F can only be given to this horse. Quite possibly the greatest horse that has lived? Most certainly the best I have ever seen in my lifetime. The 2000 Guineas last year left me simply speechless. I had witnessed something truely amazing, a performance so stunning and majestic. A run that said with all the arrogance in the world – “Here I am, can you catch me”.

They are all still trying!

This will most definitely be his final season in training, so enjoy every race as much as you can. It’s not often we get to see one of the all time greats, and this fella most surely is. The image of Frankel in full flow, bounding and covering so much distance with each stride gives me goose bumps every time – here’s the performance for you all to enjoy! All hail Frankel!
