We take a look back through the career of Enable, who was retired on Monday afternoon.

Following a limp performance in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, John Gosden announced on Monday than Enable would be retired. Enable will go down as one of the greatest race mares that horse racing has ever produced, winning 12 Group One races in four different countries.

Let's look back through Enable's incredible career, from her first pattern-race win in the 2017 Cheshire Oaks, to her final outing in the 2020 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
