Franny Freud wins the G1 Prioress at Belmont Park on July 4, 2010

New York-bred Franny Freud, an Omnisurface Star heading into the Prioress Stakes at Belmont Park with restricted stakes wins over dirt and turf and a graded stakes win over Polytrack in the G2 Beaumont at Keeneland in April, scored her first career G1 victory on July 4 when she won the six-furlong Prioress as the 3-4 favorite by 1 3/4 lengths in a final time of 1:10.11. Congratulations to the “Won on all 3” filly and her connections!

2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird makes the first start of his 4-year-old campaign today in the Grade 2 Firecracker Handicap at Churchill Downs. This will be his first attempt at turf.

You may remember that Mine That Bird spent his 2-year-old campaign at Woodbine running on synthetics and won several stakes races including the Grade 3 Grey. His only win on dirt came over the slop, but can he also get a graded win on turf? We’ll see!

Update: Mine That Bird was off the board but Prioress winner Franny Freud is an Omnisurface Star! We’ll add her in a bit.
