Midday Will Be Bred to Frankel

Juddmonte on Jan. 29 announced the arrival of the first foal out of 2009 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) winner Midday. The six-time group I-winning mare is booked to Frankel in 2013.

Midday's foal, a Galileo colt described by stud manager Simon Mockridge as "Strong and muscular, an excellent first foal," was born at Banstead Manor Stud Jan. 16—unusually, although perhaps aptly given his dam's name, at just before noon.

Bullet Train with some Stamina Mare would be interesting. I very curious to see what type of off spring Frankel produce. Like legends say...Great horses have a hard time to reproduce them self. The normally do it via their daughters.
Ambitious D. I have always wondered the same thing about Bullet Train. It would be an enormous irony. And Kay you are absolutely right about all of these great mares going to Frankel and the inbreeding issues. Also having such large crops of 120 plus foals only compounds the problem. Top breeders of the past limited their great sires foal crops for exactly this reason.
I agree Kay. He will quickly be diluted at this rate. I doubt Frankel will ever shuttle to other areas of the globe, but if he shows good promise as a sire, expect more breeders to send their mares to England. Its already happening now. Wouldn't it be ironic if Bullet Train (standing in Kentucky) turns out to be a better sire than his younger brother?
Frankel's problem will be being so closely related to so many of Britain/Ireland's top mares. They are going to have to do a lot of really close up inbreeding or look to mares from other countries.
Frankel get more action than a $2 hooker.
I don't think Frankel will be an incredible sire. He won't be bad, but he won't live up to the hype. Good luck to the owners of Midday and I hope they get a good one.
I Love Midday very much, and hope she has a very successful broodmare Career. Her Dam is also going to pay Frankel a visit. Love ya Midday!, and I wish nothing but the best for you.
