Roaring Lion And Enable Both Given Stall Two For American Conquest

Roaring Lion

The two John Gosden trained superstars of the season, Enable and Roaring Lion are both getting geared up for there final runs of the season this weekend when they race in America in the Breeders Cup meeting at Churchill Downs.

Enable who is a dual Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner is looking to become the first horse in the sorts history to win the French Group 1 and then straight after go and win The Group 1 Breeders Cup Turf.

She has only raced twice this season but from her last run is more than ready to take on a similar field to that of what she beat last time out, but this time she will have to do it from Stall two.

The 1 mile 4 furlong event should see 13 runners go to post with the other 12 competitors coming from some really smart yards. Aidan O'Brien fields two runners in Magical who is in stall five and won the British Champions Fillies and Mares last time out and Hunting Horn who is in stall 13.

Andre Fabre also fields two runners in this race after his disappointment in the Arc this year. He has last year's winner Talismanic who is in stall one and Waldgeist who looks to be his best chance here in stall 12.

Roaring lion on the other hand is going over the dirt for the first time in his career in the Breeders Cup Classic and he is also in stall two. He will encounter 14 runners and riders in the 1 mile 2 furlong contest. If this three year old colt wins it will be one of the training performances of the year and assure him of the Cartier Horse Of The year as he will have then picked up five Group 1s for the season.

He is up against some proven dirt specialists in Saeed bin Suroor's Thunder Snow who has previously won the Dubai World Cup, he is in stall one and Mendelssohn who will jockey Ryan Moore on board will be in stall nine.

This is set to be the final performance in Roaring Lion's career as he is set to be retired to stud after this race and if does go on to win that will only increase the price of how much he will cost.
