Son Of Frankel Chaldean Wins Tattersalls Acomb Stakes Group 3 at York

Another outstanding offspring from super sire Frankel.  

Readers will have noted Chaldean has been mentioned a number of times on Frankel Blog and this rising star proved his status as a quality horse winning the Acomb Stakes Group 3. 

A gutsy display at York, racing over 7f on Good going (good to firm in places), saw this son of Frankel gain pattern-class success on his third start, after winning well last time at Newbury when powering home. The 7/2 second-favourite led from over 3f out and held the late challenge of Mill Stream (who faded into fourth place), while withstanding a determined effort from Irish raider Indestructible. Chaldean found plenty under a brilliant ride from Ryan Moore to win by a half length, beating the third by three-and-a-quarter lengths (Oviedo, trained by Edward Bethell). This Class 1 race offered a win price of £85,065.
