Superstar Mare Enable Retired, To Begin Breeding Career
NEWMARKET, England: One of the most decorated runners in European horse racing was retired Monday when the owners of superstar mare Enable said she had run her last race and would soon begin a breeding career.
The 6-year-old Enable, who was ridden by Frankie Dettori, is the only horse to win the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Ascot three times. She also won the Prix de lArc de Triomphe twice and the Breeders Cup Turf in the United States.
6岁的Enable由弗兰基·德托里(Frankie Dettori)骑着，是唯一匹在皇家赛马会上三次赢得国王乔治六世(King George VI)和伊丽莎白女王(Queen Elizabeth Stakes)的马。她还两次获得凯旋奖和美国育种者杯草坪奖。
She failed in her bid to win the Arc, Europes richest horse race, for a record third time at Longchamp this month and that proved to be the final race of a storied career that generated 10.7 million pounds ($13.7 million) in earnings a record for a European-trained horse.
Juddmonte, the racing operation of Prince Khalid Abdullah, said Enables first partner would be Kingman, a leading stallion.
哈立德·阿卜杜拉王子(Prince Khalid Abdullah)的赛马业务Juddmonte表示，Enables的第一个合作伙伴将是领先的种马金曼(Kingman)。
Her CV withstands the closest of inspections, said Teddy Grimthorpe, Juddmontes racing manager. Very few can match what she has given to racing.
