Frankel is a legendary racehorse who touches people’s hearts. This film combines his story with that of  the charismatic man who trained him. Henry Cecil had been the most successful racehorse trainer in the world. He had it all. But then lost it all. Then, together with Frankel, he won it all back again.


“ There’s more than a whiff of alchemy when it comes to spotting a winning horse…. Cecil stayed in the race long enough to find his winner at the last. And what a winner!” Radio Times

“ This is no ordinary documentary….it is such a moving account of Sir Henry Cecil’s defining achievements with Frankel that even those casual viewers with no racing knowledge may be rooted to the sofa..” The Times

“ Ahead of Royal Ascot comes this terrific film relating the story of how Frankel became the ultimate champion racehorse…” Mail on Sunday
