Retired to stud after a fantastic 2009 flat season. Among the progeny include Oaks winner, Taghrooda, Masar (who won the 2018 Epsom Derby) and top stayer Stradivarius (two Goodwood Cups, 2017 & 2018 and an Ascot Gold Cup 2018).

He had stamina, tremendous acceleration and the balance to handle courses as different as Epsom & Longchamps. Mick Kinane who also rode Galileo said he had never felt such power beneath him when asked to go. In contrast to the likes of Frankel and Mill Reef, he was not a relentless galloper and had a tendency to idle when he had nothing to chase. To quote Sir Anthony McCoy, "We never got to the bottom of him." How he would have compared with Pinza, Sea-Bird, Nijinsky, Mill Reef and Shergar is anyone's guess, but for what my opinion is worth, the best European racehorse we have seen this century to date.

Great run winning the Triple Crown, Haskell, and Breeders Cup Classic, and only lost the Travers by half a length. Best horse of the 21st century. Would have done great things as a 4 year old if he were allowed to run.

FRANKEL Report Abuse
Literally THE greatest. Won 14 races and considered by many knowledgeable people to be the very best of all time. Unfortunately his best distance seems to have been a mile to 12 furlongs and so his connections ether chose to duck out of the really big races, or were too cowardly. However this should not detract from hos greatness
