First foal for Frankel Stallion Eminent

Media Release - Tuesday August 11

Brighthill Farm stallion Eminent has welcomed his first foal with the birth of a colt out of High Chaparral mare Rose Meer at Cambridge Stud on Saturday.

“I went to Cambridge Stud and couldn’t be happier with him,” Brighthill Farm principal Nick King said.

“He is a smart, strong correct colt with a lovely head and a bit of presence about him. It’s certainly exciting to have the first foal on the ground safely and leaving a good impression.”

Before retiring to stud, Eminent won three of his 14 career starts, including the Gr.2 Prix Guilaume d’Ornano (2000m), Gr.3 Craven Stakes (1600m), and was placed in the Gr.1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and Gr.1 Irish Champion Stakes (2000m).

Eminent is the only son of Frankel at stud in Australasia and the high class spring three-year-old from Europe bred a quality book of 114 mares last season and is proving popular again this season at a fee of $7500+gst.
