Frankel 2YO Horse Betting Odds Revealed

A few readers may be aware that I submit articles to Frankel Blog. It's a relatively new platform but has over 100 posts. It is dedicated to Frankel's two-year-old (2yos) offspring racing in the UK. 

By all accounts, it has been well received and featured highly on Google if searching for many and varied keywords. 

Anyway, I'm sure you have noticed that Frankel's offspring have been in flying form this season.

So I thought I would take a quick look at the 2019 Frankel colts and fillies and see what prices they started on debut and how they fared. 

It should make interesting reading.

Alpinista (Sir Mark Prescott) 9/4 1st 

Lisbet (John Gosden) 12/1 7th 

Shammah (Richard Hannon) 6/1 3rd

Dollar Bid (Sir Michael Stoute) 11/1 4th 

Highest Ground (Sir Michael Stoute) 3/1 1st

Far Rockaway (William Haggas) 11/1 5th 

Fred (Mark Johnston) 11/4 8th 

Herman Hesse (John Gosden) 3/1 6th

Born A King (William Haggas) 11/4 4th 

Frankel's Storm (Mark Johnston) 4/1 7th 

Heaven Forfend (Sir Michael Stoute) 7/2 2nd 

Frankly Darling (William Haggas) 7/2 2nd 

Jacksonian (Ralph Beckett) 4/1 2nd 

Boss Power (Sir Michael Stoute) 7/1 4th 

Unresolved (Mark Johnston) 9/2 8th 

So what can we tell from these 15 random Frankel two-year-olds of 2019?  This is very much a sample of perhaps 50 or so juveniles we could have viewed. 

The two debut winners were priced 9/4 and 3/1 respectively. The biggest price from this sample was 12/1 (finished 7th). Six of the debutantes were winners or placed. The largest odds of those Shammah 6/1 in third, trained by Richard Hannon. 

Without question, the best performer of the Frankel 2yos for 2019 was Roger Charlton's Quadrilateral. This chestnut daughter of Frankel by the mare Nimble Fingers won on debut, impressively on her second start before knuckling down to beat Powerful Breeze in the bet365 Fillies' Mile (Group 1) at Newmarket and favourite for the 1,000 Guineas in May 2020. 

In all, Frankel's offspring for 2019 performed admirably and much to look forward to come the new Flat turf season.
