Frazil Steps Up in Fall Highweight

Trainer Linda Rice
The hard-knocking 5-year-old gelding Frazil, who is 7-3-1 from 12 starts in 2011, could make his stakes debut in the Fall Highweight for owner/trainer Linda Rice.

"We thought we might try a little something more ambitious with him," said Rice of Frazil, who enters the six-furlong sprint off a pair of victories at the distance. "It will be a tough group."

A son of The Cliff's Edge, Frazil is 5-3-1 from 11 starts at the Big A, and earned a lifetime best 106 Beyer with a front-running seven-length victory over the main track on April 7. That day, Frazil covered the 6 ½ furlongs in 1:15.72; he also has been victorious at six furlongs and one mile and 70 yards at Aqueduct.

"We've had to run him short and long," said Rice. "It appears he might be better sprinting than going long. We've had various opinions from people on that. I've had gamblers tell me, 'You should run him 1 1/8 miles, they'll never catch him.' He's a fun horse to have in the barn, certainly."
