After being scratched at the barriers last start King Frankel IRE (Frankel GB/You’ll Be Mine USA) was looking to make amends at Newcastle’s showcase meeting Saturday 12th November 2022. He started his ‘customary dance’ in the pre-race parade for the NZB Insurance ‘The Beauford’ over 2300m.
Ridden by in-form Apprentice Jockey Tyler Schiller, he jumped from barrier 9. Going forward he obtained prime position on the fence and from there was in total control of the race. Rated superbly by Tyler, he led throughout as he turned for home. Once in the long straight he quickened, racing away to win by nearly 2.5 lengths.
Congratulations to Darby Syndications and their group of Owners. Kind Frankel will have a break now, ready to tackle some nice races in the Autumn.
