She always is pulled out in the open spaces to make her run, but she was blocked in coming around the bend, and then had to search for a clear run, and i think it was one of her more impressive wins in the end.

She showed she is no sit and sprint horse, and no doubt needs wide open room to show her best.

I am sure that Bowman will ride her very differently in the Cox plate, with her coming down the outside of the field in clear room, and thus give her the chance to wind up and run those amazing sectional times in the final couple of furlongs.

And yes we did have a break from our poker game down the club, so we could watch the race, she is great for racing isn't she?

She is indeed - our wonder filly Enable won her second Arc de Triomphe yesterday (the first British trained horse ever to do so) under Frankie Dettori, but the second, Sea of Class, was desperately unlucky from an impossible draw. Still, Enable has now won nine of her 10 races and a mere £6,377,396 for her cash-trapped Saudi owner Prince Khalid Abdullah. Poor chap also owned both Frankel and Dancing Brave, amongst many other champions.

I heard one commentator say of Winx "She hates losing." Err.. well how would she know what that's like?

I assume you are not a horse, missie? She did l00se her early races, and, believe it or not, some horses do seem to know when they have won or lost.
