Enable & Dettori win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with Sea of Class making it a 1:2 finish for Horse Weigh

7th October 2018 Paris LongChamp

A fantastic race on Sunday 7th October 2018 gave Frankie Dettori, piloting odds-on favourite Enable, him victory for the 2nd year in a row at the Paris Longchamp.

Winning Europe’s richest race, Enable is trained by the great John Gosden. Through injury, Enable had missed most of the current season but made an impressive comeback at Kempton last month.

“It’s not been the preparation we wanted, it has been very difficult, and we had a hiccup between Kempton and here with a slight temperature thing, so it has not been easy,” trainer Gosden told ITV Racing.

John Gosden believes regular weighing is an important part of these horses training. The Horse Weigh “Kentucky” platform is situated at John Gosden’s Clarehaven Stables, in easy reach of all the yards.

Making this race even more special the 1:2 finish as James Doyle carved a path from the back of the field on the home straight to just finish short of winning on William Haggas’ Sea of Class.

“We had to take our medicine from where we were drawn. Two more strides and she’d have won. She deserved to win. Next year.” said Doyle.

“We’d have got her in another stride,” reflected Haggas. “It was a great effort and a close one to lose. She’s run a great race from the draw. It was a very brave decision of James’s to do what he did and it was a whisker away from coming off. I’m thrilled with him and I’m thrilled with the filly.

William has three of our weighing platforms at his stables, Somerville Lodge, Newmarket.
