The build-up to the 2020 Arc weekend revolved around Enable trying to make history with a third win in the showpiece race.

It proved beyond her but later on Arc day another British-trained mare, One Master, did rewrite the record books by scooping a third successive triumph in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret. A fabulous achievement by a fabulous mare.

Aged 6, she was retired the following month. If her trainer, William Haggas, and owners had any regrets it would have been that she didn’t quite manage to land a win at the highest level in Britain.

It wasn’t through lack of trying.

One Master swept to the front in the inside the final furlong of the Queen Anne Stakes in 2019 but she could not quite finish the job off and had to settle for third behind Lord Glitters and Beat The Bank.

Next time it was also a case of so close but so far, in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket when she was beaten a neck by Veracious. She also ran a cracker when an unlucky-in-running length second to Donjuan Triumphant in the QIPCO British Champions Sprint.

After that defeat, Haggas said: “We’ve got to decide whether to keep her racing or send her to stud. I don’t see any reason why she shouldn’t race on again next year. The owners (Lael Stable) are by their own admission quite old, and they want the fun. It’s very hard to get horses as good as this.”
One Master duly stayed in training and a third Foret followed but near-misses in top British races continued. She was beaten under a length when fourth in the Falmouth Stakes, and only half a length when having another run in the Champions Sprint.
