They ran 1-2 again: Enable holds off Magical to win the Coral-Eclipse.
That was a very exciting horse race--Enable is a beast- love her to pieces!

William Haggas has this morning announced that Sea of Class (2nd to Enable in the Arc last year, Irish Oaks winner) is fighting for her life after a bout of colic. She underwent surgery on Wednesday which has ended her career at this point. Just really hoping this exceptional filly pulls through. She deserves to live out a good life in the paddocks.

Terrible news—I so hope she pulls through.

The news about Sea of Class is devastating, and I hope she makes a full recovery. She was my favourite horse in training and tbh I think the only horse in training who could come close to beating Enable.

Ten Sovereigns was an impressive winner of the July Cup (G1) at Newmarket for AOB. Advertise was second.

Sadly, Beat the Bank suffered a fatal injury even as he was crossing the line the winner in the G2 Summer Stakes. :(

He's shaping up to be O'Brien's best 3 year old

Re. Beat the Bank, he was tough as nails, and those connections just have some horrific luck. First, the owner of King Power Racing dies in a tragic helicopter crash last fall, then they lose their best horse in devastating fashion. Not that a human and horse's life are equal, but still, two tremendous losses for one stable.

The 7yo veteran is slated run in the King Geroge then in the Juddomonte International.
He gets Oisin Murphy.
