Frankel’s first season yearlings are set to star at Tattersalls Book One Sale at Newmarket this week
When Frankel’s progeny enter the sales ring at Tattersalls this week, the atmosphere and bidding is certain to reach fever-pitch. There has never been so much interest in a first season sire as there has been in Frankel.
With the Book One Sale traditionally being your best opportunity to buy a Group One winning horse in Europe and the with the added Frankel factor expect the prices to hit the millions.
The Highclere Stud colt out of Model Queen (lot 339) is likely to gather a lot of interest alongside Watership Down Stud’s colts out of Dar Re Mi (lot 148) and Dorcas Lane (lot 167).
With fifteen lots of Frankel’s yearlings due to go to the ring currently expect it to be a record pay day for a first season sire.
