Eclipse is first target for Enable
on 01 June 2020
The six-year-old mare will skip Royal Ascot and reappear in July

Enable will make her eagerly-awaited reappearance in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on July 5th.

The John Gosden-trained mare has stayed in training as a six-year-old with the ultimate aim of winning the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe for the third time.

Owned by Khalid Abdullah, the daughter of Nathaniel was just denied an unprecedented third success in the ParisLongchamp feature 12 months ago – and like last year, her season will start in the same place.

Abdullah’s racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: “Prince Khalid is happy she aims towards that race, which is obviously where she started last year.”

A trip to Royal Ascot could have been considered, but Grimthorpe, who is not looking beyond Sandown in terms of the next target, said: “It’s like everything, there’s always various decisions to be made and obviously the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the ultimate aim again, so we hope this is the best course. In these days it’s very much one race at a time.”
