A feature documentary telling the story between the late Sir Henry Cecil and equine superstar Frankel is to be broadcast on Channel Four next year.

Produced by Oxford Scientific Films, creators of the award winning How To Win The National, the documentary, will be filmed over the coming months before being broadcast in the build up to next year’s Royal Ascot.

With unrivalled access to Frankel, Warren Place and key members of the racing community, it reveal the secrets of Frankel’s training and that of his legendary Newmarket handler’s battle to get back to the top of the sport.

“This documentary marks our sixth dedicated horseracing commission within a three year period and reinforces our tireless commitment to the sport,” said Jamie Aitchinson, Channel Four’s commissioning editor for sport.

“I would like to thank Juddmonte for their co-operation on this project. The enviable accessibility will ensure that this documentary will be must-see-television.”
