Wow Frankel made the Wall Street Journal here

Sizing Up Europe's Superhorse Frankel

The Same Day I'll Have Another Conquered Pimlico, England's Frankel Won No. 10 in a Row


On Monday, the British Horseracing Authority made a statement. In case you missed it, it said the British horse Frankel, which won Saturday's Lockinge Stakes in Newbury, England, had achieved a numerical performance rating of 138.

Here's all you need to know about that number: It makes Frankel the greatest living racehorse in the world—and the best in at least 25 years.

Great piece!  The man behind the name and his namesake.  Many pics & videos as well as a great story.

THE NAMESAKE: FRANKEL

The colt was of royal pedigree, born on February 11, 2008 and it must have struck Prince Abdullah that the bay son of Galileo was a fitting vessel to carry the spirit of one whose accomplishments celebrated the thoroughbred and the sport.

From the first moment he set foot on the turf as a 2 year-old juvenile, Robert Frankel’s namesake would demonstrate how a legend becomes.
