About the Author

Simon Cooper is the Wainwright Prize-winning author of The Otter's Tale and Life of a Chalkstream. He is also one of the UK's leading chalkstream conservationists. In a former life, Simon worked in the horse-racing industry, so has unprecedented access to the stud farms, stables and racetracks that are integral to Frankel's story.


Praise for Frankel

'Cooper paints a complete picture of Frankel, charting his meteoric rise from the first years of his life through to his glorious send-off when winning the Champion Stakes at Ascot ... transporting the reader with his vivid descriptions ... While he is undoubtedly the star of the show, this book is about so much more than just Frankel ... Thanks to Cooper, and his dedication to colouring the blanks in this famous story, we can now know Frankel a little better too' Racing Post

'Well-researched and written with an enthusiast's brio. Moreover, it is utterly engrossing ... Frankel's story is an extraordinary one and Cooper tells it in an easy, compelling style ... [He] takes the reader on an equine pilgrimage, all the more thrilling as the object of veneration is still just 12 years old and standing at stud near Newmarket' The Field

'Simon Cooper does a sterling job ... a wry, amiable guide, Cooper takes intriguing tangents aplenty ... his real skill, though, lies in detailing Frankel's day-to-day life' i newspaper
