    • Synopsis
    • After four decades of successfully training hundreds of winners and owning the most successful stables in the UK, Sir Henry Cecil was at his lowest. Until, by destiny, he was introduced to a young colt named Frankel by his long-time friend and horse owner Prince Khalid Abdullah. This is the incredible true story of how Henry fought failure and illness to make Frankel the greatest champion racehorse of all time, unbeaten in 14 starts, winning all the honours and bowing out with an emotional victory in front of a capacity crowd at the prestigious Ascot Racecourse. Henry and Frankel made history.
