Winsili To Visit Frankel

Monday, 10th February 2014

Juddmonte Farms-owned mare Winsili (Dansili-Winter Sunrise, by Pivotal), winner of last season's Gr1 Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, has been retired and will visit Frankel this season, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. Winsili hails from the well-established Juddmonte family of Gr2 Prix Greffulhe winner Ice Blue and Gr1 winners Polish Summer and Meteor Storm. Commenting on the mating, Juddmonte general manager Philip Mitchell said: "The mare is not over big and requires a horse who will give her both size and strength. As a daughter of Dansili her options are limited with our own stallions, but as a Gr1 winner she is deserving of Frankel, who offers the necessary physical requirements, plus soundness, and we hope the mating will get a smart staying two-year-old with Classic potential." Mitchell also confirmed that Kind (Danehill), the dam of Frankel, would be returning to Galileo this season for the sixth time.
