  • Enable: Amazing!

    Surprised that no one has already commented on Enable's amazing King George at Ascot (unless I missed something). She ran a wonderful race, starting from the outside and defeating Crystal Ocean in a long, hard stretch drive:

    Video here:

    I think Dettori only used his whip once, then a powerful hand ride.

    What a mare! And what wonderful ears!

    Well, I don't know anything about horse racing but that was pretty fun to watch!!

      WEll, Dettor might have used the whip only once or twice, but it was in full view of Enable's eye in that powerful hand ride.
      Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

      Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

        She is an exceptional mare. Its interesting, with good colts generally raced and retired fairly quickly these days, its the good race mares that we get a chance to follow and cheer for thru their longer careers. That was an awesome race to watch.

          Horses staying in training for years is one reason why jump racing is possibly more popular than flat in the UK.

          She is an exceptional mare with an exceptional team behind her.

              What a mare, and what a race that was! I was up at Saratoga on Saturday, and everyone was talking about this race all day - that stretch duel was so thrilling, and Dettori's interview after the race almost made me cry.

                Thanks for starting this thread; I kept meaning to but never got round to it. Enable and Frankie are an exciting and marvelous distraction from all the chaos plaguing US racing this year.

                ETA: Another bright star is Stradivarius, aptly named because he is the maestro of distance racing. He won the Goodwood Cup for a record 3rd time today.
