How much Money did Frankel cost as a Yearling?

How much money did Frankel cost as a yearling?

Frankel didn't have a cost because he was home bred by Juddmonte Farms Ltd, in the ownership of Khalid bin Abdullah Al Saud. Sadly the Prince passed away on the 12th January 2021. His association with top-class thoroughbreds including Frankel, Enable and Dancing Brave detail a truly successful owner breeder of the highest repute. 

So Frankel was never sent to the sales as a foal, yearling or two-year-old. 

The mare of Frankel named Kind is the mother of a number of very talented thoroughbreds including: Frankel, Noble Mission, Bullet Train, Joyeuse and Morpheus. 

Frankel is sired by the legendary Galileo who was sire of Noble Mission, a full-brother to Frankel. 

Both are sires standing at Banstead Manor Stud, Newmarket. 

Frankel has a stud fee of £175,000, this was raised from an initial £125,000 in 2018. Frankel has been standing at stud since 2013. 

Of his progeny a number of horses have proved very successful including:

Frankel's Top 5 Offspring Earners

Cracksman who was trained by John Gosden, winning 8 of his 11 races and achieving total prize earnings of £2,793,064. He, too, has been standing as a stallion for a fee of £17,500 since 2019.

Mozu Ascot, who was trained in Japan by Yoshito Yahagi, who won 3 of his 18 races but total earnings of £2,565,988. He now stands as a stallion at Arrow Stud, Japan. He costs 2,000,000 JPY. 

Soul Stirring, trained by Kazuo Fujisawa, in Japan, in the ownership of Shadai Race Horse Co Ltd. This mare raced 14 times with 3 wins with total earnings of £1,851,057.

Call The Wind, still in training in France, with Freddy Head, in the ownership of George Strawbridge. This son of Frankel has (at the time of writing) total earnings of £1,718,871. 

Simply Brilliant, originally in training with Richard Fahey until changed trainer in November 2017 when heading to Hong Kong with F C Lor in the ownership of Simply Brilliant Syndicate. At the time of writing (as she is still in training) she has achieved total prize winnings of £1,158,510. 

Frankel continues to sire exceptional horses, which race around the world. 

They continue to sell yearlings in the millions.
