Frankel fever is has returned — as photos of his first filly have been released.
The as yet unnamed bay foal, who is out of a mare called Song, was born at the National Stud in Newmarket at around 5.30am on Sunday (19 January).
The National Stud’s Brian O’Rourke said that both mare and foal were “doing well”, and that the filly is “a very nice quality, athletic individual”.
She is the 2nd foal born to the unbeaten Flat star.
Coolmore reported that the foal was a handsome colt “with a good head, a white blaze and great presence”.
Song is a full sister to Group 1 winners Yesterday and Quarter Moon. She is unraced, and was bought by Khalid Abdul Rahim of Bahrain for €1m in the Paulyn Dispersal at last year’s Goffs November Sale.
She will return home to Friarstown Stud in Ireland at the end of the season. Song is also due to visit Darley Stud’s Dubawi this yar.
He commands a £125,000 stud fee and covered 133 mares in his first season, of which 126 were confirmed in foal.
