Frankel Wins UK Gr1 Sussex Stakes
At Goodwood overnight in the UK, former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Gr1 triumph when Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farm home-bred unbeaten 4YO entire Frankel (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) cruised to a 6-length victory for trainer Sir Henry Cecil over fellow 4YO entire Farhh (Pivotal-Gonbarda, by Lando) & 3YO colt Gabrial (Dark Angel-Guajira, by Mtoto) in the £316,500 Gr1 Sussex Stakes (8 furlongs). Winning this race for the 2nd year in succession, Frankel now remains undefeated in all 12 of his starts including 7 Gr1 victories in a row. His next assignment sees a step-up to the 10 furlongs of York's Gr1 Juddmonte International Stakes on August 22.
