FREUD

 Sire  Storm Cat
 Dam  Mariah's Storm by Rahy

 

Freud is one of the leading and most versatile sires in the U.S. His offspring have won over 110 Stakes races, approximately half on the dirt and half on the turf. Not only do Freud's runners win Stakes races on any surface, but they have won them from distances of 5 1/2 furlongs to 1 1/2 miles. Among Freud's Stakes winners are Grade 1 winners Giant Ryan and Fanny Freud and $1.5 million earner Lubash. Current stars of 2017 are Sharp Azteca and Fourstar Crook. Sharp Azteca has won 6 of 13 races and $956,740. His last three Beyer numbers were 106, 106, and 110. The 110 Beyer was on July 30 in the Gulfstream Park H. which he won by 7 1/2 lengths. Fourstar Crook has won 8 races in a row, including 4 consecutive Stakes races, with the last being the $200,000 Graded James Penny Memorial Stakes, winning by 2 1/4 lengths. As the Racing Form comments said, "fanned very wide into the stretch but surged clear through the final furlong." On more than one occasion Freud has been the sire of the top 3 finishers in Stakes races including the first 4 in the 2015 Statue of Liberty Stakes. A Freud superfecta.

One of the most important measurements used to determine the success of a stallion is comparing his Average Earning Index (AEI) to the Comparable Index (CI) of the mares he is bred to. A stallion having a higher AEI than the mares he is bred to means the stallion's offspring are outperforming the expectations of the book of mares he was bred to. The higher the AEI relative to the CI the better. As of August, 2017, Freud has a lifetime AEI of 1.56 and a CI of 1.26. This is a 27% higher AEI than the CI, one of the highest improvements of all U.S. stallions.

Here is a table comparing AEI to CI of the top ten (living) Stallions in August, 2017 based on money earned by their offspring:

As you can see two of the top ten stallions have an AEI lower than their mares' CI. Only one stallion, Into Mischief, improves his mares' CI more than Freud does, and Freud more than doubles the improvement of any other stallion.

The more than 110 Stakes victories by Freud's colts and fillies are not due to the strength of the mares he was bred to but due to the strength of the genes Freud passes on to his offspring.

Bloodlines Racing Partnerships is happy to have the genetic profile and proven success of Freud in our program.
