Frankel (pictured right) finished his dazzling career unbeaten by winning the Champions Stakes at Ascot, England, on Saturday for a 14th straight victory, cementing his status as one of the greatest racehorses. Setting off as a 2-11 favorite in front of Queen Elizabeth II and 32,000 spectators, the world’s top-ranked horse coped well with the soft going to come home with a length and three-quarters to spare ahead of 2011 winner Cirrus Des Aigles (9-2). The 4-year-old colt was slow out of the starting blocks but quickly recovered under jockey Tom Queally. The winning check of $1.19 million takes Frankel’s earnings to $4.85 million. After soaking up the applause from his adoring public, Frankel will now lead a life as a stallion. – Associated Press
