Enable: The best filly I have ever seen…

Watching Enable winning the Eclipse Stakes and then looking forward to her running in the King George VI & QE Stakes at Ascot this Saturday has brought me to a heady conclusion. For if Frankie Dettori says that she is the best horse he has ever ridden I now believe that what’s she’s done in her career makes her the best filly I have ever seen. And I go back to Petite Etoile in 1959

Here is a Sunday Times report on the Eclipse and last Sunday’s look ahead to the King George.
