Frankel Equals Highest-Ever Racing Post Rating

Monday, 17th October 2011

Frankel’s stunning 4-lengths victory over his older rivals in the Gr1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes “matched the highest Racing Post Rating on record” noted racingpost.com. A provisional RPR of 139+ “has been awarded to Frankel, matching Dubai Millennium's 2000 Gr1 Dubai World Cup romp as the highest recorded since RPRs began”. And on grass Frankel “is now out on his own, after surpassing the previous best of 138 achieved by both Daylami & Sea The Stars”. Saturday's wide-margin Gr1 success “left the impression there could be a bigger figure in Frankel's locker granted sufficiently strong competition & pace. If he proves as effective at 10 furlongs next year, as trainer Sir Henry Cecil believes, he could be setting new benchmarks given the strength in depth in that division.”
