Kind, dam of racing ledged Frankle, has died on the 8th March 2021, aged 20, following complications 6 days after foaling a colt by Kingman.
Kind was a second generation Juddmonte homebred. Juddmonte is the international thoroughbred horse racing and breeding enterprise founded in 1980 by the late Prince Khalid bin Abdullah. She won six of her 13 starts on the Flat, including the Flower of Scotland and Kilvington Stakes, before retiring to stud in 2005.
Kind will be remembered for breeding some of the best thoroughbred racehorses in the world. These include, the unbeaten superstar Frankel and Group One winner Noble Mission. Her daughter, Joyeuse, and granddaughters Jubiloso and Jovial will continue her breeding legacy, while her three-year-old Galileo filly, Chiasma, is currently in training with John Gosden. Kind’s legacy as a broodmare, producing two Group One winners, Frankel and Noble Mission, plus a further Group winner, Bullet Train, means her name is on the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities’ list of protected names.
Juddmonte’s UK stud director, Simon Mockridge has said “I cannot thank the Rossdales and Juddmonte team enough for the tireless care they have given Kind. To many she will rightfully always be best remembered as the dam of Frankel and Noble Mission, to us at Juddmonte she will always be Kind by name and Kind by nature.”
