FRANKEL SET FOR OUTSTANDING LINE UP OF MARES

FRANKEL will start his new career as a stallion later this week and Juddmonte has released more details of the champion racehorse’s book of mares for 2013.

FRANKEL, who won all 14 of his races, will be visited by an outstanding line-up of mares, including around 60 that have either won a Gr.1, produced a Gr.1 winner – or both.

In addition to the high class mares already mentioned in the press, FRANKEL's book includes several dams of European Classic winners, including Flirtation (dam of English and Irish 1000 Guineas winner Attraction), Honorine (dam of Irish Derby winner Treasure Beach), Lady Vettori (dam of French 2000 Guineas and French Derby winner Lope de Vega), Maycocks Bay (dam of dual Oaks winner Sariska), Musical Treat (dam of English and Irish 1000 Guineas winner Finsceal Beo), Quest To Peak (dam of English and French 1000 Guineas winner Special Duty), Soignee (dam of French Oaks winner Stacelita), Waldmark (dam of St Leger winner Masked Marvel) and Zomaradah (dam of Irish 2000 Guineas winner Dubawi).

Juddmonte Farms general manager Philip Mitchell commented: “His book of mares is as one would hope and expect for ‘the best racehorse ever’. We are most grateful to all the Breeders in Europe, America and Japan, who have put their faith in FRANKEL and as a result we have one of the most impressive books of mares that a first season sire has received.”
