    Default Frankel rumors

    Well if the day wasn't bad enough, having lost Synchronised today at Aintree, we will no longer see the most exciting flat horse to come along in decades again on a racecourse.
    Turns out Frankel's injury last week is worse than thought and he has been retired.

    Screw this racing game, it's not for the faint hearted.

    Just a rumor, he is having another scan this morning. Hope he can make it back! Exciting horse.

    Emotions right now:

    I guess I am fainthearted when it comes to such a once-in-a-lifetime horse like Frankel.

    Thank goodness the Twitter (emphasize TWIT ) rumour has turned out to be less than accurate, for the time being.

    He's due to gallop Saturday at Newmarket. And race on May 19th.
