Enable: Queen of the Turf

  • On Sale
  • Regular price £19.99


A modern-day racing heroine, a queen of the turf, Enable stirred the emotions of fans like few before her. Any weather, any racecourse, and any opposition could be overcome; her achievements were unique. This is a story that had to be told and one that has been told through the lens of the Racing Post – its best writers, most astute analysts and unrivalled photographers all play a part.

Discover how Enable’s masterful trainer John Gosden managed her from beginning to end. Setbacks are inevitable with a beast as fragile as the thoroughbred but Gosden was precise in his handling, and as a consequence Enable delivered when it mattered most, winning two Arcs among a host of Group 1 races before coming up just shy of a historic third in Paris.

Of course, her story is incomplete without the one-off in the saddle. Frankie Dettori, rider of so many household names, was moved to tears at York on her final racecourse appearance in Britain. He knew he would never ride another horse like Enable. She meant something more to him, something different. Enable will forever hold a special place in Frankie’s heart, as she will for all those who saw her race.
