2018 was by far Enable's most difficult year to date. Plagued by a knee injury, it was highly speculated that she may have to be retired due to the injury but in typical Enable fashion, she bounced back bigger and better than ever.
She wasn't seen on a racetrack until September when she headed to Kempton for the Group 3 September Stakes.
Sent off an 8/15 favourite, she put any concerns of rust to bed after her 11 month lay off by holding off the challenge of second favourite Crystal Ocean by 3½ lengths. With that victory in the bag, it was all systems go on her quest to win back to back Arc's and that is exactly what she did.
It wasn't her best career performance in the Arc but it did show just how tough of a horse she is. The well backed Sea Of Class ran on late but just couldn't find a way past the superstar filly as she joined the elite club of horses to win back to back Arc's. However, her season wasn't done there.
Connections then made the decision to take her stateside for the Breeders' Cup Turf at Churchill Downs. It seemed at the time that it would be her final swan song so punters were all for it but little did we know, it was far from the end. It was England vs Ireland in a tight finish once again as she held off AP O'Briens MAGICAL in another tight finish, something which she was becoming renowned for. Connections then confirmed after that race that she'd run again as a five year-old in 2019, a punters dream.
