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 107 Stakes races - 54 on dirt, 48 on turf, and 5 on synthetic surfaces. 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 millionaire Lubash.

On May 31, 2014 Freud hit the trifecta in the Mt. Vernon Stakes. The first three finishers being sired by him.

Mah Jong Maddnes
Effie Trinket
Lady's Lunar Luck

Then on August 13, 2015, Statue of Liberty Stakes was run at Saratoga. The horses finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th were all daughters of Freud. A Freudian superfecta. 

The Mt. Vernon Stakes in 2015 was won by Bloodlines Racing Partnerships' own Invading Humor, with Freud's Mah Jong Maddnes finishing second. On the same day, the Kingston Stakes was won by Freud's millionaire Lubash.

 

One of the most important measurements used to determine the success of a stallion is comparing his Average Earnings 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 July, 2015, Freud has a AEI of 1.66 and a CI of 1.28. This is a 30% higher AEI than the CI, an almost unheard of improvement of a book of mares.

Here is a table comparing the top ten Stallions of 2014 based on money earned by their offspring:

Stallion AEI CI %Improvement
Tapit 2.33 2.03 +15%
Giant's Causeway 1.85 2.58 -28%
Kitten's Joy 1.82 1.54 +18%
City Zip 1.72 1.46 +18%
Candy Ride 1.91 1.74 +10%
Medaglia d'Oro 2.08 2.32 -10%
Lemon Drop Kid 1.78 1.91 -7%
Speightstown 2.13 2.08 +2%
Hard Spun 1.54 1.91 -19%
Curlin 2.04 2.33 -12%

As you can see by the above numbers, many of the leading sires actually have an AEI lower than the CI of the mares they were bred to.

107 Stakes victories by Freud's colts and filles is not due to the strength of the mares he was bred to but by 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.
