Midday has taken to motherhood exceptionally well

Midday foals; will visit Frankel in 2013

Six-time Group 1 winner foals a colt 
at 12 noon

Juddmonte has welcomed the arrival of the first foal out of Midday, and has announced that the six-time Group 1 winning mare will form part of Frankel's stellar first book of mares for 2013.

The colt is by Frankel's sire Galileo, and has been described by Stud Manager Simon Mockridge as “Strong and muscular, an excellent first foal”. It was born at Banstead Manor Stud on 16th January – unusually, although perhaps aptly given his dam’s name, at just before 12 noon!

Philip Mitchell, the General Manager of Juddmonte Farms, reports: “Midday has taken to motherhood exceptionally well and we are delighted with her foal. She will visit Frankel in 2013 and obviously the resultant progeny will have huge potential."
