Mister Frisky retired to stud

October 19, 1991|By Los Angeles Times

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Mister Frisky, a $15,000 yearling who won his first 16 races before finishing eighth as the favorite in last year's Kentucky Derby, has been retired to stud after an unsuccessful comeback from a life-threatening infection.

Joe Garcia, who became Mister Frisky's trainer after Laz Barrera died in April, said Friday that the 4-year-old colt's stallion career will begin next year at Silverleaf Farm in Ocala, Fla.

Mister Frisky never won a race after his runaway victory in the 1990 Santa Anita Derby, which was his 16th straight triumph.
