    He also has an exciting 2YO called Kinross.

    My favourite York meeting was in 2012 for the sole reason of Frankel laying waste to all before him in the Juddmonte International. It left me wondering that we never got to the bottom of this magnificent horse.

    However, the meeting this year will stay long in the memory. For me, the highlight was seeing Mums Tipple obliterating his rivals in the UK Premier Yearling Stakes and shaving over a second off the Lowther Stakes. Superb performance! It’d be great to see Team Hannon go back to the good old glory days of Canford Cliffs, Toronado, Paco Boy, etc :-)

    Brings back memories of Thomas Chippendale. A very sad day. God bless him.

    I think Enable would beat Winx. But Enable vs Frankel? Oh dear! While Enable is possibly the best Flat filly/mare I’ve seen, Frankel would raze her.

    John McCririck was the life ‘n’ soul of Channel 4 Racing in the 80’s IMO. Never a dull moment whenever he was on the screen. Loved how he told off punters who were making faces behind him and how he relished a good steamer in the market. Won’t forget the moment he lost his hat in blustery weather.

    A one-off character who I feel, in an alternate world, would’ve made a great Doctor Who.

    Ventura Rebel. Should’ve stayed in the longer Coventry Stakes rather than go for the sharper Norfolk.

    It’d be great to see Team Hannon relive the glory days of Canford Cliffs and Toronado … and so it’s Threat for me.

    I had the pocket rocket in a double with If The Cap Fits :yahoo:

    Tiger Roll should have a constellation named after him. He’s one helluva stellar racehorse!

    It might be just me but while Sir Erec was being re-shod, there was a tender moment when the other horses walked away from him and he turned his head as if to say “Why are you leaving me alone?” At that instant, I had a bad feeling about the horse. It kinda felt like something was wrong and that he shouldn’t have ran.

    When he broke down mid-race, I felt sick. Destroyed my day.

    RIP Sir Erec … and what an angel!

    Largely agree with Gingertipster’s post.

    Frankel was brilliant to the eye but looked more lion than unicorn. Sprinter Sacre was truly magnificent in stature.

    Others who also deserve a hearty mention are Chief Singer and Celtic swing who looked like identical twins. Silvery Moon for his distinctive colouration. Altior for his pretty face with that striking diamond on his forehead.

    Nothing can live with Altior after he jumps the last fence.
