International Superstar Enable Retired, To Be Bred To Kingman

Enable, Europe’s Horse of the Year in 2017 and 2019, has been retired from racing, and she will be bred to Kingman for the 2021 breeding season.

Douglas Erskine Crum, CEO Juddmonte Farms, said: “After consulting her trainer John Gosden and his racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe, Prince Khalid has decided that Enable will be retired from racing and will now join the Juddmonte broodmare band to be covered by Kingman in 2021.”

She retires from a 19-race career, spanning five seasons, with 15 wins, including 11 Group 1 races and record earnings for a European-trained horse of £10.7 million (US$14,062,824). Enable is most successful performer ever in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with two wins and a second, an unprecedented three King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and five Oaks (Epsom in race record time, Irish, Yorkshire twice, and Cheshire). She is the only horse to win the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup Turf in the same year, achieving that feat in 2018

Enable, a 6-year-old daughter of Nathaniel, was named Europe’s Cartier Horse of the Year in 2017 and 2019. The Juddmonte homebred was named Europe’s champion 3-year-old filly in 2017, then earned the continent’s champion older female title in 2018 and 2019.

Juddmonte racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: “She has brought so much joy to everyone who has been involved with her. Her elegance and forceful personality have been nurtured by John and his team at Clarehaven, especially by Imran who has looked after her with such calm and devotion. In her, Frankie found a willing partner to execute her ability on the racecourse. Her CV withstands the closest of inspections, very few can match what she has given to racing.”

Kingman, who also raced as a Juddmonte homebred, is a 9-year-old son of Invincible Spirit who stands at Barnstead Manor Stud in Suffolk, England.

He was named Europe’s Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male in 2014 off a campaign that included G1 victories in the Irish 2,000 Guineas, St. James’s Palace Stakes, Sussex Stakes, and Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard – Jacques Le Marois.

Kingman’s most notable runners include St. James’s Palace Stakes winner Palace Pier and French 2,000 Guineas winner Persian King.
