Enable Booked For Repeat Visit To Dubawi

Enable will return to Dubawi | Emma Berry


Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will pay a return visit to Dubawi (Ire) in 2023 after she delivers her foal by the champion sire. The 11-time Group 1 winner and dual Arc heroine visited Kingman (GB) in her first year at stud and has a yearling colt by him. Enable's dam Concentric (GB) (Sadler's Wells) is also returning to Dubawi this season.

Thirty-three stallions across Europe will be sent mares from Juddmonte Farms this season, with the home team of stallions naturally being well supported from within.

Among a typically high-class book for Frankel (GB) will be 25 Juddmonte black-type performers or producers, including the Group 1 winner and Group 2 producer Emollient (Empire Maker), who has already produced Raclette (GB) from a previous Frankel mating, and her fellow top-level winners Emulous (GB) (Dansili {GB}), Juliet Foxtrot (GB) (Dansili {GB}), and Viadera (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}).

The list of Group 1 producers on the list include Repose (Quiet American), the dam of the globetrotting young sire State Of Rest (Ire) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}), who will return to Frankel this year, as well as Bird Flown (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), whose Classic-winning son Siskin (First Defence) is now at stud in Japan. Nimble Thimble (Mizzen Mast) has already thrown the G1 Fillies' Mile winner Quadrilateral (GB) by Frankel and she is set to return.

The Group 2 winners in his book include the Rockfel winner Isabella Giles (Ire) (Belardo {Ire}), Nay Lady Nay (Ire) (No Nay Never), who is a full-sister to Arizona (Ire), the Sapphire S. victrix Soffia (GB) (Kyllachy {GB}), and Starformer (Dynaformer). The Group 2 producers Flare of Firelight (Ire) (Birdstone) and Portodora (Kingmambo) are also set to visit Frankel in 2023.

Following a stellar year with his juveniles, Kingman (GB) is once again receiving strong support. The G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud heroine winner Passage Of Time (GB) (Dansili {GB}) heads the list, and she is already a prized producer as the dam of group winners Time Test (GB) and Tempus (GB).

Group 1-winning sprinter African Rose (GB) (Observatory), whose daughter Fair Eva (GB) became Frankel's first group winner when landing the G3 Princess Margaret S., is set to visit Kingman, as is the Group 3 winner Big Break (GB) (Dansili {GB}), a sister to the prolific Famous Name (GB), who is already the dam of listed winner Georgeville (GB).

African Rose's sister Helleborine (GB) is already responsible for the G2 Coventry S. winner and Coolmore sire Calyx (GB), and that mating will be repeated this year, while Group 1 winners Proviso (GB) (Dansili {GB}) and Romantica (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), and Group 1 producer Scuffle (GB) (Daylami {Ire}), the dam of St Leger winner Logician (GB) (Frankel {GB}), are also booked to Kingman.

Bated Breath (GB) will again cover Kilo Alpha (GB) (King's Best), whose daughter by the same stallion, Juliet Sierra (GB), won last year's G3 Dick Poole Fillies' S.

The mare has also produced GI Jenny Wiley S. winner Juliet Foxtrot (GB) to Bated Breath's sire Dansili. Other Juddmonte mares on Bated Breath's list for 2023 include listed winner Pavlosk (herself the dam of listed-winning 2-year-old Zarinsk); group-placed Straight Thinking (dam of listed winner Straight Answer); and group-placed Midweek (dam of promising 2022 2-year-old winner Halfway Line).

The Breeders' Cup Mile winner Expert Eye (GB) was represented by his first juvenile runners last season and has 25 winners on the board to date from that debut crop. He will cover the G1 Falmouth S. winner Timepiece (GB) (Zamindar) and Photographic (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), the dam of the G3 Musidora S. winner Shutter Speed (GB) (Dansili {GB}).

Frankel's listed-winning daughter Vesela (GB) is scheduled for a mating with Oasis Dream (GB) this year, and her dam Arabesque (GB) (Zafonic) has already worked well with the Juddmonte stalwart having produced three black-type horses by him, led by the successful stallion Showcasing (GB).

The dual winner Bonne Idee (GB), whose half-brother Nostrum (GB) (Kingman {GB}) has strong Classic claims for Juddmonte this season, is another daughter of Frankel to be heading Oasis Dream's way.

A mark of the success of the Juddmonte breeding operation is that so many homebreds stand successfully at other stud farms. Two of those, Ballylinch Stud's New Bay (GB) and Whitsbury Manor's Showcasing, are on the list to receive Juddmonte mares. Continental Drift (GB), a daughter of Grade I winner Intercontinental (GB) (Green Desert), has already produced Group 3 winner Masen (GB) and is booked to New Bay, along with the Group 3 winners Dandhu (Ire) (Dandy Man {Ire}) and Gaining (GB) (American Post {GB}). Showcasing will cover the dual Group 2 winner Lucky Kristale (GB) (Lucky Story) and Lilyfire (First Defence), who already has three stakes performers to her name.

Along with Enable and Concentric, Dubawi also has the G1 Fillies' Mile Winner Quadrilateral (GB) and Frankel's sister Chiasma (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) booked to him. Other outside stallions to be covering Juddmonte mares include Shadwell's star newcomer Baaeed (GB), who is being sent Monsoon Moon (GB) (Kingman {GB}), a winning half-sister to Logician.

Group 3 winner Sacred Bridge (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}) heads to Ireland to visit Dark Angel (Ire). Champion racemare Midday (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) and her listed-winning daughter Mori (GB) (Frankel {GB}) will be covered by Lope De Vega (Ire), while Expert Eye's dam Exemplify (GB) (Dansili {GB}) heads to Mehmas (Ire).

Frankel's listed-winning half-sister Joyeuse (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) is booked to No Nay Never, while the Group 3 winner and maiden mare Agave (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) will go to Sea The Stars (Ire).

On the list to be covered for the first time by leading French sire Siyouni (Fr) are two daughters of Galileo, the listed-winning duo of Elegant Verse (GB) and Noon Star, who are out of Group 1 winners Special Duty (GB) and Midday, respectively.
