Smile for the camera!

Here's another shot of Midday and her new foal

Clearly the colt knows he is bred to be a superstar. His sire (like Frankel) is the great Galileo, whilst his dam Midday was a six-time Group 1 winner.

She was trained by Henry Cecil and won the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood three times, the Yorkshire Oaks at York, the Prix Vermeille at Longchamp in France and the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita in the USA, earning over £2.2 million in prize money.

Pictured with Midday and her foal are Ed Murrell (right) and Ben Justin (left) - the Stud Groom and Second Man respectively at Banstead Manor Stud.
