Privilege Of Seeing Superstars

We the racing fraternity have been extremely lucky and privileged to witness some racing superstars in the last 2 years. Others have had to wait decades after the likes of Secretariat and Nijinsky II.

It started in the US last year with Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra. Then in Europe we saw what is probably the best turf horse of all times, namely Sea The Stars. Harbinger is another who merits mention after his King George victory.

Around the same time in India we saw the fabulous all conquering Jacqueline do what no one had done before.

And finally towards the end of 2010 we've seen another superstar who promises to be better than the best. He's called Frankel.

Let's wait and see what 2011 has in store for us.
