Frankel confirmed as world number one

Racing superstar Frankel has officially become the highest-ever rated racehorse on the Flat according to the recently updated 2012 World Thoroughbred Rankings.

The retired champion, who remained unbeaten in all 14 of his races, takes the top spot after the rating for previous number one Dancing Brave was downgraded.

Frankel's rating is confirmed as 140, with Dancing Brave at 138, Shergar on 136 and Alleged on 134.

The five-year-old colt by Galileo out of Kind, who is trained by Sir Henry Cecil, and owned by Prince Khalid Abdulla, crowned his unbeaten career with victory in the Champion Stakes at Ascot in October 2012.

He was retired at the age of four for a breeding career due to start next month (February) with a stud fee of £125,000.
