Frankel’s stud fee rockets to £275,000 – the most expensive in the world – with owners set to earn up to £1m a DAY

SUPERSTAR stallion Frankel’s stud fee has rocketed to £275,000 – the most expensive in the world.

The unbeaten thoroughbred could earn owners Juddmonte up to £1million a DAY at stud as rivals desperate for the next big thing fight it out for a piece of the champ.

Frankel’s fee has risen from £200,000 a pop in 2022 to £275,000 next year on the back of another incredible season for his progeny.

His daughters Alpinista, Inspiral and Nashwa won the Arc de Triomphe, Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot and Prix De Diane respectively.

While among the boys Westover won the Irish Derby, Chaldean the Dewhurst and Onesto the Grand Prix de Paris.

Those top tier Group 1 wins were just the icing on the cake and confirmed his brilliance in producing winners since first going to stud in 2013.

Mares the world over will be put forward to be covered by the highest-rated horse ever – but it won’t come cheap.

Frankel could cover as many as four mares a day, earning his owners £1.1m for a few minutes’ work.

For now, he usurps rival Dubawi as the world’s most expensive stallion, although that could change when their 2023 fees are announced.

Dubawi, owned by the ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed’s all-conquering Godolphin operation, charges £250,000 a go.

In all, Frankel sired nine Group 1 winners in 2022, more than any other stallion in the world.

A Juddmonte statement said: “His progeny have continually broken new boundaries both on the track and in the sales ring including the winners of the Irish Derby, French Oaks, Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Dewhurst Stakes in 2022.

“He is the sire of the four highest-priced yearlings at Tattersalls Book 1 headlined by the world’s highest-priced yearling sold in 2022 at £2.8m.

“His new fee reflects his standing as one of the world’s elite stallions.”
