On just his second start, Frankel’s Kiss destroyed the competition at Klampenborg on Saturday.  In the closing stages he pulled away from the field in commanding fashion to win by nearly ten lengths.  He may be aimed at the G3 Stockholm Cup for his next start.

A €770,000 purchase by Avenue Bloodstock from the Arqana May 2yo Breeze-Up Sale.  Frankel’s Kiss is a half-brother to G1 winner BACKSEAT RHYTHM.  His dam is G3-placed winner Kiss A Miss and he is from the family of G1 winner and sire, CONNECT.  He has a yearling half-sister by Birchwood that is catalogued for the upcoming Arqana Deauville Select Sale.

Congratulations to his owners ScanVet Stallions, trainer Flemming Velin and jockey Martin Rodriguez.
