Undefeated Frankel Set to Race On


 Not only were the reports of Frankel's racing career's demise more than premature, the living-legend son of Galileo is set to return to the track this weekend in preparation for his seasonal debut. Rumors had circulated like wildfire shortly after the Grand National that Frankel had been officially retired by his connections. Thankfully, Lord Grimthorpe was on the premises at Aintree and he doused water on the Frankel's finished flames.


A scan on Wednesday revealed that the superstar colt has not sustained anything more than the original “superficial” status that his injury was originally labelled with.

Conditioner Sir Henry Cecil spoke to the media on Wednesday and declared, “He was scanned this morning - very thoroughly - and everything with his sheath and his tendon is fine. I've had him walking and trotting and everything seems to have settled down. We'll resume work and feel our way.”

Prior to the injury scare, Frankel had been pointed towards the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes at the one mile distance. Punters will have their eyes firmly-fixed on the latest news and information coming out of Frankel's next few works.

Should Frankel not move towards the Lockinge, connections may get creative as keeping him on the shelf until Royal Ascot would likely see Frankel go backwards in his training. “I'd like to make Newbury if possiblebecause it's a long time with a horse like that to hang around until Ascot. I'll feel my way but I'm hopeful. If I have to take him somewhere, I'll take him.”

Connection may opt to drop Frankel down to a much more winnable Group 2 event or they may look elsewhere – perhaps for a Group 1 in France or Ireland.

Frankel will be out cantering this weekend but is unlikely to make a proper racecourse gallop until next month.
