Enable Breeders’ Cup-Bound

|

Enable wins her second straight Arc on Oct. 7 | Racing Post

Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), who on Oct. 7 defended her title in the G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with just one start in the interim, will have her third run of the season in the GI Breeders’ Cup Turf at Churchill Downs on Nov. 3. Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, made the announcement on Tuesday and said further decisions on the 4-year-old filly’s future would be decided after the Breeders’ Cup.

Enable, who has not lost a race since last April, also has last year’s G1 Investec Oaks, G1 Irish Oaks, G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. and G1 Yorkshire Oaks to her credit. She looks to join fellow mare Found (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) as the only horses to win both the Arc and the Turf. No horse has done it in the same year; Found was beating the same year’s Arc winner Golden Horn (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}) when she won the 2015 Turf, and she went on to add the Arc the following year.
