Dettori claims record fifth Prix de l'Arc win on Enable


Frankie Dettori claimed a record fifth Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe with victory on John Gosden's Enable at Chantilly on Sunday.

Dettori held off the challenge of Cloth Of Stars two-and-a-half lengths back in second, with Sir Michael Stoute's Ulysses third and Order Of St George, one of five Aiden O'Brien horses in the race, fourth.

Enable has now won all five of her Group 1 starts, by an aggregate on 22-and-a-half lengths, with the three-year-old previously claiming the Epsom Oaks, the Irish Oaks, the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Yorkshire Oaks titles.

 "She's uncomplicated and has a big heart. I was very confident. C'est magnifique. She's a tremendous filly," jockey Dettori said.

Trainer Gosden says Enable is unlikely to run again in 2017, and all but ruled out the dual Classic winner competing at November's Breeders' Cup at Del Mar, San Diego.

"She's very special and she was well positioned by Frankie in order to show her sheer class and brilliance," he said.

"It's all about the filly and the owner-breeder Prince Khalid [Abdullah]. He bred the mother and for his farm to produce something like this is exciting for us all.

"I think it would be wrong to run her again this year. I think to go to the Breeders' Cup would be wrong, too hard on the filly. 

"If she's in great form we should consider next year. Maybe it would be wonderful to go to the opening of the new Longchamp and try to do it again."
