Owners of mares from around the world have expressed their interest in buying the legendary racehorse Frankel.

The Prince Khalid Abdulla-owned colt was retired to stud after his 14th victory in a row on Saturday in the Champion Stakes at Royal Ascot.

"Interest in Frankel has been worldwide," Abdulla's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"People wanting to breed to the horse will send their mares' CVs in and [in addition] Prince Khalid will send his own best mares that suit."

Frankel earned almost £3m in prize money during his career and could start his new duties in February next year.
