Frankel Toys With Overmatched Sussex Rivals

10 September 25: Frankel (no. 2), ridden by Tom Queally and trained by H. R. A. Cecil, wins the Royal Lodge Stakes for two year olds at Ascot Racecourse in Ascot, England. (Bob Mayberger/Eclipse Sportswire)
FRANKEL again showed just why he is the best racehorse in the world with another dominating, dismissive, destructive performance to make it 12 wins from 12 in the Sussex Stakes.

Trained by Sir Henry Cecil for Khalid Abdullah, victory had been thoroughly expected as the wonderhorse was sent off 1-20 favourite and he delivered with contemptuous ease finishing well clear of Farhh in second and Gabrial third.

Frankel's big brother Bullet Train jumped into the lead from the stalls with his younger sibling tucked in behind and Frankie Dettori tracking the red-hot favourite in third on Farhh - it would be the closest the Godolphin runner got to the superstar.

Running around the turn Bullet Train continued in his role at the head of the pack and approaching the three-furlong marker Tom Queally, riding Frankel, went to the front and turned to give a long, lazy look behind him to check on the opposition.

Content that he was going as well as he thought, Queally turned back to focus on the winning post, letting Frankel rip and he produced his instant turn of speed to shoot clear.

No, if it were Frankel he would watch all the other races INSIDE. I was at two match races Frankel set up. First he challenged the best (at that time) sprinter at 2 furlongs versus a q-horse named Chirawiri. The latter was on top by 3 out of the gate and never loked back. Then about three months later he brought a good t-bred to Los Alamitos to race their best 870 yd runner in a match and he beat them too. Don't be with this guy was the lesson learned!
Robert (Bobby) Frankel has comeback as a horse and is just as dominate as a race horse as he was a trainer, "You go boy"
