Enable wins 12th straight race in York

22nd August 2019, 16:57 by Dan McCarthy

Enable has won her 12th consecutive race as she crossed the line to take the spoils in the Yorkshire Oaks at York's Ebor Festival.

The John Gosden-trained five-year-old beat off competition from Aidan O'Brien's Magical to extend her sublime record in what could be her final race on British soil.

Frankie Dettori had few problems throughout and despite a brief tussle late on, she came over the line two and three-quarter lengths clear of Magical, with Lah Ti Dar in third.

Enable is now preparing to head to France to run in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at ParisLongchamp in October, looking to win the race for an unprecedented third straight year.

Gosden, speaking at York, said he was thrilled with her performance.

"It was a gorgeous performance from her. She was quick from the gates and there's no point taking her back, so I said to Frankie if she's out there let her float away," he said.

"She was drawn one and there was no point complicating it and disappointing her, we should let her go and do her own thing.

"She cruised round there and really quickened the last two (furlongs) - she really turned it on. It's a long way in front - a mile and a half round the Knavesmire.

"Magical came to her, but she found a lot in the last two furlongs, to that extent she showed her class and it was a good performance."
