THE best son of undefeated champion Frankel, Cracksman was also a world champion at both three and four years old, yet he has retired this year to Sheikh Mohammed’s Dalham Hall Stud at the very attractive fee of only £25,000, just one seventh of the cost of sending a mare to Frankel. Though Cracksman was not unbeaten, he won eight of his 11 starts, including four Group 1 events, and was second twice and third once in Group 1 races, for earnings of £2,793,063.
