Her condition is so serious that her trainer William Haggas instantly ruled out a return to the track.

Haggas said: “It’s devastating news. She had surgery on Wednesday and is under intensive care.

“If she was a human you would say she was critical but stable, that’s how it is, there’s nothing more I can add really. You just have to take each day as it comes.

“There is no question that her racing career is over, 100 per cent.”

After gaining her Group 1 wins in the Irish and Yorkshire Oaks, Sea Of Class came closer than anyone to ending Enable’s winning streak when pushing her all the way in last year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Her sole start this year came at Royal Ascot in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes when she finished fifth on unfavourable soft ground.

In total, she won four of her seven starts and amassed career prize money of £1,501,911.
