Det­tori: En­able can be first to land dou­ble

The Racing Paper - - News -

FRANKIE Det­tori feels En­able’s trun­cated sea­son might help when she at­tempts to add the Breed­ers’ Cup Turf to her Arc tri­umph.

The four-year-old will try to make his­tory by be­com­ing the first Prix de l’Arc de Tri­om­phe win­ner to go on to win the Churchill Downs show­piece.

The filly has raced only twice this sea­son, win­ning the Group Three 188Bet Septem­ber Stakes at Kemp­ton be­fore head­ing to Longchamp to beat Sea of Class by a neck.

The likes of Danc­ing Brave and Golden Horn have failed to com­plete the dou­ble but that does not bother the Ital­ian leg­end, who feels his­tory could be made.

“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,” he said.

“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.”
