“Lichtenstein was more app than artist; the Frankel of one-trick ponies.”

PS:
Frankel, unbeaten in his fourteen race career and was the highest-rated racehorse in the world. Frankel’s record of nine successive Group 1 wins is unsurpassed and has been equalled only by the U.S.A. filly Zenyatta. Frankel’s performance in the 2000 Guineas has been described as “one of the greatest displays on a British racecourse”.
