  1. Of course Frankel is one of the all time greats, but the question mark for me lies in the fact he wasn't tested enough. He never raced a Derby, St Leger or Arc and was never raced outside England. He was in his comfort zone, hence for me Frankel can't be ranked above the likes of Nijinsky or Sea Bird, though he was great.

  2. I'm sick to death of over hyped horses. The fact is Frankel is one of the greatest horses we've ever seen, but if you listen to the presenters of today, most of whom have never before seen a truly great horse, you'd think he was Pegasus reincarnated. What has he actually beat here? the only half decent horse was excelebration and he obviously did not perform to his best, although I accept that that might have been due to trying to stay with Frankel. Personally I'm certain Brigadier Gereard was a better miler, and in defence of our American friends, what Secretariat did was three times more impressive. My only problem with that, is that Secretariat probably had more drugs inside him than Boots the chemist.

  3. On a weekend when Galileo`s grandsons finish first and second in one of Europe`s premier classics; the 2,000 Guineas and his three daughters finish first, second and third in the female equivalent ;the 1,000 Guineas ,Gardiner and his dopey friend Mr Wth 74 are talking about some Oz gelding who won a race in Hong Kong.The level of their ignorance is truly breath taking !Galileo`s achievement this past weekend is truly ground breaking and they are consumed by their own mediocrity ! Then on Sunday, his daughter ; Found wins the Group Three in Ireland despite having to cope with unsuitable ground and is immediately made favourite for the Arc – Europe`s favourite race!All these wonderful horses by Galileo but there is still only one who deserves the title "HIS MAJESTY" and that is ……………..FRANKEL !!!!!!

  4. The following list is the sons and daughters of the legendary stallion ; GALILEO that super trainer ; Aidan O`Brien has at his disposal for this current  season……………….BONDI BEACH, BRAVERY , FLUFF, FOUND, HIGHLAND REEL, KINGFISHER, ORDER OF ST GEORGE, ALICE SPRINGS, BALLYDOYLE, BEACON ROCK, BEST IN THE WORLD, BHUTAN, BLACK SEA, CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI, COLE PORTER, COOLMORE, CROCODILE SHOES, DEAUVILLE, HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, IDAHO, JOHANNES VERMEER, KELLSTORM, MINDING, KING OF MAGIC, LIKE A STAR, LONDON, MONARCH, PIETRO TESTA, PORT DOUGLAS, SAN FRANCISCO, SEAN O`CASEY, SEVENTH HEAVEN, SUCCESSOR, SWORD FIGHTER, THE GURKHA, THE MAJOR GENERAL, UNICORN and of course ………wonderful  US ARMY RANGER ! Hopefully one or two of these will be spanking arse at Breeders Cup or Flemington this year ! I read it yesterday but could not believe it ! Hope you find it interesting !

  5. The joy at which Frankel seems to run with is like watching a child bound through a meadow with total freedom. I've never seen a horse run like it really WANTS to win the race, it's head going up and down like a piston. Sensational.
