The world's most eligible equine bachelor has stunned his owners by coming out as gay, just hours after winning his final race at Ascot.
Unbeaten in fourteen meetings, a horse of Frankel's calibre could expect to generate his owner over £100m in stud fees as he spends the rest of his life sharing his massive talent among the pick of the world's fillies.
Frankel's Saudi owner Prince Khalid Abdulla is believed to being supporting his prized asset, saying "Fillies, colts, donkeys or unicorns - as long as he's happy, that's all that matters. Good Luck to him, I say."
The tolerant approach shows how far the sport has come since the days of Njinsky, who became the world's first openly gay winner of the Triple Crown in 1970, before becoming the world's first openly gay adhesive 'UHU' two years later.
