Frankel Keeps Unbeaten Record With Victory at Royal Ascot Racing

Frankel Keeps Unbeaten Record

Frankel, the world’s top-ranked horse, maintained his unbeaten record with an 11th consecutive victory today, winning the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The four-year-old, ridden by Tom Queally and trained by Henry Cecil, was long odds-on at 1-10, meaning a successful 10-pound bet yielded only one-pound profit.

Frankel moved into the lead three furlongs from the finish and left his rivals trailing to win by 11 lengths. Excelebration was second at 5-1 and Side Glance third at 33-1.

The winning prize for the straight-mile event, the first race at the meeting, was 198,000 pounds ($310,000). Frankel, rated No. 1 in the World Thoroughbred Rankings, had already won three times at Ascot.

The five-day Royal Ascot meeting, in Berkshire west of London, is Britain’s richest race meeting, with prize money of 4.5 million pounds.

Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrates her Diamond Jubilee this year, is attending as usual and took part in a royal procession at the start of today’s proceedings.
