Friesan Fire's first foal arrives in West Virginia
Grade 2 winner Friesan Fire was represented by his first foal Jan. 22, a filly born at Maple Valley Farm in Shenandoah Junction, W.Va.
The chestnut filly is out of the winning Louis Quatorze mare Helen Louise. Out of multiple Grade 3 winner Silent Turn, Helen Louise is a half-sister to stakes-placed Quiet Assurance and to Silent Academy, dam of multiple graded stakes winner Sweet August Moon. It is the family of Recital P.R., a champion in Puerto Rico.
Friesan Fire, a 7-year-old A.P. Indy ridgling, established himself as the Kentucky Derby favorite for 2009 by winning the Grade 3 LeComte Stakes, Grade 3 Risen Star Stakes and Grade 2 Louisiana Derby. Although unplaced in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, he trained on at four to win the Louisiana Handicap.
He retired with five wins from 18 career starts for earnings of $679,356.
Friesan Fire, who is out of the Dehere mare Bollinger, stands at Merryland Farm in Hydes, Md., for a fee of $4,000.
