  • Recently retired racing star Frankel is settling into his new home at Banstead Manor Stud near Newmarket.

    And Juddmonte Farms has announced that when the four-year-old’s duties begin next year he will command a hefty fee of £125,000.

    Frankel, who is owned by Prince Khalid Abdulla, was waved off from Warren Place by Sir Henry Cecil and his staff earlier this month (8 November).

    Philip Mitchell, Juddmonte Farms’ general manager at Banstead Manor Stud, said: “We believe our stallion roster is the best we have been able to offer breeders — and we are very excited.

    “The fee for Frankel reflects his merits as being perhaps the greatest racehorse we have ever witnessed. He is by Galileo, who is now recognised as the best sire in the world, and out of Kind, a winner of six races and herself a daughter of one of the most influential stallions in the history of thoroughbred breeding, Danehill.”
