It is always the killer acceleration at the 2 furlong pole that does the opposition. He accelerates by lengthening and he can maintain the gallop. Those long strides like Usain Bolt. Nelly is the same of course. Before the race they compared some other "greats" and there were no others that had that long stride. In fact some were quite scratchy movers. Montjeu and Mill Reef for instance were quick striders.  I don't think he has gone left-handed before either, but he is so beautifully balanced it makes no difference to him.

I loved the way the announcer called Frankel, "This agent of destruction." It was a privilege to watch the race.

Interesting info I found posted on Frankel...

Undefeated racehorse Frankel extended his record to 13 races yesterday by winning the Juddmonte International at York. Frankel is rated the best racehorse in the world, and also has a funny relationship with the number 13. His first race (and win) was on Friday the 13th, his biggest winning margin is 13 lengths, and now he has 13 consecutive wins to his name! He certainly doesn't have triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13). [Frankel Wins Juddemonte International]
