Frankel Watch: 4 Frankel 2yos to Tantalise

Four Frankel 2yos
Frankel Blog likes to keep you informed of the present as well as the long-term plans of Frankel two-year-olds (2yo) which make their mark on our radar. 

Images of us sitting at the bottom of the sea in an old, rusty submarine with FRANKEL written on the side. A dash of white, pink and green to show our patronage. Lucky barnacle-encrusted horseshoe sitting at the stern for those who follow in our wake. 

Often, we detail horses here and there. However, this next few days we could be in for a Frankel spectacular to tantalise even the most subdued of readers. 

I hear you say: ''What's he talking about?''

Well, starting today we have potentially four Frankel two-year-old ready to roll. Our radar has been bleeping like Alan Bailey on a cold winter's morning.


1:45 Sandown - 

We have the Mark Johnston-trained Unresolved making his debut. This bay colt is one of eight two-year-olds to race over the 7f trip with Silvestre De Sousa booked to ride. Presently priced 5/1. It will be interesting to see how Saif Ali's April foal starts his racing career. 


1:50 Ascot - 

I'm quite excited by this relatively expensive Frankel filly named Queen Daenerys, trained by Roger Varian. Carlburg Stables have done well this season with Daahyeh, who won the Albany Stakes (Group 3) at Royal Ascot, and owner H H SH Nasser Bin Hamad Al Khalifa will be expecting a bold show from this $500,000 yearling purchase. 

2:10 Thirsk - 

Readers will remember we pointed out another of Mark Johnston's Frankel flying machines named Frankel's Storm, in the ownership of Nick Bradley Racing 13. I must thank Nick and a number of the syndicate for sharing our post on Twitter. I'm sure connections were a little bit disappointed with the first run at Newmarket where she finished seventh of eight. I don't think she was well served by a wide draw, running more down the centre of the track, as it didn't look the best place to be with some bias. This looks a prime opportunity. 

You may be saying: ''I've heard about these Frankels in previous posts. So you have. However, you haven't heard about this next colt whose been flying up the gallops for Ralph Beckett.


2:15 Newmarket (Also, has an entry for Monday at Ffos Las)

Jacksonian is in the ownership of Mr Frankel himself K Abdullah. This chestnut colt is a son of Frankel, an April foal, out of an unraced mare Kalima.

Good luck to connections.
