Frankel foal sells for Irish record
- From the section Horse Racing
A filly foal of racing legend Frankel has sold for an Irish record of 1.8 million euro (about £1.45m).
The horse, a daughter of Finsceal Beo, was bought at Goffs sales by Dermot Farrington for an unnamed Irish client.
It is the highest amount paid for a foal at public auction in Ireland.
Frankel was retired in 2012 after winning all 14 of his races, while Finsceal Beo (which means 'Living Legend' in Gaelic) won the 1,000 Guineas in England and Ireland in 2007.
