Frankel, the horse, is a true superstar

July 27, 2011 | 10:13 am

The best horse in the world is unbeaten Frankel, a 3-year-old who won its eighth consecutive race on Wednesday, winning the Group I Sussex Stakes at one mile in England.

Named after Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel, Frankel has an incredible stride that separates him from most horses.

It would be wonderful if Frankel were shipped to America to compete in the Breeders' Cup in November, but that doesn't seem likely.

Meanwhile, just enjoy the video of a great race horse in action.
