Tom Queally has admitted that it will be a great loss to horse racing when Frankel is retired after the Champions Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.
Queally has been on board one of the best horses in the world in all 13 wins in his incredible career so far and is looking to end the partnership on a high with a 14th straight victory.
Frankel is the overwhelming favourites to win at Ascot this weekend, which is why many may be heading over to pubfruitmachines to make some money.
Queally has highlighted the job that trainer Sir Henry Cecil has done as well, and insists that Frankel’s success is a real team effort.
He said: “You can have a little bit of talent and the drive and will to succeed, but you need people to help you and be steered in the right direction.”
“At the end of the day, no matter how good or bad you are or whatever horses and opportunities you are given, you can’t beat experience.”
Cecil himself seems to be delighted with just how good the four-year-old is looking leading up to the race, and even suggested that this could be the best form that he has been in prior to an event – which when you consider just how impressive he has been, that is quite a statement.
“I could not be happier with him. He seems full of himself.” Said Cecil.
It seems that the only real concern at the moment is what the ground will be like on Saturday, which reports suggesting that the going will be soft, which could be a worry for those coming to see a speculator Frankel performance.
However, with the record breaking cult going up against just five other opponents in the Champions Stakes, it is extremely tough to look past him making it 14 wins from as many races.
It could be yet another enthralling and memorable day in the world of horse racing, don’t miss out on the action as what we are witnessing may never happen again.
