she’s more than able

Racing Ahead - - PHOTO SPECIAL -

EN­ABLE will thrill her fans at least one more time when she runs in the Breed­ers’ Cup at Churchill Downs on No­vem­ber 3.

That could be the last time she sets foot on a race­course and would be a fit­ting end af­ter her heart-stop­ping win in the Prix De L’Arc de Tri­om­phe.

Hav­ing just her se­cond start of the sea­son, she was all out un­der Frankie Det­tori to hold off the fastfin­ish­ing Sea Of Class and Jamie Doyle who had to come from dead last turn­ing into the straight.

It was a bril­liant ef­fort by both fil­lies and a fit­ting end to the first Arc at the new Paris Longchamp course.

Af­ter win­ning the race for the sixth time, Det­tori said: “I had the world be­hind me – ev­ery­one wanted her to win – so you do feel the pres­sure.

“Things went ac­cord­ing to plan in the race. I found my­self in a fan­tas­tic spot.

“As we came into the false straight the life in the old girl came back - I knew then we were in busi­ness.

“I waited as long as I could and when I said ‘come on girl let’s go’ the trade­mark turn of foot was there. She put the race to bed then. The last 50 yards the poor girl was tired. She wasn’t the En­able of last year but she got the job done.”
