FIRST FOAL BORN TO FRANKEL

The first foal by undefeated dual world champion Frankel was born at Coolmore on Saturday night.

The new arrival, a colt, is the first foal out of six-year-old mare dual Group winner Chrysanthemum, who was the first mare confirmed in foal to Frankel last year. She raced in the ownership of Michael Tabor, Sue Magnier and Derrick Smith, the famous Ballydoyle triumvirate.

Born at 8.30pm on Saturday, the foal is reported by Coolmore as “a handsome colt with a good head, a white blaze and great presence” and is already being quoted at 66-1 to win the 2017 Derby at Epsom.

Juddmonte Farms general manager Philip Mitchell said: “From the reports that I have received, Frankel’s first foal is everything we could have hoped for. These are very exciting times for everyone who has supported the horse and we much look forward to the rest of his first crop of foals.”

Frankel retired to stud in 2012 as the winner of 14 races - ten at the highest level.

Standing at his birthplace Banstead Manor for an advertised fee of £125,000, the son of champion sire Galileo covered 133 mares in his first season, of whom 126 were confirmed in foal.
