Some interesting parallels relating to England’s new super horse, Frankel, who absolutely demolished his rivals in Saturday’s 2000 Guineas-G1 at Newmarket.
Rather than pontificate the merits of Frankel’s win, do yourself a favour and just watch the race below!
Owned by Khalid Abdullah, Frankel is named after the Champion US Trainer Bobby Frankel (left), who died from leukemia in November 2009: around nine months prior to his namesake’s debut in a maiden at Newmarket.
Bobby Frankel, who trained over 3600 winners – including five Breeders’ Cup winners – handled many of Khalid Abdullah’s horses when they crossed the Atlantic, including Eliza Park’s foundation stallion, Desert Sun.
Ironically, Desert Sun’s trainer Henry Cecil also puts the polish on Frankel and, sadly, is battling the same disease that claimed Bobby Frankel.
