Frankel Given Official Rating Of 140
The official British Horseracing Authority rating of Prince Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farm home-bred unbeaten 4YO entire Frankel (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) "has risen by two pounds to 140 following his breathtaking 11-lengths victory in the UK Gr1 Queen Anne Stakes (8 furlongs) at Royal Ascot on Tuesday" reported racenewsonline.com. "It makes him officially the best since another Abdulla-owned horse Dancing Brave in 1986, who ended his career with a rating of 141." BHA mile handicapper Dominic Gardiner-Hill commented: "Frankel's win in the Queen Anne was one of the most visually stunning I have seen in my time as a handicapper."
