ENABLE DOES THE DOUBLE
Enable became the first filly to complete the Oaks and Irish Oaks double in seven years when she bested her rivals on Saturday (15th July) at the Curragh.
Lord Grimthorpe commented: "That was very exciting - it's a long time back to Wemyss Bight and Bolas and she has done it in the style of a top-class filly."
"The way the race was run at Epsom, they really put it to her and she outstayed them and although today the pace was not quite so energetic and it was run at a sensible gallop it was something to get a good stride into. She was very much physically tall and leggy at two, but has got some substance and strength to her now and also has a very nice temperament. I'd have to talk to John and Prince Khalid about the King George, as it could come too soon and we could instead go to the Yorkshire Oaks and other races in the autumn. She'd have to be supplemented for the Arc,but they are nice thoughts to have."
