Monomoy Girl made her 2018 debut a winning one as she won the G2 Rachel Alexandra and in so doing, qualified for the G1 Kentucky Oaks.
Her next target will either be in the G1 Ashland at Keeneland or the G2 Fair Grounds Oaks at Fair Grounds before a run in the G1 Kentucky Oaks.
A $100,000 purchase by Liz Crow out of the 2016 Keeneland September Sale, Monomoy Girl runs for some of BSW Bloodstock’s most loyal clients:
Monomoy Girl was coming off a 2017 campaign in which she won her first three races (including the Rags to Riches Stakes) before running 2nd by a neck in the G2 Golden Rod Stakes at Churchill Downs in November.
Breaking widest of all in her return, Monomoy Girl had many excuses not to win the race: many questioned whether she could get the distance, she broke poorly, stalked the field, ducked out in the stretch and still won!
