horse racing - Enable makes history

Posted on

Enable, ridden by Frankie Dettori, eased to a record-breaking victory in the King George V! and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

The mare became the first horse to win the great race three times and Dettori equalled Lester Piggott's record with his seventh victory in the event, one of Britain's great flat races.

For trainer John Gosden it was his fifth victory in the "King George", one adrift of Michael Stoute's mark.
