Juddmonte Farms is offering the chance for four people to visit Banstead Manor Stud, near Newmarket, to see Frankel, as well as having a professional photo taken with the world famous racehorse.

After visiting the Juddmonte stallions, the four winners will receive special Frankel gift bags and will be given premier badges for a Newmarket race day of their choice.

The Frankel lot will form part of the EACH online auction which will be hosted at thesaleroom.com from November 15-24. The auction has been organised by the EACH special events committee.

Another of the top lots in the auction is an 18ct white gold and ruby charm bracelet with Sudocrem pot to carry the tiniest amount of nappy cream commissioned to celebrate the birth of Prince George.

Frankel retired to stud last year as the unbeaten winner of 14 races including 10 Group 1 wins. In Lingerie, which is the first mare in foal to Frankel to be sold at public auction, went for a staggering $2.4 million in the USA earlier this month.

A series of Frankel tours, which were offered privately to Frankel fans this summer, raised funds for EACH – the charity chosen by Frankel’s trainer Sir Henry Cecil who died after a long battle with cancer in June this year.

As well as the money raised from the tours, EACH has also received to date almost £4,500 generated from the sales of official Frankel merchandise and donations made for official Frankel DVDs by Juddmonte clients.

The auction will have many more lots to suit different budgets, but more interesting items are needed and anyone who can help should contact Camilla Haycock, at camilla.haycock@each.org.uk or call 01473 276193.
