Frankel, the highest rated racehorse in the world, has retired an unbeaten champion following his win in the QIPCO Champions Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.
Despite being slow leaving the stallls, leaving him a length behind his rivals, Frankel cruised into the lead and finished nearly two lengths clear of Cirrus Des Aigles, a multiple Group One winner who was victorious in this race last year.
While some had questioned whether the bay colt would cope with the soft going, Frankel and jockey Tom Queally did exactly what they needed to and no more to hold off several exceedingly classy rivals.
The victory truly vindicated his trainer Sir Henry Cecil's belief that he was the best horse he'd ever trained.
With £737,000 to the winner, the race took Frankel's career earnings to just under £3million.
It was announced after the race that Frankel would be retired to stud at Juddmonte Farm, where he will command a stud fee of £100,000 per covering, potentially rising to much more - if he proves successful as a sire.

Another top class miler, Excelebration, won the QIPCO Queen Elizabeth Stakes in impressive style. The four-year-old by Exceed And Excel finished three lengths clear of Cityscape.
Rite Of Passage, who has also won over hurdles, won the opening race of the day, the QIPCO British Champions Long Distance Cup. Jamie Spencer and Maarek were best of the sprinters in the QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes, while Pat Smullen and Sapphire won the Fillies and Mares race.
