‘A Mountain To Climb,’ But Monomoy Girl Logs First Breeze Of 2020

In her first breeze since arriving at Fair Grounds on January 15, Michael Dubb, Monomoy Stables, The Elkstone Group (Stuart Grant) and Bethlehem Stable’s champion mare Monomoy Girl logged an easy in :37 3/5 on Saturday morning at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.

Unraced as a 4-year-old following a couple of setbacks, Monomoy Girl earlier parlayed a win in the 2018 Rachel Alexandra (G2) at Fair Grounds into subsequent victories in the Ashland (G1) at Keeneland, the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs, the Acorn (G1), the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) at Saratoga and eventually the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) en route to an Eclipse Award as Champion 3-year-old filly.

Monomoy Girl twice returned to training in 2019. She logged five works between Feb. 17 and March 23 at Fair Grounds and had four breezes between August 17 and Sept. 7 at Churchill Downs, only to be stopped on both times.

“She was solid,” trainer Brad Cox said of Saturday’s work. “Obviously no races picked out yet or that we are pointing to. It’s our third attempt to get her back racing again. It’s a mountain to climb and we can climb it, we just need to take our time and take it day by day.”
