley, and Perfect Drift.
Bred in Kentucky by Cherokee Farms, Super Frolic raced most of his career for Stride Rite Racing Stable. He won a career total of 11 races, six of which were stakes, and placed in a dozen added-money events. He was trained at the end of his career by Steve Asmussen.
A son of Pine Bluff, Super Frolic was one of six stakes winners or stakes-placed runners produced from the graded stakes-winning Mt. Livermore mare Lindsay Frolic.
Parra had planned to retire Super Frolic for the 2008 breeding season and had received offers from Maryland and Pennsylvania breeders.
