The filly Enable won Europe's most prestigious race, Le Prix de L'arc De Triomphe in Paris last Sunday for the 2nd year in a row.
She is one of the greatest fillies of all time. 

She's won 8 races in a row, the last 7 being Grade 1s.
In many of those races she ran against males and humiliated them.

She is most likely headed to The Breeders Cup Turf race and she will probably be the most heralded superstar in all of the races over the weekend.

She will very likely be a favorite to beat the boys in this classic race. 

This year, the race is being held at Churchill Downs in Louisville so I'm praying there won't be rain that ruins the turf or forces them to take it off the turf. Recently it's been run in CA where there is very little chance of that.

Her jock is Frankie Dettori who is one of the greatest turf jockeys out there.

I'm not saying she's an advantage play, she will surely be bet pretty far down.

I'd be shocked if she finished worse than 3rd.

She is regarded by many as being "The Greatest Racehorse in the World" right now although some might give that title to the mare Winx. 

Even without betting this race will be very fun to watch.



On the downside it's possible she won't like or react well to the very long trip over here. I doubt that will be a factor but it's always a possibility.

They won't take this race off the turf
