Frankel's Brother Bullet Train Enters Stud in Kentucky

Bullet Train, a Group-winning, three-quarter brother to the sensational and undefeated Frankel, will enter stud in Kentucky in 2013 it was announced today.

 

A foal of 2007, Bullet Train is by the legendary sire-of-sires Sadler’s Wells, who is the sire of over 325 stakes winners with progeny earnings of over $166 million. Sadler's Wells is currently is the sire of the two leading world-wide sires in Galileo, the sire of Frankel, and Montjeu.

 

Bullet Train’s dam is the Danehill mare Kind, who has produced three group stakes winners, including Frankel, with her first three foals.

 

California-based bloodstock agent Bob Feld worked in conjunction with international agent Hubert Guy to broker the deal with Juddmonte Farms.

 

“Frankel has been heralded as, ‘the greatest ever,’ and it would be hard to dispute that,” said Feld, who is representing the stallion. “To offer a three-quarter brother to Frankel by Sadler's Wells to American breeders is very exciting.  It will be an outstanding opportunity to breed that same classic bloodline into American mares, at a stud fee considerably less than Frankel commands. That made it an easy decision to bring Bullet Train to Kentucky.”

 

“With his excellent speed, athleticism and outstanding pedigree, Bullet Train suits American racing," Feld noted. “The Juddmonte silks have graced the winners’ circle from coast to coast in many of our Grade 1 events and I am confident the sons and daughters of Bullet Train can carry on that great family tradition.”

 

Bullet Train is set to arrive in the States this week and stud plans should be finalized shortly thereafter.
