"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.
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.
