- Frankel (Time.com)
"At this point, what else is there left to say about the wonder horse named Frankel? For the uninitiated, going into Saturday’s Champion Stakes at Ascot, just outside of London, the four-year-old colt had won all 13 of his races, a feat which simply defies belief."
"Since making his debut as a 2-year-old, in August 2010, Frankel has remained unbeaten, with his sheer speed – especially down the final stretch – simply beautiful to behold (he covers an incredible 22 feet with each stride, as well as having an unusally large heart). The following April, at the 2,000 Guineas Stakes at Newmarket in April 2011, he actually had a lead of a quite staggering 15 lengths at one point, before easing to the line six lengths clear. No wonder Frankel has been called the –ahem — Usain Colt of horseracing, for that’s exactly the way the Jamaican sprinter has dealt with his competition (for what it’s worth, Frankel can cover 100 meters in 5.2 seconds)." 10-12
