Frankel stud fee set at £125,000

UNBEATEN racehorse Frankel’s owners will charge a stud fee of £125,000 per time when he begins breeding duties next year. The four-year-old, who won his 14th and final race in the Champions Stakes at Ascot last month before retiring, will breed on a no-foal, no-fee basis. Philip Mitchell, manager of Prince Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms, said: “The fee for Frankel reflects his merits as being perhaps the greatest racehorse we have ever witnessed.”
