I don't know how many mares Juddmonte eventually had covered by Frankel, but they were planning on 20 - 30 early on in the season.

So their income may only have been around the 13,000,000 million squid, rather than 16,500,000 from the stallion's first season.

And for good measure, he served a few mares to SH time @ 110,000 squid a throw.

First foal for arc winner danedream
Photo: Courtesy Newsells Park Stud
Danedream and her Frankel filly.


Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (Fr-I) winner Danedream gave birth to a bay filly by Frankel just before midnight Monday, Jan. 27. The filly was foaled at Newsells Park Stud in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, where the mare is boarded.  

"Following a very straightforward foaling, Danedream is proving to be the perfect mother to her first foal, a pretty filly by world champion Frankel," Julian Dollar, Newsells Park Stud general manager said in a release. "She will be covered again by Frankel this season."
 
A daughter of Lomitas out of the Danehill mare Danedrop, Danedream was bred in Germany. She won four other group I races including the Betfair King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes

Frankel in his box

Frankel: has 108 reported first-crop foals - 57 colts and 51 fillies

 PICTU Edward Whitaker (racingpost.com/photos)

Frankel's first foals continue to hit headlines

AS THE media furore surrounding the sale of the first Frankel foal at the Goffs London Sale on Monday proved, interest in the unbeaten dual world champion shows no signs of waning.

That colt out of Crystal Gaze is one of 108 first-crop foals by Frankel whose birth has been recorded by Juddmonte.
Frankel's first crop comprises 57 colts and 51 fillies.

For the first time, you can see a full list of Frankel's foals born this year - including gender, colour and date of birth - by clicking on the pdf link on the left.

The list, provided by Juddmonte, is not quite complete, as one or two mares sold abroad have not had foals reported.

Frankel’s first foal

The first foal by Frankel to be offered at auction drew large crowds at the inaugural Goffs London Sale

Frankel foal in limelight at Goffs London Sale

THE Goffs London Sale was promised to be a spectacle when announced last year, and it didn't disappoint as the highly-anticipated first foal by Frankel to go under the hammer - offered alongside his dam Crystal Gaze - was sold for £1,150,000 to Coolmore's MV Magnier.

The inaugural sale was unveiled in August last year, but not until last week did Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby reveal his pair of aces, news that reached all four corners of the globe and brought bloodstock to the betting market. Early yesterday morning news of the upcoming sale was still taking priority on Australian and US websites, while punters were still able to take advantage of markets opened by Betfair and Paddy Power on the figure fetched by Lot 65.

And although the pair's price may have been eclipsed by today's Coventry hope Cappella Sansevero, there was no doubting it was Frankel's mini-me who the hundreds in attendance were there to see. Early parades during pre-sale afternoon tea led to abandoned drinks and a flurry of photos, while the sale itself - held in a rapidly erected salesring constructed from velvet ropes befitting such equine celebrities - was also cause for a ten-deep crowd. 

While few in attendance were likely to be bidding for Crystal Gaze - who is back in foal to Frankel - and her precious produce, the crowd that was a who's who of racing and bloodstock also contained cameramen and presenters from numerous TV stations including Sky and ATR.

Speaking after the seven-figure sale, Qatar Racing manager David Redvers said: "I'm sad to say goodbye. He's a smashing foal and she's a lovely mare."

Commenting on the event, which was run in association with Qipco, owned by Qatar Racing's Al Thani family, Redvers added: "But look what it's doing for the industry. I hope to see plenty of positive reports in the press tomorrow. It deserves to do well and I'm thrilled to be a part of it, as is Sheikh Fahad."

Crystal Gaze and her foal returned to Tweenhills after a short photocall in the picturesque grounds of The Orangery, unaware of the media furore they had created.

by Frank Mitchell | December 2, 2014 10:53 am

After three seasons of racing at the highest level with nary a loss, Frankel was celebrated as one of the greatest racehorses by the end of his career, and many noteworthy judges of form and class rated him the best racehorse ever.

As a result of Frankel’s exceptional ability and heralded athleticism, there has not been a comparable level of anticipation about a young sire’s produce since the first foals and yearlings by Secretariat came to the sales in 1975 and ’76.

So, since Frankel’s retirement to stud and first covering season in 2013, one of the great sources of comment and interest in the world of breeding has been what the Frankel foals look like and what those looks might foretell about the prospects of the great racehorse as a sire.

Frankel’s acclaim was so broad that the general press, in addition to the sporting publications, devoted space to coverage of the famous horse’s first foals and also to the first of his offspring to go to the sales.

From seven through the ring at Goffs and Tattersalls, only three changed hands. One of those was a very impressive filly out of the top racer Finsceal Beo (by Mr. Greeley), and she brought a top-foal price of 1.8 million euros at Goffs.

In addition, another filly at Goffs brought 480,000 euros, and one at Tattersalls was sold for 150,000 guineas.

Those were not the results breeders and vendors were hoping for, and by anyone’s estimation, the expectations for the first foals by Frankel were sky high.

That is probably the issue with those youngsters who were bought back at Tattersalls on Friday, which the sales company had promoted as “Frankel Friday.” That promotional campaign blew up in confetti after one colt was scratched for a “minor knock” and two others were bought back for 350,000 and 200,000 guineas.

Those were good prices, but they weren’t good enough to buy a Frankel.

Even allowing that a further Frankel foal sold in Japan back in July for about $950,000, the market is sending mixed signals about the first foals by the great racehorse. Some are clearly worth nearly any price, but others seem to be “just a horse,” in the estimation of buyers presently.

In sum, I suspect that the statistics and sales results mean a whole lot less than they appear to.

The expectations for Frankel, just like those for Secretariat, are so high that the horse’s accomplishments as a stallion nearly have to fall below them. As the best horse in Europe since at least Sea-Bird or Ribot, Frankel has virtually no chance to sire a racer of his own extraordinary ability. The odds of doing that are only the slimmest. What chance is there then that he could sire horses better than himself?

None.

Do not take this as an episode of Frankel-bashing. It is nothing of the kind. Instead, it is a whiff of sincere practicality.

If Frankel is a great stallion, he might sire 20 percent stakes winners, and that would make him a very great stallion, indeed. So from 125 foals, he would have 25 stakes winners. That would leave 100 non-stakes winners. If we were to be very liberal, maybe 40 or so of those would be pretty good sorts, able to win a race or three, show flashes of good form, maybe place in a stakes or something.

And that would leave another 50 or so who would be, in frank language, “duds.”

That’s the arbitrary and unsentimental nature of genetics. The primary law of genetic transmission is regression to the mean, and that applies to all horses, even the best of the best.

Such is the reason that truly outstanding sires like Northern Dancer, Bold Ruler, Sadler’s Wells, Mr. Prospector, and Galileo are so exceptional. They defy the probabilities by getting a higher proportion of high-class stock, not by siring only high-class stock.

And where did every one of those sires prove his merit? Not in the sales ring, at least not initially, but on the racetrack. That is where the undefined possibilities of genetic transmission meet the unbending assessments of athletic competition.

In a couple more years, we will begin to have some ideas about what Frankel’s stock can do when they pop out of the gate, and the racecourses of the world spread out in front of them.

Frank Mitchell is author of Racehorse Breeding Theories, as well as the book Great Breeders and Their Methods: The Hancocks. In addition to writing the column “Sires and Dams” in Daily Racing Form for nearly 15 years, he has contributed articles to Thoroughbred Daily News, Thoroughbred Times, Thoroughbred Record, International Thoroughbred, and other major publications. In addition, Frank is chief of biomechanics for DataTrack International and is a hands-on caretaker of his own broodmares and foals in central Kentucky.

Cunco--360

Cunco: first son of Frankel to make the racetrack won well on debut

 PICTU Edward Whitaker (racingpost.com/photos)

Chesham the plan for Frankel son Cunco

THE success of Cunco, Frankel's first runner as a stallion at Newbury last Friday, has been hailed as great for racing by many of those involved with the 14-time unbeaten champion.

The first of Frankel's offspring to be born in 2014, Cunco's promising victory in a 6f maiden under Robert Havlin received massive media attention - there was an ITV camera crew at the track and the win featured on many newspaper back pages the following day.

The John Gosden-trained colt is being aimed at the Listed Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot next month, a meeting at which his sire won twice.

Mike Marshall, assistant to the late Sir Henry Cecil during the Frankel years and now understudy to Ismail Mohammed, said: "It was a massive win for Frankel and for racing on Friday; it was a real good news story all round.

"Cunco half-reminded me of the old boy in his cross-noseband travelling strongly up the straight, and also by how he finished out the race.

"It took an age for him to pull up, just as Frankel did when he won there twice. It was a win that transcended the racing pages and that has to be good for everyone in the sport."

'He always took three or four furlongs to pull up'

Frankel's former lad Sandeep Gauravaram admitted to "having a few quid" on Cunco, who was sent off at 7-2.

He said: "Friday's win was great for racing. I was chuffed the way Cunco quickened and then he went right around the bend, but that's the Frankel influence for you as he always took three or four furlongs to pull up.

"I backed the horse as there had been some positive reports about him. I only ever backed Frankel once, which was when he won his maiden. I better quit now as I'm a bad gambler!"

Gosden said: "Cunco had 20 lenses pointing in his direction and that was just in the saddling boxes, so you could say there was some interest. It's a great story and great for racing that he won.

"All being well, and depending on how he comes out of the race, we'll look at the Chesham. It seems the obvious race."

Frankel offspring have life and spark, says Palmer

28 Apr 2016

Trainer gives insight as to what we can expect from the great horse’s youngsters on eve of the 2016 QIPCO British Champions Series

It seems like only yesterday, but five years have passed since Frankel memorably blew away the opposition in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas.

The Sir Henry Cecil-trained colt won nine successive QIPCO British Champions Series contests by an incredible aggregate of more than 46 lengths before being retired at the end of 2012, having won all 14 of his races.

In his first three years as a stallion, he has covered about 500 mares. Potential suitors have had to pay £125,000 for his services.

This year the outstanding horse’s first offspring will be in action on the racecourse and Hugo Palmer, who has three in his care, has given an insight into what we can expect.

“All three of them are lovely in different ways,” he said. “They are all move very well.

“They are not totally straightforward but you don’t want a good horse to be totally straightforward – you want them to have a bit of life and spark to them.

“The trio that I’ve got have that but are not at all difficult. One is a tiny is bit sweaty but always has been.”

Palmer, who began training the year Frankel won the Guineas, is in no rush to get any of them on a racecourse and says it will be at least June before his are in action.

“I always thought the mastery of Henry’s training of Frankel is that he won an International Stakes and Champion Stakes with a horse who probably could have won the July Cup.

“It would be very easy to kick these beautifully bred Frankels in the belly and win sprint races with them because I’m sure they would, but the clever thing to do is to hold off.

“The dream is that we talking about one of them at this time next year for the Guineas.”

Stories that combine gambling and drinking usually end in tears but Palmer, who will saddle Galileo Gold in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday, says it was a combination of the two that led him on a path towards training.

He fondly recalls the two occasions, as a youngster 20 years ago, that led to him being bewitched by the thoroughbred.

“I was 16 and on the way to the pub with a school friend,” he said with a smile, “and we went into the bookies on the way. I think had a quid on me and he had two. We put them together and ended up backing eight or nine winners in the afternoon, walked out with about £60 each and went to the pub and got completely blind.

“Then I had an argument with the same friend about the Derby. I said Benny The Dip would win and he said it wouldn’t because Willie Ryan was riding – and that the last time he rode in the Derby he fell off.

“I always say to Willie Ryan he is responsible [for where I am now]. I won the bet, won the argument and backed Benny The Dip – and that was it, I was completely hooked.”

Frankie Dettori would have ridden Benny The Dip at Epsom had he not been claimed to ride a big outsider for Godolphin. The charismatic Italian will be aboard Galileo Gold this weekend so the story may yet have another chapter.

Haydock introduction for Frankel colt Frankuus

FRAANKUS will be bidding to continue the excellent strike-rate for his sire Frankel when the Mark Johnston-trained colt lines up in Haydock's 7f novice stakes at 7.45pm on Thursday, a day after Fair Eva's sparkling debut at the same course saw her become the third winner for her sire from four runners.

As you would expect for a son of the ten-time Group 1 winner, Frankuushails from a strong family being out of the Linamix mare Dookus, a daughter of Phoenix Stakes heroine Pharaoh's Delight whose other foals include the Listed scorer Pharmacist, the dam of dual US Grade 1 victor Red Rocks.

Dookus has produced two winners to date with Frankuus being a half-brother to the French 1m Group 3 winner and Group 1-placed US Law, a son of Lawman.

Considering his pedigree, Frankuus was a relatively inexpensive purchase at last year's Goffs Orby Yearling Sale when purchased by Mark Johnston Racing for €130,000.

That sum was enough to make him the second most expensive progeny of Frankel at the sale but was still some way below the €1.7m paid by the China Horse Club for a filly out of Alexander Goldrun.

Also making their debut in the race is the Charlie Appleby-trained Never A Word, a $180,000 purchase by Blandford Bloodstock at last year's Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

A son of Lonhro, Never A Word is a half-brother to the US Grade 3 winner Lucky Player with both being out of a placed Storm Cat half-sister to Alcibiades Stakes and Golden Rod Stakes scorer Runway Model.

Half-sister to Giant's Causeway in Leopardstown debut

Despite being a son of Frankel, Frankuus isn't the only regally bred runner on display on Thursday with Aidan O'Brien unleashing Butterflies in Leopardstown's 7f fillies maiden at 5.55pm.

A daughter of Galileo, Butterflies is a sister to the winning miler and Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes-placed Hanky Panky with both hailing from one of the strongest pedigrees in recent times as daughters of dual US Grade 2 winner Mariah's Storm.

From matings with Storm Cat, the daughter of Rahy has produced six-time Group 1 winner Giant's Causeway and Cherry Hinton Stakes heroine You'resothrilling, herself the dam of last year's dual 2,000 Guineas hero Gleneagles, the 2014 Irish 1,000 Guineas victress Marvellous and last season's 7f Park Stakes winner Coolmore.

Mariah's Storm is also grandam of the Great Voltigeur Stakes winner and dual Derby-placed Storm The Stars as well as last month's Festival Stakes winner Decorated Knight.

Pricey Galileo colt also in action at Leopardstown

The following 7f race for colts and geldings at 6.25pm sees the debut ofDouglas Macarthur, the third-top lot at last year's Tattersalls October Yearling Sale when bought by M V Magnier for 1,250,000gns.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the son of Galileo is not the first member of his family to change hands for a significant amount of money as he is a brother to Al Naamah who set a European record price for a yearling at public auction when purchased by Al Shaqab Racing for five million guineas at the 2013 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

Out of the 6f winner and two-time Listed-placed Alluring Park, a Green Desert half-sister to the five-time Group 1 hero New Approach, Douglas Macarthur is also a brother to the 2012 Oaks victress Was and half-brother to the 7f Listed scorer Janood.
