Frankel Watch: Frankenstella to Debut for John Quinn

You never have to wait too long for a Frankel 2yo to hit the track. 

Well, today we have a debutante from John Quinn's stable in the ownership of Phoenix Thoroughbreds Limited. Frankenstella is a bay daughter of Frankel out of the dam L'Ancresse. The dam raced in the familiar silks of Michael Tabor and run eleven times for Aidan O'Brien. She won on debut (Roger Charlton) and once more at Listed class. In addition, she raced seven times at Group 1, including the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket when unplaced. Her concluding race saw this bay daughter of Darshaan finish second, losing by a neck, behind Sir Michael Stoute's Islington, at Santa Anita (USA) when competing in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare (Grade 1). L'Ancresse achieved total prize winnings of £240,464. 

Frankenstella makes her debut at (12:20) Nottingham competing in the 1m 1/2f (1m 75y) (Inner) Download The Mansion Bet App Maiden Fillies' Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Class 5) (2yo). 

Eleven runners take part for winning prize money of £3,881. The going is described as heavy.

Frankenstella has been supported in the market. The stable can ready a debutant. Bellwood Cottage Stables, Settrington, Malton, North Yorkshire have done well with their two-year-olds this season with the exceptional Liberty Beach & Coastal Mist. 

Good luck to connections.
