Frankel’s first foal born in Ireland


The first mare tested in foal to superstar galloper Frankel has produced a colt foal.

The colt is also the first foal from Chrysanthemum, a Danehill Dancer mare who is a dual Group 3 winner who was also third in the G1 Pretty Polly Stakes.

Described as an attractive bay colt with a blaze, the foal was born at 8.30pm on Saturday, January 11 at Coolmore Stud in Ireland.

Frankel, who stood last season at Juddmonte Farms for £125,000, covered 133 mares and 126 were confirmed in foal.

Juddmonte Farms General Manager Philip Mitchell commented: “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 was the first horse in 60 years to be champion at two, three and four years of age. He retired to stud in 2012 having been unbeaten in 14 races, 10 at Group One.
