Post Cartier Racing Awards

If ever a sign was needed that there are those still willing to remember the virtues of our sport in a world that pays little attention to anything these days, it was The Queen’s gesture in dressing the Household Cavalry last week in Frankel’s colours, to mark his second Cartier Horse of the Year award. It’s never happened before, and it’s unlikely to happen again, not only because of the strict dress code of Her Majesty’s personal bodyguard, but especially because mankind has never witnessed the like of Frankel before, and we’re unlikely to do so again.

Frame this picture: it’s history already.
