Frankel's Stud Fee Held at £125,000

Champion freshman sire has had five group winners this year.

Multiple champion and European freshman sire sensation Frankel will have his stud fee held steady at £125,000 ($157,500) for 2017, according to Nov. 11 announcement by Banstead Manor Stud.

The son of Galileo, who was first horse to win successive Cartier Horse of the Year titles in 2011 and 2012, has gotten off to a remarkably strong start at stud. 

"Few horses have made such a global impact as Frankel," said Banstead Manor stud director Simon Mockridge. "His sublime racing career, physique, and pedigree provided the catalyst for the outstanding worldwide support he received since retirement. To date he has yielded five group winners and 18 individual winners--a truly explosive start and one that augurs well for the future. This success has been further cemented in the commercial markets with a global average of £560,000 ($705,000)."

Though ranked third on the Racing Post's leading freshman sire list by progeny earnings with £364,346, he is the leading sire by percentage of winners from runners (54%) among sires with 10 or more starters and is the only sire among the top five ranked earnings with more than three runners with Racing Post Ratings of 100 or more.
