Fourth Australian Winner for Frosted

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday March 2

Darley shuttler Frosted (USA) was making news at Inglis Premier this week when his filly from Miss Steele sold for $420,000 and he was back in the news again on Tuesday when siring his fourth Australian winner at Bendigo.

A hot favourite for the 1100m maiden, the Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt Frostin’ was fourth on debut in the Group III MRC Chairman’s Stakes behind Enthaar and was then second to subsequent stakes-winner Tycoon Humma at Bendigo.

He ran right up to that good form when cruising home to win by two lengths.

A $60,000 Inglis Premier purchase for Snowden Racing from the Riverina Downs draft, Frostin’ is a half-brother to Group II winner Viridine and stakes-placed St Edwards Crown being the fifth winner from five to race from Anabaa (USA) mare Patina.

Patina was originally a Godolphin mare, but was on-sold in 2016 at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale for $15,000 to Mario & Jenni Cesnik, who bred Frostin’.

He is the fourth Australian winner from just nine runners for Frosted joining stakes-winner Ingratiating and stakes-placed Frost Flowers and Cloudy.


By champion US sire Tapit, Frosted has a profile that would suggest his progeny will only improve with maturity and should also handle a trip.
