Frost Giant capped a brilliant season with his initial crop of runners by establishing a record in progeny earnings for New York-based freshman sires.
A 9 1/2-length win by his daughter Kelli Got Frosty in the East View Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack Dec. 9 (VIDEO) increased Frost Giant's progeny earnings to $752,543. The previous freshman sire record holder in New York was Precise End with $709,293 in 2004.
A grade I winner by Giant's Causeway , and from the prolific female family of Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Super Saver and grade I winners Bluegrass Cat and Girolamo , Frost Giant has sired nine winners, two stakes winners, and two stakes-placed winners from 14 runners.
"We're pleasantly surprised at how well Frost Giant's first offspring are doing as 2-year-olds because they are big horses who we expect will get better as they mature and go longer distances," said Andrew Cohen, who manages the stallion under the banner of his Sunset Stables.
