Enable Wows Fan Base in Public Gallop
Superstar mare Enable (Nathaniel-Concentric, by Sadler's Wells) played to an enthralled audience on Sunday as she cantered with ears pricked up Warren Hill, on the second day of the Henry Cecil Open Day in Newmarket. The weekend, which allows the general public a rare glimpse behind the scenes of some of the top stables in the British racing headquarters, is held in celebration of Sir Henry Cecil with proceeds donated to charity. Enable's presence no doubt garnered significant interest, particularly as she is just two weeks away from a shot at an unprecedented third victory in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Paris' Longchamp. Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah, relayed his delight at her fans' reaction to RacingTV. "I think we all come into racing for these very special horses, and the fans are no different. They bring the energy and the vibrancy to the whole game, and to have Enable and have her going for the third Arc is really quite something." He provided his thoughts on how the John Gosden-trained mare would move forward with her preparation, confirming that whatever happens with the rain forecast over the coming week, Gosden would ensure she galloped on the grass - without the throngs of spectators cheering her on this time.
