NEWS BITES - PRIVATE COMPANIES

The first reported foal by Frosted, a filly, was born on January 15th at Audley Farm in Berryville, Virginia. Bred by Audley, she is out of the multiple G3 winner and G1-placed Snow Top Mountain.

Snow Top Mountain won or placed in 10 Stakes, including victories in the G3 Suwanee River Stakes and G3 All Along Stakes, and a second in the G1 Garden City Stakes. She is a half-sister to G2 winner/G1-placed Diversy Harbor, and five-time Graded winner Keertana (dam of G3 winner Ticonderoga). Snow Top Mountain is also the dam of G3 winner Greyvitos.

Darley America nominations sales manager Darren Fox commented, "We are eagerly awaiting Frosted's first foals. With his physical, sire power, race record and female family, he scores top marks how you assess a stallion prospect. He was booked full with the best book of mares bred by any freshman in 2017 and is close to full again for 2018."

Frosted, who raced in the royal blue silks of Godolphin, won the G1 Metropolitan Handicap, the G1 Whitney Stakes, and the G1 Wood Memorial Stakes, with additional placings in the G1 Belmont Stakes, the G1 Travers Stakes, and the G1 Woodward Stakes. His win in the Metropolitan was one for the ages as he notched a 123 Beyer, the highest such figure over the past decade, and fastest-ever at a mile, while breaking the Stakes record in a fourteen and one-quarter-length romp.

Frosted is out of the G2-winning Deputy Minister mare, Fast Cookie, also the dam of 2017 G3 winner Indulgent (by Bernardini).

September 30: Darley Australia Pty Ltd: Teofilo adds another Australian Stakes winner

The flow of Australasian stakes winners for Teofilo continued when Ataraxia stepped up to Listed company to record a tenacious win in the Dulcify Quality at Randwick on 30 September.

The win was the third at stakes level in the southern hemisphere in as many weeks for Teofilo whose NZ-bred son Humidor won the G1 Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington on 16 September and an Irish-bred son Chance to Dance scored in Listed company in New Zealand eight days later.

Bred and raced by Godolphin, Ataraxia is out of the Quest For Fame mare Insouciance whose nine foals to race have all won.

The winner of a maiden only two starts earlier, Ataraxia made the most of a perfect ride to score by a neck from Dissolution, the victory opening the door to some intriguing spring stakes possibilities.

Ataraxia was one of the best to begin and took up a position behind the leader where he remained until 300m from the finish when he moved into a challenging position.

In the final surge to the line he resisted all challenges and was holding the runner-up.

Ataraxia is a half-brother to the G1 Spring Champion Stakes winner Complacent (Authorized) who now stands under the Darley banner at Mapperly Stud in New Zealand.

His maternal family also includes the Australian G1 winners Dracula, Festal and Masked Party.

Teofilo stands at Kelvinside, NSW, at a service fee of A$44,000 including GST.

Settled in third position early on, Ger Lyons' charge came wide around the bend but despite showing some signs of greenness under pressure, soon moved clear of his rivals to win going away by four and a half lengths.

Mcmunigal was bred by Michael O'Mahony and is the first winner out of Picture Of Lily (Medician). The mare is a half-sister to two Black Type winners in Scott's View and Mac Melody.

The Stefano Botti-trained colt took the seven-and-a-half-furlong contest by three-quarters of a length, justifying his odds-on favouritism in the race.

Biz Honor was bred by Massimo Parri and is out of the Stakes-winning Tobougg mare Biz Bar, who has produced no fewer than four Black Type winners to date, including G1 Gran Premio di Milano hero Biz the Nurse.

Dawn Approach now has eight winners to his name and four Black Type performers, headed by G2 Debutante Stakes third Mary Tudor and G3-placed duo Fast Approach and Dawn Delivers.

Teofilo enjoyed a superb weekend, with Ajman Princess landing the G1 Darley Prix Jean Romanet and Massaat taking the G2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury. He added a third Stakes winner in less than a week yesterday when Fleur Forsyte prevailed in the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Galtres Stakes at York and on 25 August, Mildenberger became his sire's fourth Black type winner of the week with victory in the Stonehenge Stakes at Salisbury.

Mildenberger was settled in second under Franny Norton and despite losing touch two furlongs from home, rallied superbly inside the final furlong to win by a nose.

July 31: Darley Australia Pty Ltd: Impressive G3 winner for Teofilo

Teofilo sired a new Group winner on Sunday 30 July when his two-year-old daughter Tantheem impressed in the G3 Prix de Cabourg. Run over six furlongs at Deauville, she was sharply away form the stalls and never seeing another rival, ran right to the line for a three-and-a-half length victory. She has now won two of her three starts, coming into this race off similarly wide-margin victory on Deauville's synthetic track.

Owned and bred by Hamdan Al Maktoum, Tantheem is a daughter of the Dubawi mare Riqa, who was placed three times at Stakes level in France. Her dam is a half-sister to the dual G1-winning miler Tamayuz and from the extended family of the great Urban Sea.

Teofilo has now sired 23 Stakes horses this season including impressive Australian G1 winner Humidor and dual G2 hero Permian, who went so close last time out in the G1 Grand Prix de Paris.

Unforgetable Filly has shown plenty of promise so far this year and the three-year-old daughter of Sepoy gained a well-deserved first Black type win on 3 June, taking the seven-furlong Listed Maggie Dickson Stakes at Musselburgh.

Hugo Palmer's charge was settled in mid division under Josephine Gordon, before being switched wide as she approached the two-furlong marker. Unforgetable Filly then quickened impressively to take the lead a furlong out and kept to her task superbly to win by a length and three quarters.

Unforgetable Filly broke her maiden by no fewer than seven lengths last September, before finishing third in the G3 Oh So Sharp Stakes on her final start as a juvenile. She reappeared with a second in the G3 Nell Gwyn Stakes, earning herself a run in the 1,000 Guineas where she finished a creditable sixth.

It was the third straight victory for the three-year-old son of Street Boss, who improved his record to three wins in six lifetime starts.

Settled just off the pace in third, Big Handsome made his move on the far turn, racing up to the leaders while sweeping three-wide. The dark bay colt hit the front at the top of the stretch and never looked back as he drew off for the sharp-looking victory.

Chookie Dunedin was bred by D and J Raeburn and is out of the multiple winner Lady Of Windsor, now dam of no fewer than seven successful runners including Black type winner Chookie Royale. They are from the family of Lowther Stakes heroine Miss. Demure.
