Enable retired after a memorable career




Connections have confirmed the retirement of Enable after a glittering career.

The John Gosden-trained superstar won 11 races at the top level, including two Prix de l'Arc de Triomphes and a record King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

There had been suggestions she could run on Champions' Day at Ascot this weekend after finishing sixth at the Arc earlier this month, but that is now not the case.

Teddy Grimthorpe – racing manager to owner Prince Khalid Abdullah – 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 (Dettori, jockey) 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.”

Douglas Erskine Crum, who is the CEO at Juddmonte, added: “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.”
