Dual stakes-winning sprinter Kind (by Danehill) has produced six foals of whom four are stakes winners and five are stallions - a remarkable record.
The one filly among them is the speedy pattern-placed dual listed race winner Joyeuse (by Oasis Dream), whose own first foal is a Shamardal (by Giant's Causeway) filly who arrived last year.
That talented performer is a full-sister to the winning miler Morpheus, a Tally-Ho Stud stallion whose first foals made up to €46,000 in 2016, and her half-brothers include middle-distance Group 3 scorer Bullet Train (by Sadler's Wells), a US freshman of 2016 and sire of a late-season stakes winner from his first juveniles.
Kind's most famous son is, of course, the great Frankel (by Galileo), the undefeated Timeform 147-rated superstar now starting his fifth season at Banstead Manor Stud. His first crop made quite an impact with six pattern-winning juveniles headed by unbeaten Japanese champion Soul Stirring (dam by Monsun), who rounded off her season with victory in the Group 1 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies Stakes in November.
The other five are Group 2 Lowther Stakes winner Queen Kindly (dam by Rahy) and Group 3 scorers Fair Eva (dam by Observatory), Frankuus (dam by Linamix), Mi Suerte (dam by Pulpit), and Toulifaut (dam by Darshaan).
Frankel's triple Group 1-winning full-brother Noble Mission stands at Lane's End Farm in Kentucky and will have his first yearlings on offer this summer and autumn, while the sixth foal of Kind, another son of Galileo (by Sadler's Wells), is Mickley Stud's new stallion Proconsul.
He is the only chestnut among the siblings, he was trained by Andre Fabre, but failed to make the frame in either of his two starts. His fee is advertised at £3,500; Frankel's fee is £125,000.
Kind's star sons are very closely related to her dual 10-furlong Group/Grade 1-winning half-brother Powerscourt (by Sadler's Wells), the sire of US Grade 1 star and new California-based stallion Finnegan's Wake.
She is also a sibling of Group 2 Ribblesdale Stakes winner and dual US Grade 2 scorer Riposte (by Dansili) and to the Group 1-placed pattern winner Last Train (by Rail Link), and her dam is the Group 3 Lancashire Oaks victress Rainbow Lake (by Rainbow Quest).
Proconsul was bred to achieve stardom on the track, and although he fell some way short in that endeavour, his pedigree could see him produce some notable results at stud.
