Trotter Flicka Frost, dam of Hambletonian Stake winners Timothy T. and Christopher T. (both by Triple Crown winner and Hall of Fame Immortal Ayres) and Hambletonian Filly Stakes winner Cora T. (by Immortal Star's Pride), was bred by Frost Hill Farms of Edinburgh, Indiana. A foal of 1954, she was by Hall of Fame Immortal Victory Song out of Flicka Hanover, and owned by John L. Thro and Immortal Don R. Millar. Flicka Frost raced from 1956-1958, compiling a record of 76-12-4-5 while earning $30,163.

Driven by Immortal Billy Haughton as a two-year-old in 1956, Flicka Frost took a record of T2:02 - only six two-year-olds had ever trotted faster. As a three-year-old, Haughton drove Flicka Frost in a division of the Hambletonian. She finished on the board in 11 of 29 starts that year and earned $8,779. Her four-year-old season saw only two victories out of 28 starts, but she brought home $18,308.

As a broodmare, Flicka Frost produced 16 foals, with 15 born in consecutive years. The most successful of her offspring was 1970 Hambletonian winner and Three-Year-Old Trotter of the Year Timothy T. 3,1:58.4 ($896,968) who would also become a European champion, winning the 1974 and 1975 Elitlopp in Sweden. Flicka Frost also produced 1974 Hambletonian winner Christopher T. 3,1:58.3 ($162,503) and Cora T. 3,1:58 ($61,550), who defeated Immortal Rosemary in the 1978 Hambletonian Filly Stakes while equaling the world record 3-heats-divided mark of 5:58.2 set twenty years earlier by Immortal Emily's Pride in the 1958 Kentucky Futurity.

Flicka Frost also produced Smolder (Hickory Smoke) 4,2:03.3f ($34,617), a successful Ohio sire, Flicking Star (Star?s Pride) 3,2:05.2f ($12,659) and 1972 Hambletonian Filly Stakes contestant Gretchen Ann (Ayres) 2,T2:02.4 ($11,269).
