Frankel, who won all 14 of his races, will be visited by an outstanding lineup of mares, including around 60 who have either won a group/grade I race, produced a group/grade I winner, or both.
Grade I winner Stacelita, an Eclipse Award finalist for 2011 champion female turf runner, has been retired from racing and booked to Smart Strike.
Favored Stacelita added a grade I North American victory to her stellar record when she used a rail-skimming ride by jockey Ramon Dominguez to capture the $750,000 Beverly D. Stakes (gr. IT) at Arlington Park Aug. 13.
Stacelita improved her record to eight wins from 11 starts with a hard-fought victory over Antara in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet (Fr-I) at Deauville Aug. 22.
