One of the more interesting maidens expected to surface at
Saratoga Race Course this summer is a son of Freud out of the mare
Struckbylightning, named, appropriately enough, Fried (as in fried egg).
“His owner [Robert Jacoff] originally wanted to name him
Nutz, but that was rejected, and he came up with Fried,” said trainer Richard
Schosberg. “It’s a pretty clever name.”
Ironically, one of Schosberg’s main owners is Albert Fried,
who campaigns, among others, Giant Moon.
“Some people thought he was named after Mr. Fried, but
that’s not the case,” said the trainer.
