Enable's Plans To Be Outlined After Coronavirus Pandemic

Enable News

Everyone's favourite mare on the flat, Enable, will not be set her plans for the summer until after the Coronavirus Pandemic clears up says Prince Khalid Abdullah's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe.

John Gosden's stable star had another stellar season last year landing a hat-trick of Grade Ones in the Coral Cup, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Yorkshire Oaks.

This set her up perfectly for her third successive bid at the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Paris Longchamp but with the down pour of rain she could only fill the runner-up spot behind Waldgeist to end her amazing run of 12 straight victories.

That was thought to be the last time the great daughter of Nathaniel would be seen on a race track but less than two weeks later it was announced by her owner that she would be kept in training for one more season and again aimed at getting that elusive third Arc title.

However, it is unknown as to what races the 10 time Group One winner will head to in the lead up to the big French feature contest and that is something for her owner and trainer to decide with the population unsure as to when racing will return.

“She’s just cantering away at the moment. It’s obviously very difficult to make any plans – before this wretched thing started it was in her hands, whereas now it’s in the lap of the gods to a certain extent.

“It will be up to the BHA (British Horseracing Authority) to decide on a revised race programme when they’re able to do so. Everything is going to be concertinaed, and we’ll just have to go along with it.

“All we can do for the time being is hunker down and hope there is some light at the end of the tunnel.”
