Few horses really layer a market like Enable has. The horse has secured 12 successive races and goes into her final race looking for a third successive Prix de l’arc de Triomphe.
It’s been a phenomenal career and one that reduced veteran jockey Frankie Dettori to tears following her final win on British soil at the Yorkshire Oaks just a few weeks ago.
Enable is a large favourite for the October 6 race, ahead of the likes of Japan, Crystal Ocean and Sottsass and it’ll certainly be worth looking to check good betting applications to find offers, as it’s likely many will be marking the historic occasion.
It’s been a quite remarkable career and one that has seen the bookmakers pay out millions as the whole horse racing community got behind her, recognising a truly special horse.
Following her win in York, Dettori said, “I love her so much that I’m biased, but I haven’t lost with her yet and we’ve won everything. She’s an amazing horse, she does it every way and she’s uncomplicated with a big presence and a massive engine. I’ll never have a horse like her in my life, with that longevity and the amount of big races that she’s won.”
It’s been quite the career and one more win will certainly put her down as an all-time great, securing the most wins in the Prix and a legacy that’ll live long in the memory.
It all started as a two-year-old for Enable, beginning life with a race win at Newcastle and it was a habit which never changed, with a hugely successful 2017 in which she picked up six major wins, including the Prix, the Epsom Oaks, the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Yorkshire Oaks.
2018 continued in a similar fashion and the big wins saw her named Horse of the Year for a second successive year. It wasn’t the best start with injury delaying her return to the track until August, but it wasn’t enough to beat her in the September Stakes, another Prix and capping the year in fine style in the Breeders Cup Turf Stakes, her first and only jaunt in the USA.
This year, Enable missed a number of races including both at Epsom and Royal Ascot but returned in style for the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown and has picked up the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Yorkshire Oaks since.
October 6 will mark her final run and the entire horse racing community will be willing her and Frankie Dettori over the line. She’s provided a lot of magic for John Gosden, but what’s more she’s thrilled crowds, and made them a lot of money too. It’s the end of an era, and if here’s one thing Enable will do, its finish in dominant fashion.
