Darley stallion Frosted (USA) took another step closer to claiming the leading first season for number of winners sire when his daughter Translation thumped her opponents by upwards of three and a half lengths over 1000m at Cranbourne on Friday.

Ridden by Jamie Kah for trainer James Cummings, Translation led at every call to defeat the Brazen Beau filly Identical who was one and a quarter lengths clear of third-placed Cable Bay (IRE) filly Fore.

It was the third start for Translation, who made her career debut when second at Sandown in December before finishing fifth over 1000m at Flemington on New Year’s Day.

Kah said she had a high opinion of the filly.

I’ve liked her since I had a sit in a trial. Although she did not do much, I thought she had a lot left,’ Kah told Racing.com.

“She is very speedy. All the Frosted’s I have ridden have been speedy.

“She has a bright future; she still does a few things wrong. She wants to get her head up a bit, but she could not do more than she did tonight.”

Translation is the third winner from four to race out of the stakes-winning Lonhro mare Quidnunc.

The winner of five and placed in eight of her 30 starts with earnings of over $305,000, Quidnunc was sold at the Inglis 2020 July (Early) Online Sale for $12,000 when carrying a filly by Hallowed Crown and visited the Twin Hills Stud stallion again last year.

Ahead of a big day with his son Intriguing a genuine chance in the $3,500,000 Golden Slipper, Frosted (USA) takes his winner’s tally to five, joining Flying Artie and Sooboog and one behind the front-runner Capitalist.
