Frankel looks a once in a lifetime horse.

Won again today to make it 8 wins from 8.

Will he ever emulate Brigadier Gerard though?

It was a pretty special performance.

There doesn't really look to be a limit on Frankel's ability.

He destroyed Canford Cliffs in three strides.   I have only ever seen two other horses with that level of acceleration - Dancing Brave and Sea Bird II.   Shergar may have been on a par but we shall never know.

Dubai Millenium? Dettori reckons he was the best he has ridden.

I never saw Dubai Millenium Bald Eagle.   I saw Dancing Brave, Sea Bird II and Shergar in the flesh.   Those who saw Dubai Millenium confirm Dettori's opinion of him.   So You Think looks an awesome beast of a horse and his demolition of Workforce may see him on the road to a pinnacle of all time greats.

I saw the legendary Ribot but I was still a callow youth and it did not really sink in what I was seeing.

Frankie had the bookies trembling with fear at Ascot again today after winning the first four races including the gold cup. In the fifth he just got pipped into second, a great days racing that got the crowd buzzing.
