Jockey Frankie Dettori hopes Enable is allowed to continue for another season after she failed to make history last weekend.
John Gosden's mare was the odds-on favourite to become the first horse to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe three times, but she lost the lead in the final stages, allowing Andre Fabre's Waldgeist to claim the win.
Connections have refused to confirm if she will be retired and Dettori says he wants one more go at the famous race at Paris Longchamp.
The legendary jockey claims the ground let her down, but he admits it was a special day after a superb reception from the crowd.
He told ITV Racing's Opening Show: "It was amazing - as soon I stepped out of the weighing room people were screaming and going berserk. It was like being at the football, it was not horse racing any more.
"The race went exactly like I thought. I had a great spot, and the pace was strong. I was able to save ground and give my horse a breather, and everything was fine until the Andre Fabre horse spoiled it in the last 100 yards!
"Of course, I was deflated, but I had another three races to ride in, so I had to pick myself up and try and get it out of my mind.
"It's been an amazing experience for everybody involved, and I just hope Prince Khalid keeps her in training, and we can try again next year!"
