The Juddmonte stallions at exercise | Laura Green


Juddmonte has announced that Concentric (GB) (Sadler’s Wells), the dam of dual Arc winner Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), is to visit Frankel (GB) in 2019. The 15-year-old mare is currently carrying a full-sibling to Enable and has a 2-year-old filly by Frankel named Portrush (GB), who is to join her elder half-sister at John Gosden’s stable.

Concentric is one of a number of high-class members of the Juddmonte broodmare band who will be covered by the star of the Banstead Manor Stud stallion yard this season, along with Hasili’s Grade 1-winning daughter Heat Haze (GB) (Green Desert), and fellow top-level winners Emollient (Empire Maker), Proportional (GB) (Beat Hollow {GB}), Special Duty (GB) (Hennessy), Samba Inc (Arg) (Include) and Union Strike (Union Rags). Classical Times (GB), a Lawman (Fr) half-sister to GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) is also among Frankel’s book for 2019.

Meanwhile, Frankel’s dam Kind (GB) (Danehill), is booked for a return visit to Galileo (Ire) and his listed-winning half-sister Joyeuse (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) will also travel to Ireland to be covered by Dark Angel (Ire).

Kingman (GB), who made such an eye-catching start with his first runners last season, will also be graced with some eligible mates, including the Group/Grade 1 winners/producers African Rose (GB) (Observatory), Promising Lead (GB) (Danehill), Proviso (GB) (Dansili {GB}), Ventura (Chester House), and Winter Sunrise (GB) (Pivotal {GB}), the dam of Winsili (GB) (Dansili {GB}).

Oasis Dream sired the top-rated 2-year-old filly in Europe in 2018, Bill and Tim Gredley’s homebred Pretty Pollyanna (GB), as well as G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest winner Polydream (GB). Among the Juddmonte mares he will cover this season are Shared Account (GB) (Dansili {GB}), who has already produced the G2-placed filly Sand Share (GB) by him, and Straight Thinking (Mizzen Mast), a half-sister to G1 Prix Jean Romanet winner Announce (GB).

Bated Breath (GB) will be sent Palmette (GB), a full-sister to young stallion sensation Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), and Solar Pursuit (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), a half-sister to Group 1/Grade I winners Polish Summer (GB) and Meteor Storm (GB).

The latest recruit to the Juddmonte stallion division is the GI Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Expert Eye. The son of Acclamation (GB) will be supported with 12 Juddmonte mares, including eight black-type winners or producers. Among them are Mirabilis (Lear Fan), the dam of Frankel’s Group 3-winning son Monarch’s Glen (GB), and the listed winner Zaminast (GB) (Zamindar), a half-sister to the 17-time stakes winner Famous Name (GB) (Dansili {GB}).

Juddmonte will also be sending Group 2 winner Starformer (Dynaformer) to Galileo, while the four mares booked to Dubawi (Ire) include G1 Prix Jean Romanet winner Romantica (GB), a daughter of Galileo and Banks Hill (GB), and Mori (GB), a listed-winning daughter of Frankel and Midday (GB).

Cheveley Park Stud’s Ulysses (Ire) will be paid the compliment of being sent Breeders’ Cup heroine Banks Hill (GB) (Danehill), while G1 Falmouth S. winner Timepiece (GB) (Zamindar) will visit Siyouni (Fr) at the Aga Khan Studs.
