I WAS FRAMED colt close second at Leicester

5 Sep 2012

 Our first homebred I Was Framed colt Gilded Frame has shown plenty of promise in his three starts to date as a 2 year old. The bay colt is out of unraced Pivotal mare Glint and was retained by Andbell Stud, having gone through the ring at Ascot last year.

 Gilded Frame is trained by Marcus Tregoning and was thrown straight in the deep end at his racing debut – in a strong 7f Class 2 maiden in Goodwood on 4th August. Despite an unlucky wide draw (15 out of 15) and running green he kept on nicely to finish 8th. Two weeks later he lined up for a maiden in Salisbury, though might have found the ground too soft for his liking. Therefore the Maiden Auction Stakes at Leicester on the 4th September seemed to reunite all the conditions for him to do well and the bay was sent off at odds of 11/4 as joint favourite.  The colt showed a similar level of form as he had on debut and made more of an impact. Gilded Frame was unable to peg back winner and was second by a neck, but both pulled clear of the rest, and he will be suited by further in time.
