How wonderhorse Frankel can earn more than £100MILLION without setting hoof on track as stud fee revealed at £175k
WONDERHORSE Frankel is all but certain to earn more than £100MILLION – without even stepping hoof on a racetrack.
The legendary stallion won 14 of 14 races during his career and pocketed for his owners almost £3m in prize money.
But that figure is totally dwarfed thanks to his second career as, for want of a better term, a male escort.

When a successful horse is 'put to stud' – they breed with other horses in the hope of producing equally successful offspring.
Frankel, who was trained by the late Henry Cecil, recently had his stud fee for 2021 confirmed by breeding colossus Juddmonte.
The farm, owned by billionaire Prince Khalid bin Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, charge £175,000 a go for Frankel to mate with a female horse.
Frankel retired in 2012 and began standing at stud in Banstead Manor in Suffolk on Valentine's Day 2013.
Even then his fee was £125,000 a pop.
In his first season as a stallion he covered 133 mares, netting an awesome £16.6m.
Frankel is expected to mate with around 100 mares a year.
Doing so at his current fee would bring in a whopping £17.5m.
Using that rough figure for the eight years of breeding he has had, we can say Frankel is almost certain to have hit the £100m mark.
And he will in all likelihood crash through that figure, with his £175,000 fee being in place since 2018.
As expected, Frankel's progeny are far from flops.
This year alone he was represented by two Group 1 winners – Group 1 are the best races – in the shape of Mozu Ascot and Mirage Dancer.
Despite these simply amazing figures, Frankel still falls some way behind his dad in the big-money ranks.
Galileo is worth around £180m – more than the current transfer market value of footballing superstars Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar, according to figures on Transfermarkt.
Since his retirement, he has become the go-to stallion for breeders wanting a slice of the very best.
In 2008 he became number one in the world and he's held that title every year since, apart from in 2009.
