Over the holiday weekend, I’m counting down my top 5 desert island races. You can view #5 here.
#4 takes us across the Atlantic to watch the amazing Frankel in the 2012 Juddmonte Stakes. His owners had waited for a promising foal to give the name of the late, great Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel, but no one could of known that he would be this amazing. Some questions whether he could get the distance going into this race. He answered them emphatically. Known for extremely high class, an always-immediate response, variable style, and, as we see in this race, stamina up to 10 furlongs. Timeform rated him a 147, their highest rating ever.
