One of the greatest mares of all time, Enable, is successfully in foal to Kingman, Juddmonte Farms have announced via their Twitter page.

John Gosden’s dual Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner was last seen finishing sixth in her bid to record a third victory in the French showpiece in October, and was retired eight days later to embark on her new career at stud.

The brilliant 11-times Group One winner was covered for the first time by Juddmonte stallion Kingman in February, which the breeding operation announced was the plan for this year, shortly after Enable was retired in 2020.

“Fifteen days after cover, champion Enable was this morning successfully scanned in foal to Kingman,” Juddmonte tweeted. “Hopefully an exciting new chapter in this remarkable mare's story.”

Enable, owned and bred by the late Prince Khalid Abdullah, won £10.7 million in prize money during her career that lasted five seasons, making her the third highest-earning mare of all-time.

A record-breaking three wins in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes, classic glory in the Oaks and a game success in the Breeders' Cup Turf are also among the list of Enable's victories during her stellar career.

Four-time Group One winner Kingman, who was retired at the age of three in 2014, only raced eight times, but showed a blistering turn of foot en route to his quartet of victories at the highest level, including in the 2014 Sussex Stakes when he defeated champion miler Toronado.

The son of Invincible Spirit has already enjoyed plenty of success as a stallion at Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud, with his offspring including Royal Ascot-winner Palace Pier, French superstar Persian King and Domestic Spending, winner of the Hollywood Derby.
