Frankel was drawing huge crowds everywhere he went.
Tom Queally knew he had one special horse to ride.
Frankel would continue winning throughout his 2012 campaign.
And each race was a pleasure to witness.
Everyone is amazed by this special horse.
And Frankel knows he is a star.
It was decided that Frankel would end his racing career in 2012 and would finish undefeated in all 14 of his races.
Trained by Henry Cecil, Frankel will long be considered one of the greatest to ever hit the track.
Now that the two-time Cartier Horse of the Year award winner is finished racing he will begin his stallion career at Khalid Abdullah's Banstead Manor Stud near Newmarket, England.
