Champion horse Frankel set for final run

A look at what is expected to be the final race for Frankel, considered by many the greatest racehorse history.

    Making his debut two years ago at Newmarket, England, the champion of horse racing Frankel is set to retire at the age of four.

    In the world of horse racing, Frankel is the unbeaten, "lightening strike" of genetics not likely to be repeated in 100 years.

    Now, his owner Prince Khalid Abdullah will send him out to stud with an estimated worth of over 160 million dollars.
