Record-breaking horse Enable has been retired from racing, Juddmonte has announced.

The six-year-old mare claimed 11 Group One wins, including two in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and three King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

Enable missed out on a historic third success in the Arc earlier this month when finishing sixth at Longchamp.

It had been expected that she would be back in action in Saturday's British Champions Day at Ascot.

Douglas Erskine Crum, CEO of 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."

Teddy Grimthorpe added: "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 retires with a record of 15 wins from her 19 races, earning more than £10m in prize money.

Frankie Dettori rode her in the last 17 of her 19 career starts and she is the only horse to win the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup Turf in the same year.
