This commemorative print of ‘Two in a Million’ depicts two of the greatest racehorses; Frankel and Sprinter Sacre. Frankel is officially the world's best Thoroughbred racehorse. After winning all four of his races as a two-year-old in 2010, including the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, Frankel proved himself by far the best three-year-old of his generation in 2011. Frankel remained in training as a four-year-old, winning his races at Newbury and Royal Ascot. His third race of 2012 was the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, where Frankel became the first horse in history to win this prestigious race more than once. It was then on to the Group 1 Juddmonte International at York, where Frankel set the record for consecutive wins in European Group 1 races (eight in a row) and won his first race over 10 furlongs by an easy 7 lengths. On his final career start, Frankel won the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Ascot in thrilling style, after which his owner Prince Khalid Abdullah announced that Frankel was to retire to stud, the unbeaten winner of 14 races and the highest rated horse in the world. Sprinter Sacre is a French-bred, British-trained Selle Francais racehorse. Sprinter Sacre made his first appearance in 2010 in a National Hunt Flat race at Ascot, he took the lead a furlong from the finish and won by a nose. Sprinter Sacre had his first jump race in November 2010 and first steeplechase in December 2011. Sprinter Sacre has won at all three major spring jumping Festivals; Punchestown, Cheltenham and Aintree and in 2013 he extended his unbeaten chase record to 10.
