Sussex Stakes


What the Nation is saying about the Sussex Stakes...

Declaration of War came, he saw and he conquered in accounting for his five rivals with the utmost ease to win going away in the Group 1 Juddmonte International at York. Read More
  • ILuvTurfRacing · If Coolmore run Declaration of War in the BC Classic I think it gives them the best chance of winning the race they've had when the venue has been held on conventional dirt since Giant's Causeway in 2000. DOW's pedigree suggest he should go well on dirt, and I'm convinced 10f suits this horse even better than a mile does. I would like DOW chances of beating the horses lining up for the BC Classic over trying to beat Wise Dan in the BC Mile. JMO. · 243 days ago ·

For anyone interested in European racing, a Youtuber espmadrid - https://www.youtube.com/user/espmadrid - has added videos of the Sussex Stakes from 1979-1998, I have added the ones I could to HRN, but they are pretty spectacular!
They came, they saw, but they could not conquer. In his final start, Animal Kingdom would regretfully be unable to return the Queen Anne Stakes to foreign shores.Read More

  • DeadHeat · He is a monster of a racehorse. I don't think he'll have any probelm with 10f since he has learned to relax. His ability is well above any other horse currently racing. I only wish that SYT was still around, so that we could have seen them match up. · 626 days ago ·

THE wait to see Usain Bolt at London 2012 continues but an even quicker athlete will hit the track at Glorious Goodwood on Wednesday when the fearsome Frankel returns to action.

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. Read More
  • forego139 · 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" · 630 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · 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! · 630 days ago ·
Another stroll for Frankel? Maybe. A reminder from Racing Post: Eclipse runner-up Farhh is the second highest rated in the race but is a whopping 18lb behind Frankel on 122 which over the Sussex Stakes distance of a mile equates to about nine or ten lengths. Bullet Train goes into the race 29lb behind his stable companion on 111 and Richard Fahey's three year old Gabrial is 32lb adrift on 108.

FRANKEL was hailed as one of the all-time greats by his legendary trainer Sir Henry Cecil after he stretched his unbeaten record to eight when he dismissed Canford Cliffs in devastating fashion in Goodwood's much-vaunted Duel on the Downs.Read More

  • medlocke · Every time I watch the replay of the Sussex Stakes, I shake my head in disbelief!! The burst of speed that Frankel uncorked at Goodwood today was unbelievable. Anyone who's followed Canford Cliffs know's that the turn of foot that he has isn't chopped liver by any means. But when you can create a burst of speed that leaves a horse like Canford Cliffs for dead, then you're truly in a league of your own. At a mile, anyway. · 1001 days ago ·

  • medlocke · Without a doubt, Frankel's a special horse with freakish ability. He's made some very good looking 3yr.old's look very ordinary so far in his career. That said, I don't think there's a better turf miler in racing right now than Canford Cliffs. I think Frankel being the favorite in the Sussex Stakes stems in large part from him having to give Frankel 9lbs. in the race. But Canford Cliffs is a big bull of a horse himself, with an incredible turn of foot. It's no accident that he beat Goldikova in this year's Queen Anne Stakes, and it's also no accident that he's won 5 straight major G1 races at a mile on turf. Frankel's great. But he's yet to face a horse with the speed and tactical ability that Canford Cliffs possesses. My $$ says that Canford Cliffs repeats as Sussex Stakes champion again this year!! But it should be a fantastic race!! · 1007 days ago ·

  • horsisars · Real tough call.. arguments for both.. Can he beat the big boys? Canford Cliffs is tough... so tough. I have not seen the rest of the field. I will take... hmmmmm it s close, but I hope Frankel keeps the unbeaten streak alive... I would not bet my house on it.. but that is my choice. Good luck to both horses. · 1014 days ago ·
  • medlocke · For the record, I think Frankel is an incredible horse!! Very freakish in nature, and he makes some of the other very talented 3yr.old's in Europe look very ordinary. That said, among those 3yr.old's, I don't believe that Frankel has faced a horse with anywhere near the level of speed and tactical ability that Canford Cliffs has. It's no accident that Canford Cliffs beat Goldikova in this year's Queen Anne Stakes, and it's also no accident that Canford Cliffs has reeled off 5 straight major G1 win's at a mile on turf. He'll be very hard for Frankel to try and beat in the Sussex Stakes, IMO. · 1010 days ago ·
