  • THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

    WELCOME FROM THE EDITOR

    Tony Morris, our venerable columnist, has seena lot of horses. Hes also seen a lot of races. Sowhen he says that Frankel is the best miler thathes ever seen better even than Brigadier Gerard, thecolt who dominated the division in the early 1970sand was beaten only once in 18 starts then its timeto accept, if we hadnt already, that were witnessingequine greatness.

    Of course, racing is all about opinions, but when aman like Morris admits to being overwhelmed and intears after a racecourse performance, it pretty muchputs the seal on the deal, so to speak. The colts trainer,Sir Henry Cecil a man who has probably trainedmore champions than the restof his colleagues put together believes his current star is thebest horse he has ever seen.Thats seen, not trained.

    Frankels effort at Goodwoodin the Sussex Stakes took thebreath away. It was a privilegeto watch an animal capable ofsuch startling acceleration in atop level race, against a rival albeit later found to be lame who had proved himself thebest older miler in training.

    Unlike Sea The Stars, whosethree-year-old season provedhis farewell campaign, Frankel is set to stay in trainingas a four-year-old. British racing couldnt have askedfor a better present (notwithstanding the governmentdelivering a suitable replacement for the levy). Beforethen, however, the son of Galileo is likely to prove thebiggest attraction on the new Champions Day at Ascoton October 15. Its a date not to be missed.

    Most owner/breeders would be delighted to haveone Group 1 horse in their armoury each season butKhalid Abdullahs Juddmonte Farms operation under whose banner Frankel was bred continues tochurn out high-class performers and potentialchampions at an incredible rate.

    The cracking battle between Abdullahs duo TwiceOver and Midday in the Juddmonte International, a

    race he was winning for the first time havingsponsored the event since 1989, followed a strikingperformance by his Sea Moon in the Great Voltigeur.The son of Beat Hollow was subsequently installed ashot favourite for the St Leger on September 10.

    The St Leger has become the poor relation to theother four British Classics, with many horsessidestepping the extended 1m 6f contest in favour ofraces over shorter distances.

    In his column this month, James Willoughbyassesses the claim that horses are no longer being bredfor stamina and races like the St Leger byanalysing the winning times of British Classic

    winners. To read Willoughbysfascinating findings, turn topage 23.

    Silvestre de Sousa may wellhave his first Classic ride in thisyears Leger aboard Namibian,on whom he landed theGordon Stakes at Goodwood.

    The jockey, who hails fromSao Paulo in Brazil, hasemerged as the biggest threat toPaul Hanagan in this yearsjockeys title race in part dueto Ryan Moores unfortunateabsence through injury impressing greatly with his

    balance and strength in the saddle.De Sousas services may be in great demand but, as

    Julian Muscat discovers (pages 40-43), there was a timenot so long ago when he couldnt even secure one ride,during his time in Ireland with Dermot Welds stable.

    One day I asked him why I was good enough toride 12 horses ever morning but not good enough toride on the track, de Sousa explains.

    I told him I was leaving and he went mad. He saidhe would find me some rides, but by then I haddecided to walk away.

    It was hard, I was very happy there. Mr Weld wasgood to me. But I wanted to ride.

    Ambition is a very powerful motivator and it mayjust take de Sousa to the top of the jockeys table.
