Fantastic farewell set for Frankel

Print Friendly

Racehorse Frankel is expected to end his career with a remarkable 14th straight win tomorrow in the Champion Stakes at Ascot. The four-year-old colt has been hailed as the greatest thoroughbred ever and will be put out to stud following his retirement.

“Frankel is the superstar of Flat racing, not simply unbeaten in 13 races, but untouchable,” says The Daily Telegraph. “In monetary terms his potential to sire future champions makes him the most valuable single sporting commodity on the planet. It is said £100 million would not buy him.”

His long stride and phenomenal lung capacity make him a champion and also give him the ability to accelerate twice during a race, explains the Telegraph.

This superhorse is trained by Newmarket Trainer, Sir Henry Cecil.  This unbeaten four-year-old, the world’s top-rated racehorse, will seek his 14th straight victory.

So now what Frankel?

From the world’s top-rated racehorse to the most exciting male escort around – things are about to change for Frankel.

The brilliant colt was retired to stud after his 14th consecutive victory on Saturday, in the Champion Stakes at Ascot.

While a life of getting intimate with the most sought-after females on the planet might sound like many young males’ ultimate fantasy, it is far from straightforward.

The four-year-old horse is likely to start his new duties in February 2013, and will command a fee of £100,000 or more each time.

With an expected annual roster of 100 mares, that could generate at least £10m every year and upwards of £100m during his lifetime.

Let’s hope it all works out according to plan for him!
