Frankel Filly For More Joyous

Monday, 4th August 2014

Multiple Gr1 winner More Joyous  (More Than Ready-Sunday Joy, by Sunday Silence) gave birth to a filly foal by unbeaten world champion Frankel on Friday, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. The new arrival is believed to be the first foal from Frankel's southern-hemisphere covers. More Joyous is one of two mares sent by prominent Australian owner-breeder John Singleton to be covered by Frankel to southern-hemisphere time last year. The other was dual Gr2 winner More Strawberries (More Than Ready), who is due to foal in September. The More Joyous filly would obviously be expected to fetch a huge price if offered at auction, but Singleton has reportedly said he will not sell. Trained by Gai Waterhouse, More Joyous won 8 races at Gr1 level including the prestigious Doncaster Handicap (1600m) and two renewals of the Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m).
