Retired British racehorse Frankel has topped Juddmonte's 2022 stallion roster with an eye-watering £200,000 stud fee.
Frankel is set for sire champion status, with the horse being the sire of 20 Group 1 winners over the past calendar year.
And his excellent track record hasn't gone unnoticed, with his stud fee rising from £175,000 to £200,000 as a result.
Juddmonte's other prize horse, Kingman, will keep the stud fee of £150,000.
A statement from Juddmonte said: "Frankel reached a historic milestone in 2021 when he became the fastest stallion to 50 group winners ever and achieved 20 Group 1 winners.
"This year has witnessed eight new Group 1 winners, including two Derby winners, an Oaks winner and three group 1-winning 2-year-olds.
"He currently has an incredible 11% group winners to runners and 15.5% black-type winners to runners.
"Standing £2 million ahead of his nearest rival on the European general sires list.
"Frankel is the champion sire-elect and tops the Great Britain and Irish lists, a feat not achieved by a British-based stallion since the great Mill Reef 34 years ago."
Frankel had his own impressive racing career in the early 2010s, and he boasts an incredible 14-0 record.
The thoroughbred has won at such flagship events such as the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot.
