Frankel is now Europe’s most expensive stallion, with the glittering stallion’s fee having been raised to £275,000 after Juddmonte released his star list for 2023.

The son of Galileo, who was worth £200,000 this year, was a double world champion on the track and transferred his genius to stud, being crowned champion of England and Ireland and champion of Europe last season.

He looks set to successfully defend his European bull title for 2022 after triumphs in France that included Alpinista in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, and Nashwa in the Prix de Diane.

frankel has spawned nine individual Group 1 winners this year and 12 over the past two years, including five Classic winners.

Other top performers this term include runaway Irish Derby hero Westover, Coronation Stakes and Prix Jacques le Marois Inspiral winner, Dewhurst Stakes winner Chaldean, Irish Homeless 1,000 Guineas heroine Songs and the winner of the Paris Grand Prix Onesto.

The 14-year-old was also in high demand in the ring as the sire of the four most expensive yearlings in Book 1 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, including the world’s most expensive yearling sold in 2022 at 2 800,000 gns.

Juddmonte’s list also includes king manresponsible this year for unbeaten Fillies’ Mile Commissioning and Prix de la Forêt winner and British Champions Sprint Stakes winner Kinross, as well as unbeaten Gimcrack Stakes winner Noble Style and Group 1 ranked juveniles Nostrum and Epictetus.

His fees have been reduced to £125,000 from £150,000 in 2022.

Dream Oasis will continue to represent £20,000 after another excellent season which saw his 2021 European two-year-old champion Native Trail clinch the Irish 2,000 Guineas after a close second in the English equivalent.

As Europe’s leading Group 1 speed sire, he has sired over 220 racehorses, including winners of 30 Group 1 races.

As a broodmare, Oasis Dream is responsible for over 150 black-type performers, with 45 of his daughters having produced group winners.

Holding her breath is another whose fee is unchanged, this time at £15,000. The son of former Banstead Manor Stud stalwart Dansili has been marketed as Britain’s top bull by black type artists for the past three years among stallions worth under £25,000.

His Dick Poole Stakes winner Juliet Sierra was one of nine black type performers for her father in 2022 and is entered for a tilt at the 1000 Guineas in May.

His 2022 yearlings and foals are some of his strongest mare books to date and that was reflected in their sales ring, where the lead act was an Always A Dream filly who made 600,000 gns to Godolphin at Tattersalls Book 1.

Six others sold for six figures, producing an average of £65,043 and at more than six times their cover charge.

Banstead Manor’s roster is rounded out by the promising bull of the first season expert eyewhich has been reduced to £7,500 from £10,000 this quarter.

The Acclamation son sired 21 individual winners in his first generation, with a 64% success rate of his winning or placed riders.
