Meet Frank, The £1m Wonderfoal: Offspring Of Legendary Horse Frankel Sells at Kensington Palace Auction On The Eve Of Royal Ascot, His father is hailed as the greatest racehorse of all time, unbeaten in 14 spectacular outings.
Now meet the family: Son of Frankel, his thoroughbred mother.?.?. and a new brother or sister on the way.
They have nicknamed the little one Frank, for the moment at least – and upon his already impressive haunches may rest the chance of securing not just a fortune for his owners, but another place in history for the Frankel dynasty.
Bidding for the three-month-old foal, sold with his pregnant mother, opened at £1million yesterday. At a landmark auction in the grounds of Kensington Palace, he became the first ‘Frankelfoal’ the champion has sired since retirement to be offered at a public sale.
The three-in-one package sold for £1,150,000 – or £1,462,800 including premium and tax.
That works out at more than £11 for every minute of Frank’s 90-day life so far. He was bought by Michael Vincent Magnier, who runs one of the most prominent bloodstock operations in Europe.
