5 Frankel 2yos for William Haggas in 2019

It seems every horse trainer wants a Fankel 2yo in their string for the 2019 Flat turf season.

Who can blame them?

You may have read that this year's crop of Frankel's is heading to horse trainers big and small. Sir Michael Stoute has a least 10 two-year-olds sire by Frankel while the smallest stable in Newmarket has one juvenile for Ilka Gansera-Leveque, her pride and joy a bay colt called Amtiyaz. 

Our little horse racing blog will be following the fortunes of many trainers lucky enough to have a colt, filly or gelding sired by ''the greatest thoroughbred in the world'' in their mitts. 

So what about William Haggas

No finer trainer of quality racehorses and Somerville Lodge Stables, Newmarket is almost bursting at the seams with quality two-year-olds from influential owners. Taking a look at Juddmonte Stallions website we see that Haggas has at least five Frankel offspring ready to hit the track. There is a chance a few may even follow in their sire's tracks by making their debut at Newmarket. 

Let's take a look at the 5 Frankel two-year-olds as they are worthy of a scribble in your notebook. 

With Reason - This chestnut filly is a March foal out of the dam Eminently in the ownership of Mr & Mrs G Middlebrook. 

Born A King - Is a bay colt and February foal out of a French Listed-raced mare in the ownership of Mishref Al-Khatani  & Mr Faisal. 

Fundtank -  A March foal, bay filly, out of the dam Millevini, who raced once in Norway when finishing second. Fundtank cost 190,000 guineas at the yearling sales and in the ownership of Eminent Kind Ltd.

Mr Curiosity - Is a beautifully bred bay colt out of the dam who won three of her four starts when trained by Haggas in the ownership of A E Oppenheimer. Her final start saw a win at Listed class. Mr Curiosity is a full brother to three-year-old Frankellina who won on her debut at Great Yarmouth when made 5/4f. She holds an Irish Oaks entry. Mr Curiosity is in the ownership of Hascombe & Valiant Stud Ltd. 

Jabeen - An early January foal. This chestnut filly is out of the dam Sortita who raced five times, winning on two occasions. In the ownership of Shadwell Estate Co Ltd.
