Frankel's first foals: pictures!

(29 Posts)

The first foal, a colt out of Chrysanthemum, was born at Coolmore Stud in Ireland on 11th January but no pictures have been released.

The second reported foal, a filly out if an as-yet unnamed mare, was born at the National Stud in Newmarket over the weekend.

Fabulous !

They've now named the dam as Song - a full-sister to Group 1 winners Quarter Moon and Yesterday. She was purchased by her Bahrainian owner at last Novembers Goffs Breeding Stock Sale carrying this filly for €1million.

my claim to fame this: I was the exercise rider to chrysanthemum grin I am thrilled about the new arrival

MikeTheShite Tue 21-Jan-14 16:24:57

well ive ridden her about 10 times in her hayday

Oh and a picture of the colt and mum was released. I have it, but don't know how to put it up.

Sorry for the mega posts I am just excited ive found someone else so excited!

A great claim to fame! I'm lucky that I'm in HQ so have been to see Frankel at Banstead several times. I last saw him in November and he looks like a real stallion now, rather than a slightly chubby racehorse wink

Aaaaaah.

I want to cuddle them! And take them home with me (i would happily sleep In a stable and have done many times grin

She's quite the star! Front page news grin

Another one on the ground!

Danedream is reported to have foaled a filly last night. There is a picture doing the rounds on Twitter but some are claiming it is of Danedream herself as a foal and others that it is her daughter.

Thank you for posting these Frankel - few more to go yet!

Yup, 3 down 123 to go!

Another colt was born in the USA a few weeks ago! out of Compelling, a daughter of G1 winner Damson.

As with the others seen so far, he's bay with prominent white facial markings!
