FRANKEL annihilates his rivals in the 2000 Guineas

FRANKEL won the 2000 Guineas by 6 lengths going start to finish. He led from the start by about 5 lengths and then increased that lead by over 10 lengths half way through the race and went to the post 6 lengths clear of his struggling 12 rivals. It was a very impressive victory indeed and he justified his short price. 

Now one waits to see if this son of Galileo will stay the trip in June or not. His pedigree shows enough stamina but his manner of running definitely puts a big question mark of doing it over 12 furlongs. He most likely will run the Dante which will show whats in store for him later on.

As for the Guineas, there is no doubt that we have seen yet another champion. An all time great.
