Two-time Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Enable is to stay in training for next season, her owner Prince Khalid Abdullah has confirmed.
The five-year-old's twelve race victory streak came to an end when she came up short in this month's Arc at Lonchamp but Prince Abdullah's racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe says the plan is to keep Enable in racing shape for 2020:
"Prince Khalid has decided to keep Enable in training for 2020. She has come out of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in good form and will not race again this year.
"Her racing programme will be determined entirely on her well being, so no racing plans will be announced at this stage. The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe remains an important target."
The John Gosden-trained filly has already amassed over £10-million in prize-money but Grimthorpe feels there's still more to come, though there's no solid plan yet for her race schedule:
"There are no plans at all at the moment regarding which races she'll run in.
"She's come out of the Arc in great shape, which gave the Prince the encouragement to take this decision.
"Hopefully all goes well and she gets the chance to go for a third Arc next year."
Jockey Frankie Dettori has welcomed the news this afternoon, saying "My girl is staying in training for next year. I can’t wait. Come on enable."
