Frosted up-and-running with first Stakes winner

Ingratiating wins Listed Darley Maribyrnong Trial at Flemington in early Australian breakthrough

Ingratiating has given his sire Frosted the perfect start in Australia, becoming his first Stakes winner when taking out the country’s first juvenile Stakes race of the season, the Listed Darley Maribyrnong Trial at Flemington.

And in a sweep of the placings for the Darley stallions, Frosted also sired the third home, Cloudy with the runner-up General Beau being a son of Brazen Beau.

Frosted has produced six winners and a Group One third in America, while in Australia another Godolphin runner, The Globe, ran third to General Beau in the first juvenile race of the 2020/21 racing season in Australia on Wednesday, 23 September.

Under a gentle ride from Damien Oliver, who partnered with the winning colt in a Flemington jump-out and opted to stay with the Godolphin mount, Ingratiating was always in touch in the 1,000m straight race, getting the better of General Beau at the 200m and drawing clear to win by a length with Cloudy making good ground into third.

Ingratiating was bred by Godolphin Australia out of G2-winning mare Obsequious (Lonhro) who is expecting to foal to Frosted again this season.

Frosted is standing the current southern hemisphere breeding season at Northwood Park in Victoria at a fee of $22,000 including GST.
