Enable WIns Fourth Group One At York

Outstanding filly Enable secured her fourth successive Group One victory with a powerful front-running display to land the Yorkshire Oaks at York.

The Nathaniel filly, trained by John Gosden, had won the English and Irish Oaks and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot in her previous three starts.

Gosden confirmed to the Racing Post that Enable would now head to the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp on October1.

“She'll go to the Arc. She's the best filly I've ever trained over a mile and a half - she's exceptional," said Gosden.

Bred and raced by Juddmonte Farms Enable (Nathaniel x Concentric by Sadler's Wells) is out of the listed-winning mare Concentric, whose three foals to race have all been winners.

Concentric is out of the G3 winner Apogee (Shirley Heights) making her a sister to G2 winner Dance Routine, the dam of multiple G1 winner Flintshire (Dansili) and Listed winner Dance Moves (Dansili).

Concentric, also a half-sister to the G3 winner Apsis (Barathea) and Listed winner Space Quest (Rainbow Quest), has foaled a colt by Dansili who is unraced a filly by Juddmonte Farms-based Nathaniel.

Nathaniel’s oldest crop are three-year-olds and include G3 winner God Given and Listed winner Natavia.

Threading, a 2YO filly trained by Mark Johnston, won the G2 Lowther Stakes at York to provide leading shuttle sire Exceed And Excel with his 136th stakes winner.

Threading (Exceed And Excel x Chaquiras by Seeking the Gold) preserved her unbeaten record following her debut victory at Goodwood.

She accelerated with an impressive turn of foot inside the final furlong to beat Madeline (Kodiac) by a length and three quarters with another three quarters of a length back to Mamba Noire (Wootton Bassett).

She is a half-sister to Polydream (Oasis Dream), winner of the G3 Prix du Calvados at Deauville last weekend.

This was the third purchase made between the partnership of Qatar Racing and new Chinese investors at this year’s sale.

At the close of trade on day three Arqana reported an aggregate of €9,379,500, down seven per cent but from 22 fewer offered lots in 2016.

The 12-day sale begins on November 7.

The James Fanshawe-trained Fleur Forsyte, a 3YO filly by Teofilo out of the Dr Fong mare Fleurissimo, ran out a convincing
