Loved the video.  Thanks for the URL.  It was so nice to hear the commentators talk about Bobby Frankel and to hear them be as overwhelmed by Frankel's performance as we are.

Royal coronation...
What a thriller - he kinda reminds me of Barbaro or Slew with that aggressive dominating speed

If he's anything like those two, he might be able to carry his speed a whole lot further than they think.  That would be great.  I would love to see him in the Derby if there is any hope of him harnessing that speed for a mile and a half.

BRAVO, FRANKEL!!!

I confess almost total ignorance re English racing, but I am very fond of this horse because he was named for Bobby Frankel...
