Frankel: The Wonder Horse

Frankel: The Wonder Horse

Model Number: 9781908216632

£15.00 GBP

Frankel.  The name is already burned in hold on racing’s roll of honour, and will continue to flow whenever the talk is of the greatest racehorses ever.

His record – fourteen victories from fourteen starts, including ten at the elite Group 1 level – speaks for itself.  But it is the manner in which Frankel blew away his rivals that will linger in racing’s folk memory: that afterburner whoosh of explosive power which in a matter of strides sent him lengths clear of his pursuers.

From his brilliant two-year-old career through the jaw-dropping 2011 2,000 Guineas to the irresistible force of 2012, Frankel in full flight was one of the great glories of racing history, and those who saw him run will never forget the sight.

Frankel: The Wonder Horse provides the perfect record of a stella career, but this is not only the story of a famous racehorse. It is also the remarkable take of the shy and retiring Prince Khalid Abdulla, who owned and bred the colt and knew from the beginning that this was a very special horse indeed: of Irish jockey Tom Queally, who had the incomparable experience of riding this astounding champion in all his races, and most of all, of how the exploits of Frankel confirmed trainer Sir Henry Cecil back at the summit of his profession after years when his career appeared to be in terminal decline.

Constructed form the reports, features and stunning photographs which chronicled the Frankel phenomenon in the pages of the Racing Post, this book tells the complete story of a true racing legend.
