Enable wins Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe for 2nd straight year

Enable wins Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe for 2nd straight year

Gosden raised the possibility of Enable staying in training as a five-year-old in a bid to become the first horse to win the Arc three times.

That triumph added to top-level wins in the English, Irish and Yorkshire Oaks, as well the King George, ensuring she ended 2017 as the undoubted queen of the Turf.

Enable missed a lot of the present campaign due to injury after last year's win at the temporary Chantilly venue but made an impressive comeback with victory at Kempton last month.

Yet she was a red-hot favourite and in overcast conditions, she did not let supporters down.

Dettori allowed Enable her head with 400m to go and she struck the front but did not go clear and it was Sea Of Class which came from last passing halfway to rush home and got within a short neck at the finish with Cloth Of Stars, runner-up in the race a year ago, staying on for third, beaten three-quarters of a length.

Enable hit the front two furlongs out but Sea of Class rallied to finish second by a short neck, with last year's runner-up Cloth of Stars third at the redeveloped Longchamp.

Further Australian support following the Sulawesi quake and tsunami
The national disaster agency said the confirmed death toll from last Friday's magnitude 7.5 quake increased slightly to 1,571. Many hundreds of people are now entombed in slowly drying mud churned with heaps of debris and vehicles.

That well-known actor raped me: Vinta Nanda
It ( rape ) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. "Neither am I denying this nor do I would agree with it". Later, she got a job to write and direct a series for Plus Channel, and again her paths crossed with Nath.

"It's not been the preparation we wanted, it's been very hard". I actually had a hiccup between Kempton and here with a slight temperature, so it has not been easy.

Sea of Class trainer William Haggas was proud of her efforts: "She got beaten by a champion, Enable is a great horse". "It's entirely down the filly and her guts and she was given a lovely ride by Frankie". "In fact, he gave a wonderful performance and I congratulate his owners for his class and ability to win the Qatar Arabian World Cup", Sheikh Abdullah said.

"For Winx, she beat a filly (Youngstar) - not by an extended margin - and well tried horses finished close to her".

The John Gosden-trained filly is only the eighth horse to achieve the double with Dettori winning it for a sixth time. "He wanted to come here and if she's in good form there's no reason you wouldn't try to come again".

"She is unbelievable", said Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for Juddmonte."It's so exciting". She was just getting a little exhausted. She probably needed the race, but what a great job done by John and everyone at Clarehaven.

"It's great for Prince Khalid". She had the dream trip and we were lucky like that.
