A Busy Saturday for High-Profile Frankel Two-Year-Olds (2YO)

What an exciting day. 

Today we have four potentially smart Frankel two-year-olds making their debut.

Amazingly, three are contesting the same race: 1:15 Ascot. 

The 7f Betfred Supports Jack Berry House British Fillies' Novices Stakes (Plus 10/GGB Race) (Class 5) (2YO).

These three well-regarded fillies will be making their mark this season and it would be no surprise to see one of these talents winning today. 

Snow Lantern

Many readers will remember Richard Hannon's star filly, Sky Lantern, won impressively on debut and carved out a career of winning at the highest level. In a career of 16 races, she won 6 and finished runner up  4 times. 

Highlights include:

The Moyglare Stakes (Group 1)
English 1000 Guineas (Group 1)
Coronation Stakes (Group 1) 
Sun Chariot Stakes (Group 1)

Snow Lantern is a grey daughter of Frankel, a March foal, in the ownership of Rockcliffe Stud. 

Zabeel Queen

This bay daughter of Frankel is out of the mare Dubai Queen, a winning who raced at listed class when in training with Luca Cumani and similarly owned by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum. This homebred is in training with Roger Varian and already hold an entry for the Moyglare Stakes (Group 1). 

Light Refrain

This well-bred daughter of Frankel is in the ownership of Her Majesty The Queen. The mare was similarly owned and trained by William Haggas. This January foal may be the first Frankel bred by the Queen. 

In addition, we have a very exciting horse in training with Charlie Appleby, racing at Newmarket. 

Dhahabi -

This a bay colt and son of Frankel out of the mare Fleche D'or and he is a half-brother to Derby winner Golden Horn (pictured). This March foal cost a wallet-busting 3.1 Million guineas.

What a day of Frankels we have to look forward to.
