Frankel’s Top 5 Foals

Frankel winning the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot 2012

Frankel – depending on who you ask, possibly the best horse of all time. 14 wins from 14 starts, earning just shy of £3,000,000 in prize money during his two-year career.

Even though he retired in 2012 his impact on the racing world continues. Frankel’s first foal was born in 2014, and over the last 6 years, his progeny have broken numerous records.

We’ve ranked his top 5 foals in order below!

Frankel’s Top 5 Foals

5. Logician

Racing Post Rating – 119
(Frankel – Scuffle)

Unbeaten in five starts to date, his latest win in the 2019 William Hill St Leger saw him set a new course record when he justified odds-on favouritism. He didn’t race at two for owner Khalid Abdullah and came to Doncaster with the Group 2 Great Voltigeur Stakes victory on his CV. His potential is undoubted and his prospects at middle distances at four look promising for connections.

4. Without Parole

Racing Post Rating – 120
(Frankel – Without You Babe)

Starting his career with John Gosden, Without Parole made a winning start to his career on the all-weather at Newcastle in December. At three he won his first three races with victory in the St James’s Palace the highlight at the Royal meeting. He subsequently joined Chad Brown in America and disappointed earlier this year when finishing towards the rear when favourite for the Pegasus World Cup Invitational won by Zulu Alpha.

3. Monarchs Glen

Racing Post Rating – 121
(Frankel – Mirabilis)

Carrying the famous colours of his sire, this Khalid Abdullah-owned son of Frankel went on to better things at three after been gelded in the summer when winning twice from three starts, notably the Group 3 Darley Stakes at the back end. His sole win in Britain afterwards for then trainer John Gosden came in the Wolferton Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2018 before he finished his career with a few unsuccessful runs in America when under the care of Bill Mott.

2. Elaragam

Racing Post Rating – 122
(Frankel – Attraction)

Trained by Mark Johnston Elarqam achieved a career best RPR of 122. Unbeaten twice in as many starts at two, his 3yo career was winless in three runs after his seasonal debut fourth-place finish behind Saxon Warrior in the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas. Wind surgery at the back end helped yield a further three wins at four including the Group 2 York Stakes.

1. Cracksman

Racing Post Rating – 131
(Frankel – Rhadegunda)

Crowned European Champion at three and four, this winner of eight races from 11 starts finished his career with another runaway victory in the QIPCO Champion Stakes at Ascot in October 2018. After his narrow defeat by Capri in the 2017 Irish Derby, the John Gosden-trained colt went on to land six of his next seven, including the 2017 QIPCO Champion Stakes by seven lengths, while the following season at four he also landed the Prix Ganay and Coronation Cup under regular rider Frankie Dettori.
