There’s no change in the service fee for the 2014 season for dual World Champion racehorse Frankel, with £125,000 getting a breeding to the superstar.

Juddmonte Farm in Newmarket announced on Monday that only two of their stallion’s fees had gone up, and Frankel was not one of them.

Frankel, a five-year-old by Galileo, stood his first season at Juddmonte in 2013. His first book included more than 60 mares who have won a Group 1 race, or produced a Group 1 winner, or both.

General Manager Philip Mitchell said: “We were delighted with Frankel’s first season at stud and his fee continues to reflect his status as a world champion racehorse.”

Of Frankel’s stablemates at Juddmonte, Dansili and Oasis Dream rise to £95,000 and £85,000 respectively, with Bated Breath (£8,000), Cacique (£12,000) and Rail Link (£5,000) remaining the same.

Juddmonte Farms has also announced the retirement of its senior stallion Zamindat, who turns 20 in 2014.

The full brother to 2000 Guineas winner Zafonic has been retired from stud duties due to an age-related decline in his fertility.

Zamindar (Gone West x Zaizafon) went some way to living up to the high expectations on the track by proving himself to be one of the best two-year olds of his generation, with a victory in the Group 3 Prix de Cabourg and a narrow defeat in the Group 1 Prix Morny.

Despite never covering large books (he has fewer than 700 foals from 13 crops of racing age), Zamindar produced more than 50 black-type performers, headed by the unbeaten champion and Classic winner Zarkava.
