Saturday Throwback

Saturday Throwback

There is no better way to start your Saturday then watching back through some of the best races of the last 10 years and for the simple reason of how much of a superstar Enable has become we are looking back at her first win in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Enable became a star overnight when landing Group Ones in England against the girls and the boys but her first real moment on the international big stage, although already winning in Ireland, was at Chantilly for her first taste of the Arc.

The daughter of Nathaniel was unbeaten in all her seven contests before heading to France but facing a field of 18 rivals for the first time and in a foreign country, there were doubts.

The ground was soft on the day which have her conditions to suit, with as us all knowing unless it is really a bog she will go on most grounds.

At three years of age she went on to land the contest in style, not being caught for any amount and Gosden and Dettori had found the horse of a lifetime.
