Franny Freud Romps in New York Stallion

Franny Freud, the lone filly entered in today’s New York Stallion Stakes for 3-year-olds at Belmont Park, lived up to expectations as the odds-on favorite, setting all the fractions and widening the margin in the stretch to score an impressive victory.

 

It was the third straight triumph and first on the turf for Franny Freud, who entered this spot off victories over fellow 3-year-old fillies in the Grade 2 Beaumont on Polytrack at Keeneland and the NYSS Park Avenue on the dirt here at Belmont.

 

Sent off as the 1-4 choice, Franny Freud wasted no time getting to the front, dictating the pace through a quarter of 23.37 and a half of 46.00. Despite being kept under wraps in the stretch by jockey Garrett Gomez, she opened up to score by six lengths over long shot Leatherhead. The final time for seven furlongs over the Widener turf was 1:21.47.

 

“The level of competition is a little different than when she ran at Keeneland, but to me she’s getting stronger with each race,” said Gomez. “She gets more and more mature and understands what I’m asking her to do.”

 

Make Note edged Belongs to Sheila to complete the trifecta, with Hittin the Note and Game Token completing the order of finish. Eire’s Run, In Te Domine, Seattle Mission, and Strategic Missile were scratched.

 

John Terranova who trains Franny Freud for Paul P. Pompa, Jr., Stephen Yarbrough and Winter Park Partners had the July 4, Grade 1 Prioress on the main track at Belmont as a long-range goal for Franny Freud, and those plans remain unchanged after today’s race.

 

“You never know with the heat – we had a little bit of a hot day – but we have a nice break ahead,” said Terranova. “We have almost six weeks going into the Prioress. She’s in top form and is super fit, and she seemed to enjoy herself today.”

 

Bred in New York by Anthony Grey, Franny Freud is now 7-2-0 from 10 starts and has earned $536,029. She returned $2.50 for a $2 win wager.
