Kingman's first book includes dam of Frankel


Elite broodmare Kind, dam of champions Frankel and Noble Mission, will be among the mares in reigning Cartier European Horse of the Year Kingman's first book in 2015, Juddmonte Farm, which bred and owns both horses, announced Friday.

Kind, a 14-year-old Danehill mare, was a stakes winner and Group 3 placed during her own racing career. She is the dam of five winners from as many starters, led by unbeaten two-time European Horse of the Year Frankel and last year's Cartier Award champion older male Noble Mission. Kind also produced Group 3 winner Bullet Train and Group 3 placed Joyeuse.

The other Grade/Group 1 winners or producers in Kingman’s book include Juddmonte’s Etoile Montante. The French Group 1 winner came to the U.S. to become a multiple graded stakes winner, and is now the dam of graded stakes winner Starformer.

Kingman, a 4-year-old son of Invincible Spirit, is standing his first season Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud near Newmarket, England, after a career in which he won seven of eight starts, earning $1,607,201 in U.S. funds. His Horse of the Year campaign included Group 1 scores in the Irish 2000 Guineas, St. James’s Palace, Sussex, and Prix Jacques Le Marois. In his only loss he finished second in the English 2000 Guineas.

Kingman is out of French classic winner Zenda, a half sister to champion and sire Oasis Dream.
