Juddmonte Announce Frankel to Service Enable

For the 2022 breeding season Juddmonte will be utilising over 30 different stallions, with the home roster getting its usual strong support.

Frankel’s book includes the Group and Listed winners Alocasia (a half-sister to Gr.2 winner Set Piece), Capla Temptress (Gr.1 winner), Classical Times (a half-sister to Newspaperofrecord), Environs (a half-sister to Frankel’s Gr.3 winning son Delaware), Grand Jete, Soffia, Starformer (the dam of Listed winner Flavius) and Winsili (Gr.1 winner). He is also covering the proven producers Bird Flown (dam of Gr.1 winner Siskin), Portodora (dam of the aforementioned Alocasia and Set Piece), Ruscombe (dam of Frankel’s Listed winning daughter Petricor, who is now in training with Bill Mott), and Scuffle (the dam of Logician). He is also covering the blacktype performer Peace Charter – who is a daughter of multiple Gr.1 winner Emollient and therefore a half-sister to the very promising Frankel filly Raclette.

Kingman had another stellar season in 2021 – Palace Pier, Schnell Meister and Domestic Spending winning six Gr.1 races between them last year, and he will be represented by over 190 beautifully-bred two-year-olds this year. His book of mares mirrors his standing as one of the world’s best sires and includes Gr.1 winners Emulous, Juliet Foxtrot, Quadrilateral and Samba Inc, and proven producers Flare Of Firelight (dam of Gr.2 winner Threat), Mirror Lake (dam of Gr.2 winner Imaging), Nimble Thimble (dam of the aforementioned Quadrilateral) and Trojan Queen (dam of Gr.3 winner Sangarius); and young Group/Graded-winning mares Dandhu, Gaining, Isabella Giles, Lucky Kristale (a half-sister to Love), Nay Lady Nay (a sister to Arizona), Pocket Square and Sun Maiden (a half-sister to Midday).

2022 will see the first runners hit the track for the top-class two-year-old/miler Expert Eye (whose dam is visiting Mehmas) and Juddmonte are continuing their strong support of the son of Acclamation. The mares going to him include the Gr.2 winning-miler Modern Look (dam of the Gr.3 winner/Gr.1 placed Grand Jete), Listed winner Pavlosk, Showcasing’s blacktype sister Tendu, and her winning Frankel filly Beheld. Tendu is a daughter of Oasis Dream, the sire of the European Champion two-year-old Native Trail, and amongst others he will cover the Gr.1 winner Announce, Gr.3 winner Hot Snap (a half-sister to Oasis Dream’s outstanding daughter Midday) and the winning Frankel filly Wensleydale, whose dam is the Group-winning sprinter Divine.

Bated Breath will be standing for a career-high £15,000 this season and his mares include Photographic (the dam of Gr.3 winner Shutter Speed) as well as the Listed winners Variable and Zaminast (a half-sister to Famous Name), the young Group-placed mare Midweek, and Star Snap, who is a Galileo daughter of the Gr.3 winner Hot Snap.

Other homebred stallions being supported include New Bay who is covering the Listed winner Heliac amongst others; Showcasing, whose mares include Gr.1 winner African Rose (dam of Fair Eva and relative of Native Trail), Continental Drift (a daughter of Intercontinental and dam of Listed winner Masen) and Deliberate (dam of Gr.2 winners Headman and Projected, the latter by Showcasing); and Time Test, whose book includes Across The Floor, the dam of Irish Gr.3 winner Acanella.

Time Test’s dam, the Gr.1 winner Passage Of Time, is one of several mares visiting Dubawi – other mares include Enable (along with her half-sister Entitle and dam Concentric), Frankel’s sister Chiasma, and Frankel’s blacktype winning daughters Fount (Gr.3 winner out of multiple Gr.1 winner Ventura, who herself visits Night Of Thunder), Mori (Listed winner out of Midday) and Obligate (Gr.2 winner and a granddaughter of Hasili). Joyeuse, a half-sister to Frankel, will visit Camelot, while her daughter Jovial will visit Wootton Bassett (along with Enable’s half-sister Portrush and Banks Hill’s Gr.1-winning daughter Romantica). Joyeuse’s other daughter Jubiloso is visiting Sea The Stars, along with Bated Breath’s Gr.1-winning daughter Viadera. Viadera’s dam Sacred Shield is one of two Gr.1-producers visiting Siyouni, the other being Juliet Foxtrot’s dam Kilo Alpha. Siyouni’s Gr.1-winning son St Mark’s Basilica will be covering the Gr.1 winners Midday and Timepiece. Gr.1 winner Proviso will visit Lope De Vega, along with Gr.3 winner Big Break (the dam of Listed winner Georgeville). Matings which produced talented two-year-olds last year are being repeated – with Straight Answer’s dam Straight Thinking returning to Kodiac – and Juncture’s dam Occurrence visiting Dark Angel again.
