One of the greatest race horses to have ever graced this earth in Frankel celebrates his 11th birthday today and we are going to have a look into how good a race horse he actually was and what the superstar is doing now.

The Sir Henry Cecil trained horse had a wonderful career that saw him unbeaten in all 15 of his starts across various racecourses in the United Kingdom.

It all started back in August 2010 where the Price Khalid Abdullah owned horse was unleashed on a racecourse for the first time in a 12 runner strong field which was a maiden race at Newmarket.

He looked impressive, smart and even against what was a less inferior field to what he was known for running against but in second was Nathaniel who would also go on to be a smart Grade 1 winning hose.

He then went into a conditions stakes at Doncaster this time in a much smaller field and it could have been seen as less of a test than his debut and again when asked to go for home by Tom Queally he obliged and left the field for dead.

From there the then colt went into his first Graded contest at Ascot in the Grade 2 Royal Lodge Stakes and this race would really show the world if he was to be taken seriously, and he landed the spoils with ease.

As a progressive two year old his next logical step up was to go in to Group 1 company and at the first time of asking took the Dewhurst Stakes and from then on it was all about making history.

His next contest was a Grade 3 at Newbury in which he was far to good for and it was that race that showed the racing world that he could only be put into Grade 1 races because of how special he was.

This is exactly what he did and Sir Henry Cecil is known as one of the greatest trainers in the sport due to mainly the training performances he did with Frankel to get him as good as he was.

From 30th April at Newmarket in the 200 Guineas all the way to his last race in October 2012 at Ascot in the British Champion Stakes he landed nine successive Grade 1 contests.

He won 10 overall in his career with a record of 15 races and 15 wins on the flat. These stats make him the greatest race horse to ever live with it being near impossible to match.

His greatest performance could be argued between with flat racing fans for generations but for us we think his 2000 Guineas performance will never be matched.

We want you to decide what you think his best performance is though and here are all of his Grade 1 winning runs during his career courtesy of JossenComps.

His Grade 1 victories:

2010 Dewhurst Stakes

2011 2000 Guineas

2011 St James's Palace

2011 & 2012 Sussex Stakes

2011 Queen Elizabeth II

2012 Lockinge Stakes

2012 Queen Anne

2012 International Stakes

2012 Champion Stakes

Frankel since his retirement has gone into being a very successful Sire Producing Grade 1, 2 and 3 winners across the UK, Ireland and Japan.

With this success his fee has gone up every year and he now stands at £175,000 each time he covers a mare.
