John Gosden Reports On His Supertar Breeders Cup Duo

ENABLE

One of the greatest race horses currently on the planet, Enable will be looking to do what no other horse has done in history and go on to take the Prix de l'arc de Triomphe and the Breeders Cup Turf in the same year.

The four year old has had a real struggle of a campaign which has made what she has accomplished even more astounding, only being able to take part in two races so far this season due to an injury during her winter break, limiting what she could do.

She raced on the all weather at Kempton in the Group 3 September Stakes beating a good Crystal Ocean by five lengths going away at only 80 percent fitness. From there she went on to take her second Arc in consecutive years, being the first horse to land the Group 1 off the back of only one warm up race on the all weather.

Heading into the Breeders Cup Turf will be one of the hardest challenges of the fillies career but her jockey Frankie Dettori thinks she can break the record that has never been done before

(Credit At The Races) Dettori said: “I’m aware of the fact that no horse has won an Arc and a Breeders’ Cup Turf, but records are there to be broken.

“In favour of Enable, she has only raced twice, is very fresh in herself and seems to have travelled over well, and she’s shown her versatility winning around Chester and Epsom and also a King George in soft ground.

“You never can be completely certain that everything is spot on, but you certainly wouldn’t suspect it (anything wrong) with this filly.”

Her trainer was also very happy with the way she has travelled over and her is what he had to say when interviewed earlier today.

ROARING LION

Gosden's other superstar of the season and the favourite to take this years Cartier Horse Of The Year, Roaring Lion also faces his toughest test to date when stepping up to run on the dirt in the Breeders Cup Classic

The three year old owned by Qatar Racing has enjoyed four Group 1 victories this season in the Coral-Eclipse, Juddmonte International, Irish Champion Stakes and the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

Yesterday he went through some training in the stalls with a huge difference in American racing compared to European racing is that the horses go the quickest at the start the race compared to that at the end and this is why getting out the stalls is crucial to where the horse could finish.

Frankie Dettori instead of his usual jockey Oisin Murphy put him through his paces and Gosden had this to say about his wonder horse.

(Credit At The Races) Gosden said: “Frankie knows a thing or two about American racing, so it seemed the logical thing to do.

“I’m happy with the way it went, as I wanted the horse to have experience of the gate before Saturday.

“It is a huge challenge for him, having only won the QEII 11 days ago. Frankie looked at him this morning and asked me, ‘Is that horse fit?’, such is the middle on him.

“He was playing and squealing this morning, which is perfectly normal for him.

“I would have been disappointed if he hadn’t done that.”

He carried on talking about the horse in this interview below.
