News » ENABLE crowned the Cartier Horse of the Year - This Filly Can
ENABLE was crowned the Cartier Horse of the Year at Tuesday night’s annual Cartier Awards, making her the third filly to win the prestigious award in the last 5 years.
Trained by John Gosden and ridden by Frankie Dettori, she has dominated this year’s top middle-distance races, winning five consecutive Group One races in three different countries. A feat made even more impressive considering that this time last year she had not even set foot on a racecourse.
Last month, she created history by becoming the first British-trained filly to win Europe’s most prestigious race, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Where she beat 12 Group One winners including Ulysses and Order of St George, both of whom won prizes at Tuesday’s awards.
Enable also took home the took home the Cartier three-year old filly award, in which she saw off competition from fellow Group One winners; Winter, Roly Poly and Lady Aurelia. The Cartier two-year old filly award went to Happily, whom the record-breaking Aidan O’Brien trained to win last month’s Qatar Prix Jean-Luc Lagarde Grand Criterium.
