Frankel is, quite simply, the best horse I have ever seen or expect to see – and, I would argue, that applies to everyone else, too.
Frankel was remarkable; a truly magnificent racehorse. An exquisite mixture of power and poetry, he could make you look on in wonder, sometimes almost in disbelief, for he made extraordinary feats look easy. The manner of his 14-race winning streak puts him at the pinnacle of all undefeated champions, quite possibly within the 300 year history of racing thoroughbreds.
Frankel is to my mind the most outstanding racehorse on the flat, since I became hooked on the sport almost 60 years ago.
I have only seen three horses that could do things impossible for the rest of their species. Those special three are Secretariat, Arkle and Frankel.
