Meeting up with the legend: Frankel

When we visited Newmarket’s Rowley Mile race course, Tori from their Marketing Department explained that we probably couldn’t imagine how important Frankel is for the British horseracing industry.

Since we became part of this industry, we have heard lots of appreciation for Frankel. Without a doubt, the superstars can definitely increase the charm of a sport and attraction to the public and, throughout the last few decades, Frankel is a true legend of this sport and one of the greatest racehorses of all time.

In 2008, Frankel was born in Newmarket, home of British horseracing and trained by Sir Henry Cecil. During his racing career, he recorded 14 wins and was never defeated. He won 10 G1 races, including the prestigious British 2000 Guineas which he won by 6 lengths. He retired as a stallion in 2013 and his offspring have already begun to show their ability on the race course.

Recently the Team UK along with Team Ireland went to Juddmonte’s Banstead Manor Stud in Newmarket and had close contact with the legendary Frankel.

This “star chasing” experience has been just one of our highlights in recent months, on the racecourses and studs in UK and Ireland, we have seen top-class stallions such as Dubawi, Galileo, Shamardal, Sea the Stars, Invincible Spirit, Golden Horn, and many more. As for top-class racehorses, we have met Postponed, Minding and Harzand. As DITI trainees in Godolphin, we are lucky and grateful to meet these highest-level athletes.
