Applications to breed with Frankel ‘pretty high’

Posted on | 0 Responses

The world's top-rated horse ever – Frankel – is ready start his new life of stud later this month and applications to breed with him have been high.

Frankel won all 14 of his races in an illustrious career and was retired last year to a life of breeding.

It is hoped that he will be able to father an equine just as good as him and if he does, those with horse rider insurance will be queuing up to be able to work with them.

For a chance to breed with Frankel, the price is set at £125,000 – when put into context the next highest price currently set by Nathaniel is £20,000.

General manager of the Juddmonte thoroughbred breeding empire Philip Mitchell told BBC Sport that Frankel will have the best book of mares any first-season stallion has ever had.

"There have been about 250 applications, 60 for Group One race-winning mares, or mares which have produced a Group One winner, so the bar is pretty high," he told the news provider.
