Enable’s Historic Third King George Triumph at Ascot

The late withdrawal of Aidan O’Brien and his pride horse Anthony Van Dyck allowed Enable to face only two rivals and accomplish the third King George triumph in the Ascot race. The Ascot racecourse is located in Ascot, Berkshire, and it’s used for thoroughbred horse racing. If you’re not familiar with horse racing, you should know that Ascot is one of the most significant racecourses in England, hosting 13 of Britain’s 36 annual horse races from Group 1.

After Enable’s fantastic second win at Ascot, the odds were stacked against the other two horses — Sovereign and Japan. The bookmakers gave Enable incredible odds of winning its third race after the horse’s excellent results in the first two races. In the same manner, the probability of winning three crucial races in a row is low, as no other horse has managed to accomplish such a feat.

With that in mind, betting on horse racing has significantly increased. Moreover, Bitcoin wagering has taken the online betting world by storm. So, if you plan to place a horse racing bet with Bitcoins, Ascot races are a top-grade opportunity to maximise your winnings. If you missed your chance to bet on Enable, be patient, as another chance would come along quickly.

The Path to Victory

Enable’s path to a historic victory at Ascot was a mixture of coincidence, luck, and exceptional training. Enable managed to pass the finish line of all three races with ease, with Frankie Dettori as its jockey. This was Dettori’s record-equalling seventh win in the race, and most certainly the most significant triumph in his jockey career.

Although Aiden O’Brien withdrew Anthony Van Dyck from the race at Ascot, the world-famous trainer didn’t miss the race, as he trained the other two horses. However, the O’Brien-trained pair, Sovereign and Japan, did not manage to fulfil anyone’s expectations in any of the three races.

Enable and Japan had a significant advantage, as Sovereign cut out much of the running since the rain didn’t let up during the third race. William Buick, the Irish Derby winner from the previous year, could not have done much as Sovereign’s jockey. Similarly, Japan under Ryan Moore did not showcase much strength in the final race. It seemed that the leader’s gas tank was running out.

From there on, the only possible outcome of the race was Enable’s historic third win. Dettori’s motionless stance aboard Enable gave him an advantage as the rain began to bucket down. Mimicking the style of Hollywood films, Dettori managed to look over his shoulder in an effortless way, only to see Japan and Sovereign fall behind.

Enable under Dettori managed to finish off the race with style and grace, as it passed the post-five-and-a-half lengths with ease. Sovereign and Buick finished the race by winning second place, leaving Japan and Moore in third place.

Words of Praise for Enable

It wasn’t easy for Dettori to withhold his emotions after the historic third King George triumph at Ascot. He reflected on his and Enable’s time at Ascot, praising Enable and its continually magnificent work. Dettori was proud of the significant work Enable put in to showcase an imperial stance at the final race.

Moreover, trainer John Gosden added that Enable showed intelligence and strength, as the rain made the race more challenging. It’s easy for a horse to lose their hind legs when the ground gets wet. Luckily, that didn’t happen to Enable. Gosden prescribes the triumph to Enable and Dettori while joking that there isn’t much room for him during the training.

For now, Enable has won eleven Group 1 races. Subsequently, there’s hope for Enable to succeed in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in October with another historic triumph.
