Part of Vintage 2016. This magnificent colt is by a leading New York sire and a well-bred mare.
This horse was individually selected for Hibiscus Stables by legendary horseman Greg Gilchrist. Greg says, "I was immediately attracted to this horse from the moment they led him from his stall. He has the perfect balance that I always require in a horse, and he's got a very solid frame. Additionally, he has a nice, big walk. He really steps over. He's just a magnificent looking colt. And, of course, he's by Freud who's a time-proven sire of runners. It's very few and far between that you see a Freud that can't run. Finally, he's a June foal, which means that he's only going to improve from here. Considering how impressive he looks now I truly look forward to seeing him when he's done growing. He projects to be a fine physical specimen."
This colt has an "A+" nick. He's inbred 4x4 to Northern Dancer, 5x5 to Nearctic, and 5x5 to Natalma. Historically, for this mating, Freud bred to mares by Northern Dancer, his sons, and grandsons, have produced numerous stakes winners including G1-winning Giant Ryan, G3-winning Hessonite, G3-winning Mr. Vegas, Meriwether Jessica, and Shakeira.
At stud Freud was the #2 Sire in New York in 2015. Beginning in 2007, Freud was ranked #1, #2, or #3 each year on New York Leading Sire list. Freud has sired 44 stakes winners and 2 champions. Freud sired G3-winning Lubash ($1,010,599) among many other graded stakes winners. Statistically, Freud has an Average Earnings Index of 1.70 and a Comp Index of 1.28. This means that offspring of Freud earn 1.70 times that of all runners and 1.28 times the offspring of other stallions bred to the same mares. On the racetrack Freud ran 3rd in the Cork and Orrery Stakes (Eng-G2).
Freud's sire is the legendary stallion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) runner-up Storm Cat. Storm Cat has sired leading stallion and multiple European Champion Giant's Causeway, Champion 2-Year-Old and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Filly (G1) winner Storm Flag Flying, European Champion 2-Year-Old Hold That Tiger, European Champion 2-Year-Old Aljabr, European Champion and highweight One Cool Cat, multiple G1 winner and highweight Black Minnaloushe, G1 winner and highweight Denebola, G1 winner and highweight Mistle Cat, and Canadian Champion Turf Female Ambitious Cat among many others.
