2023 European Mating Plans

Juddmonte is pleased to announce our 2023 mating plans.

Juddmonte will be utilising 33 European stallions in 2023, with Frankel and Kingman receiving books of mares befitting their status as two of the world’s leading stallions.

Frankel’s book includes 25 blacktype performers or producers, headed by Gr.1 winners Emollient (dam of Gr.2 winner Raclette), Emulous, Juliet Foxtrot, and Viadera; as well as Gr.1 producers Bird Flown (dam of Gr.1 winner and Classic winner Siskin), Nimble Thimble (dam of Gr.1 winner Quadrilateral) and Repose (dam of multiple Gr.1 winner State Of Rest). Gr.2 winners being covered include the Rockfel winner Isabella Giles, Arizona’s sister Nay Lady Nay, Sapphire Stakes winner Soffia; and Starformer (dam of stakes winner Flavius). Other stakes producers visiting the leading sire in Europe by prizemoney are Flare of Firelight (dam of Gimcrack and Champagne Stakes winner Threat) and Portodora (dam of Gr.2 winner and Gr.1 performer Set Piece).

Kingman was represented by four two-year-old Group winners in 2022 including Gr.1 winner Commissioning, the unbeaten Gimcrack Stakes winner Noble Style and Gr.3 winner/Gr.1-placed Nostrum, and his 2023 book of mares comprises some notable two-year-old winners/producers, including Gr.1 winner Passage Of Time (dam of Group winners Time Test and Tempus); Gr.1-winning sprinter African Rose (dam of Gr.3 winner Fair Eva); Gr.3 winner and Famous Name’s sister Big Break (the dam of Listed winner Georgeville); Gr.3 winner Helleborine (dam of Coventry Stakes winner Calyx) and Gr.3 winner Pocket Square. He will also be covering Gr.1 winners Proviso and Romantica as well as Gr.1 producer Scuffle (the dam of Logician), and dual Gr.2 producer Deliberate (dam of Headman).

One of Bated Breath’s best prospects for 2023 is the Gr.3-winning filly Juliet Sierra – and her dam Kilo Alpha will be returning to him this year. Incidentally, she produced the Gr.1 winner Juliet Foxtrot to Bated Breath’s sire Dansili. Other Juddmonte mares visiting Bated Breath in 2023 include Listed winner Pavlosk (herself the dam of Listed-winning two-year-old Zarinsk); Group-placed Straight Thinking (dam of Listed winner Straight Answer); and Group-placed Midweek (dam of promising 2022 two-year-old winner Halfway Line).

Juddmonte’s youngest stallion Expert Eye, the sire of 25 winners to date from his first crop, will be enjoying continued support in 2023, with Gr.1 winner Timepiece and the Group producer Photographic amongst his book.

Visiting one of the most proven active sires Oasis Dream, whose progeny have won over 2800 races - Listed winner Vesela, a half-sister to Oasis Dream’s top stallion son Showcasing, and Bonne Idee, a winning half-sister to the very promising Kingman colt Nostrum, are amongst his Juddmonte mares this season.

Juddmonte homebreds New Bay and Showcasing will be receiving several mares. Intercontinental’s daughter Continental Drift, the dam of Gr.3 winner/Gr.1-placed Masen will be visiting New Bay, along with Gr.3 winners Dandhu and Gaining. Showcasing’s book includes Group producer Lilyfire and dual Gr.2-winning Lucky Kristale.

Other notable matings are Logician’s winning half-sister Monsoon Moon visiting Baaeed; Group-winning Sacred Bridge visiting Dark Angel; Enable and her dam Concentric visiting Dubawi, along with Fillies’ Mile Winner Quadrilateral and Frankel’s sister Chiasma. Midday and her Listed-winning daughter Mori are both due to be covered by Lope De Vega, while Expert Eye’s dam Exemplify will be going to Mehmas. Frankel’s Listed-winning half-sister Joyeuse is to be covered by No Nay Never, while Gr.3-winning maiden mare Agave will go to Sea The Stars. The Listed-winning maidens Elegant Verse (a daughter of Special Duty) and Noon Star (a daughter of Midday) will be visiting Siyouni.
