Frankincense is by a classic winner who is a classic sire with his first crop, out of a Redoute’s Choice half-sister to a Golden Slipper (gr. I) winner.

The sire, Makfi, is one of the most accomplished sons of Dubawi. One of the world’s leading sires, Dubawi has been represented by 20 stakes winners from just three Australian crops, among them the grade one winners Srikandi, Happy Archer, Secret Admirer, Tiger Rees, Willow Magic and Shamal Wind. Makfi, hero of the French 2,000 Guineas (gr. I), is also off to a bright start at stud, his first European crop including Make Believe, who followed his sire as a French 2,000 Guineas (gr. I) winner, and his first Southern Hemisphere crop being headed by grade one scorer Marky Mark.

Frankincense is out of the exceptionally well-bred three-time winner, Scent of Joy. A daughter of multiple Champion Sire, Redoute’s Choice, Scent of Joy is out of Polar Success, who defeated a field which included Exceed and Excel, Haliberry, Hasna, Shamekha, Legally Bay and Niello, to claim the Golden Slipper (gr. I). Scent of Joy is also three-quarters sister to the AJC Villiers Stakes (gr. II) second Parfumier, and half-sister to stakes winners Eau de Joie and Port Headland.

The second dam, the black-type placed Patou, is half-sister to Maid for Me, the dam of last year’s juvenile star, Bring Me the Maid, successful in the ATC Magic Night Stakes (gr. II) and Silver Shadow Stakes (gr. II), and third in the Golden Slipper (gr. I). Patou is also half-sister to Icecapade, the dam of the stakes winning and grade one placed Ain’t Seen Nothin’ and granddam of Champion Stepitup, of current graded stakes winner Bachman, and stakes winner Ain’tnofallenstar.

By a son of Dubawi out of a Danehill line mare mare, Frankincense is a produced of a cross that is already responsible for four stakes winners, including group one winner Akeed Mofeed, and Australian group winner Catkins.
