Juddmonte Farms has today announced that Prince Khalid’s great mare will be retired.
Douglas Erskine Crum, CEO Juddmonte, said: “After consulting her trainer John Gosden and his Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe, Prince Khalid has decided that Enable will be retired from racing and will now join the Juddmonte broodmare band to be covered by Kingman in 2021.”
She retires from a 19 race career, spanning 5 seasons, with 15 wins, including 11 Group Ones and record earnings for a European trained horse of £10.7m. The most successful performer ever in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with two wins and a second, an unprecedented three King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, five Oaks (Epsom in race record time, Irish, Yorkshire x 2 & Cheshire). The only horse to win the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup Turf in the same year.
Teddy Grimthorpe said: “She has brought so much joy to everyone who has been involved with her. Her elegance and forceful personality have been nurtured by John and his team at Clarehaven, especially by Imran who has looked after her with such calm and devotion. In her, Frankie found a willing partner to execute her ability on the racecourse. Her CV withstands the closest of inspections, very few can match what she has given to racing.”
Enable became the first horse ever to win the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes three times. more...
