Prince Khalid bin Abdullah
The Start Of A Special Era
Prince Khalid buys four yearlings at the Newmarket sales. All go on to be winners.
Charming Native, ridden by Lester Piggott, gives him his first winner at Windsor. Later that year, he has his first Group 1 success, via Known Fact in the Middle Park Stakes.
The name Juddmonte is first used in context of the Prince’s breeding operation. Studs in England, Ireland and America are acquired along the way. In the same year, Known Fact became his first Classic winner, when awarded the 2000 Guineas, and goes on to be his first stallion.
Buys Dancing Brave
Dancing Brave is purchased for $200,000 as a yearling. He goes on to scale great heights, being among the Prince’s six Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winners.
First Homebred Group 1 Winner
Warning becomes his first homebred Group 1 winner, with victory in the Sussex Stakes.
Juddmonte sponsors the Group 1 International Stakes for the first time.
First Classic Haul
Wince wins the 1000 Guineas and, in the process, completes the set of English Classics won by Juddmonte homebreds.
A first American Classic triumph. Flute, trained by Bobby Frankel, wins the Kentucky Oaks. Later that year, a first Breeders’ Cup win via Banks Hill.
Champion Owner in Britain for the first time. Oasis Dream, winner of the July Cup and Nunthorpe, is among his leading lights.
The Birth Of The Greatest
Frankel is born at Banstead Manor. He will go on to dazzle in all his 14 races, being hailed as the greatest thoroughbred there has ever been.
100th Classic Hombred
Noble Mission, brother of Frankel, becomes Juddmonte’s 100th Group 1 homebred winner.
Arrogate caps his short but wonderful career with victory in the Dubai World Cup.
Queen Of The Turf
Enable returns home to Banstead after a decorated career including the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and two renewals of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. She’s since had two foals, whose achievements will be known in years to come.
100th Grade Win
Viadera becomes Prince Khalid’s 100th Grade 1 winner in America.
