Fruehling (Ire) sired his first winner when his first starter Erringhi Spring scored a front-running victory at Sunshine Coast on Sunday.
Erringhi Spring (2f Fruehling – Tafeer by Shamardal) started at $17 but contradicted that quote with a thoroughly professional debut in the Workplace Central Maiden (1000m). The Barry Lockwood-trained filly was tackled by Winter Passage (I Am Invincible) in the straight but fought back and was doing better on the line to score by three-quarters of a length.
Fruehling (Azamour) started his career with a couple of placings at Goodwood and Chester for Sir Michael Stoute before arriving in Melbourne where he was trained by Anthony Freedman. A first-up victory at Sandown was followed by further wins at Mornington, Werribee and Sunshine Coast.
Quinalow-based Blue Hills Thoroughbreds in Queensland has advertised Frueling’s service fee as “POA”. He is a half-brother to Glass Harmonium (G1 VRC Mackinnon Stakes) and Arab Spring (G3 Newbury John Porter Stakes).
