VIDEO: Magnificent Enable returns in style to land Eclipse glory
on 06 July 2019
The Juddmonte homebred is a daughter of Nathaniel and the dual Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine is only the third of her sex to win the Coral-Eclupse

ENABLE showed her brilliance as she made a superb seasonal debut in the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown.

The John Gosden-trained mare became only the third of her sex to win the mile-and-a-quarter showpiece, after Pebbles (1985) and Kooyonga (1992) – and did it in style as she registered her eighth triumph at the highest level.

Frankie Dettori had the 4/6 favourite in the ideal pitch in second place behind the Aidan-O’Brien-trained Hunting Horn, before asking the dual Prix de ‘Arc de Triomphe heroine to go and win her race.

Though it was her first start since the Breeders’ Cup, she had the class to overcome any race-rustiness and defeat her old rival Magical, from the O’Brien team, by three-quarters of a length.

Regal Reality was two lengths back in third.
