Frosted, a Darley homebred, won 6 of 19 starts for earnings of $3,972,800. He won the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap, Whitney Stakes, and Wood Memorial, as well as the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby, and his six graded placings include a runner-up effort to Triple Crown winner American Pharoah in the 2015 Belmont Stakes. In the U.A.E., Frosted won the Group 2 Al Maktoum Challenge Round 2.

Frosted is out of the Grade 2-winning Deputy Minister mare Fast Cookie, who is the dam of four winners from five runners. He is from the extended family of champion Midshipman and Grade 2/Group 2 winners Fleet Lady and Running Tall.

Fellow residents of Darley’s Kentucky base who shuttle to Australia for the Southern Hemisphere season include Animal Kingdom, Medaglia d’Oro and Street Boss. The late Street Cry was a frequent shipper for the Darley operation, and was Australia’s leading sire of 2016, led by Horse of the Year Winx.
