Barn Notes: Friesan Fire - Now That's a Horse of Different Colors

Media handling option: 

Back on Dec. 18, in a first-level allowance at Fair Grounds, Vinery Stable LLC and Fox Hill Farms Inc.'s Friesan Fire - wearing emerald green silks with a white yoke - made or forced the pace most of the way before finishing second. Three weeks later, in the Grade III Lecomte Stakes here on Jan. 10, Friesan Fire took command in mid-stretch and drew clear for a clear-cut 1 1/2-length victory while jockey Gabriel Saez sported silks with red and white quarters.
