Racing royalty will be on show at Kensington Palace on Monday (16 June) as the first of Frankel’s offspring goes under the hammer.

At the Goffs London Sale, in association with QIPCO, a foal fathered by the unbeaten star will become the 1st in the world to be sold.

The unnamed colt (pictured above) will be the final lot of the inaugural auction on the eve of Royal Ascot and will be sold with his dam, Crystal Gaze.

The mare is expecting her 2nd foal by Frankel early next year.

The mare and foal are expected to sell for a 7-figure sum.

The colt was born on 18 March and will be paraded by Tweenhills Farm & Stud.

“He is a very handsome colt with huge presence and great action,” said Tweenhills owner David Redvers.

“He has what I would call a typical Frankel temperament in that he knows he is special and really owns the show. At this stage he looks like a speedy type, which is no surprise given his mother has bred some excellent sprint winners.”

Goffs’ Henry Beeby added: “It will be a day of 1sts. Goffs will hold the 1st thoroughbred racehorse sale in Central London, which will climax with the 1st foal by the greatest racehorse ever, Frankel, to be sold at public auction anywhere in the world. The sale location is stunning and so is the foal.”
