Frankel Watch: Top Top Trained by Ralph Beckett

Ralph Beckett, Frankel
With the start of the Flat turf season underway, we have already seen a Brocklesby Conditions Stakes winner in the shape of Izzer, trained by Mick Channon. 

No sign of any Frankel two-year-olds hitting the course just yet. However, we can be confident many will be on the gallops. It's interesting to consider a few Frankel two-year-olds, their breeding, ownership and training. 

Taking a quick look at Frankel's offspring for this year I notice the following colt trained by Ralphe Beckett. 

Top Top

This bay son of Frankel was born on the 7th February 2016, out of a mare called Jira. She was trained by Clive Brittain in the ownership of Saeed Manana racing fifteen times in her career, achieving two wins: a maiden and a Listed race. Her highest official rating being 100. A fair horse who competed at Group class. 

Top Top was bred by Darley Stud Management Co Ltd. He races in the colours of King Power Racing Co Ltd and cost 260,000G when purchased by Sackvilledonald from Tattersalls October Yearling Sales (Book 1) 2017.
