Frankel to work at Newmarket Saturday
"The gallop will be over a mile and one furlong and the intention is for Frankel to go to the winner's enclosure afterwards."
The gallop is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. (British time) (8 a.m. EDT) with owner Prince Khalid Abdulla's silks being worn by all three jockeys. Joining Queally in the racecourse work-out will be two of Sir Henry's stable grooms, Shane Fetherstonhaugh (Specific Gravity) and Danny Dunnachie (Bullet Train).
Frankel is officially the highest-rated horse in the world, having won all 13 of his starts.
"We are thrilled that Frankel will be with us at the start of one of our best day's racing of the year," Newmarket Racecourses Managing Director Amy Starkey said. "And what's great from our perspective is that we are forecast a dry and sunny day for it.
"Saturday represents a brilliant opportunity for people in the East region -- and beyond -- the chance to come and get close to the greatest racehorse in the world.
"Horses like Frankel don't come along very often, so from my own perspective, I want to see as much of him as I possibly can, and the team at Newmarket Racecourses all feel similarly excited about the prospect."
Newmarket clerk of the course Michael Prosser expects no change to the ground conditions for the final day of the Cambridgeshire Festival and that the going will remain good.
"We had some light rain today which didn't amount to 0.5 millimeters in the rain jug and the forecast proved correct," Prosser said. "We had showers from midday until 2 p.m. and the sun is coming out now and it is meant to be a fine evening.
"We will have a heavy dew tomorrow morning and it will then be a beautiful autumnal day with temperatures about 15 or 16 degrees (Celsius). The wind is due to diminish and we will have prolonged sunny spells.
"The ground is currently good and with the heavy dew it will remain that way tomorrow."
