Tours to see unbeaten champion racehorse Frankel have raised thousands of pounds for a children’s hospice chosen by the late Sir Henry Cecil.
Six tours were held at Banstead Manor Stud, where the Newmarket-trained stallion now resides, over the summer, raising nearly £3,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The charity was handpicked by Frankel’s trainer Sir Henry, for whom a memorial service was held on Monday after the Warren Place handler died in June at the age of 70 following a long battle with cancer.
EACH also received nearly £4,500 generated from the sales of official Frankel merchandise and donations made for official Frankel DVDs by Juddmonte Farms clients.
Karen Newton, EACH fundraiser, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the support we have received from Juddmonte Farms and incredibly grateful to all the team and especially the late Sir Henry Cecil for nominating EACH.”

Frankel retired from racing in October 2012 after claiming 14 consecutive victories for owner Prince Khalid Abdullah – earning him the title of the best racehorse in history.
EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the East of England.
