Notes: Kiaran McLaughlin nearly won the Kentucky Derby in 2055 when Closing Argument took command in the stretch only to be passed by the late-runni ng Giacomo, and the conditione r has been trying to get to the elusive winner s circle under the Twin Spires ever since. He may have his best chance in 2015 with Frosted, a son of red-hot sire Tapit and the Deputy Minister mare Fast Cookie. Campaigned by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum s Godolphin Racing LLC, Frosted was highly-reg arded in the barn before finishing a distant runner-up to subsequent Kip Deville S. champ Bayerd in a 6F Saratoga maiden race on August 23. The colt improved in his next outing, a 6 F Belmont Park contest for non-winner s four weeks later, when he again settled for second but was beaten less than a length. His breakthrou gh effort came when Frosted finally stretched out to a mile and romped by 5 lengths on October 30 at Aqueduct. With Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard for the first time, the colt hit the wire in 1 36.19 and was given a career-bes t 94 BRIS Speed Rating. Bred by in Kentucky by Darley, Sheikh Mohammed s global thoroughbr ed breeding operation, the aptly-name d gray/roan was foaled on April 18, 2012. Frosted has banked 70,600 in his three starts, and McLaughlin said he may try to increase that total and earn Derby qualifying points in the prestigiou s 400,000 G2 Remsen S. on November 29 at Aqueduct.
