Holy Crap.

With a full book, Frankel could rake in $19,000,000 in stud fees in 2013 alone

In Japan, most stud fees are listed as private, but considering the purses there, I think it is safe to say that there are at least 2-4 that would stand for the equivalent of six figures.

So, as a freshman stallion, he is going to be amongst the highest priced stallions in the world. Every other horse listed has a proven track record of siring winners aplenty, but despite his first year status, Frankel will still have no issues filling a book of around 100 mares, I'm sure. And that number will probably not be limited by interest, but instead by the selection criteria of his connections.

Best of luck, that's some very, very high expectations placed on an unproven sire.
