Queally on Frankel

Spirit

"He's a real trier. You can have a horse with all the ability in the world but sometimes they'll get to the front and they'll prick their ears and then pull up. He just gallops, keeps galloping, gallops them into the ground."

Heart

"You hear of athletes with incredible cardiovascular capacity, or lung capacity or bigger hearts, athletes with in-built physical advantages. I feel this with Frankel, that he must be a serious, almost freakish athlete."

Stride

"When you're riding him, you feel like there's almost a kind of swagger there. It's like a Usain Bolt, there's a unique physical quality somewhere and part (of it) is that he does have this fantastic long stride."

Personality

"If he was a human, you'd say he'd be a very nice person with a lovely temperament. You can do anything you want with him; he'd never dream of kicking you or biting you."
