The performance of the day, weekend and probably season was seen in the Champions Stakes. Cracksman in the hands of Frankie Dettori absolutely trounced his rivals. Dettori went for home early, but once he did there was little doubt who would come home first.
The horse is nigh on unbeatable on soft ground and so it proved as he won by seven lengths. The quality of the field in behind showed how ludicrously good this horse is on his day. Yes, he has struggled on fast ground, however there probably hasn’t been a better horse in and around this distance since his Father, Frankel.
The horse can now enjoy his retirement at stud with connections hoping he can follow in his father’s footsteps again by producing a dual Champions Stakes winner.
