Dam Of Preakness Winner To Frankel
It's beginning to sound very much like a cracked record but the world's highest rated racehorse of all time, Frankel (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) has attracted yet another champion broodmare in his debut stud season with the announcement that 16YO, 2011 Kentucky broodmare of the year Oatsee (Unbridled-With Every Wish, by Lear Fan), will join the undefeated 10-time Gr1 winner's brood, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. Having just foaled a filly by triple Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & US Eclipse Award-winning stallion Bernardini (A.P.Indy-Cara Rafaela, by Quiet American) on Wednesday at Kentucky's Darby Dan Farm, Oatsee, dam of Preakness hero Shackleford, becomes another of "130 blue-chip mares" to be covered by Frankel in 2013. Oatsee's individual superlatives are courtesy of having produced 5 individual stakes winners, among them Gr3 winner Baghdaria (by Royal Academy), Gr1 Alabama Stakes winner Lady Joanne (by Orientate), Gr2 winner Afleeting Lady (by Afleet Alex), triple Gr1 winner Shackleford (by Forestry) & Listed winner Stephanoatsee (by A.P. Indy).
