Monomoy Girl Back To Work: Champion Mare Targeting Feb. 15 Bayakoa

Champion Monomoy Girl is back to work at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans, La., reports the Blood-Horse. The 5-year-old daughter of the late Tapizar breezed three furlongs in :37 flat on Dec. 27, her first work since earning a second Breeder’s Cup Distaff win.

“It was just something to get her started, an easy three-eighths by herself,” trainer Brad Cox told the Blood-Horse. “We will start picking up the pace each week moving forward. We will probably do a half (mile) next week and prepare for the (G3) Bayakoa Stakes (on Feb. 15 at Oaklawn Park)—it’s a race on Monday. That’s our short term goal as of right now. That’s what we’re targeting with her.”

The seven time G1 winner was offered at the 2020 Fasig-Tipton November breeding stock sale following her Nov. 7 Breeder’s Cup Distaff victory at Keeneland. Consigned by ELiTE Sales, the 2018 Champion 3-Year-Old Filly was purchased by Spendthrift Farm for $9.5 million. The new owners of the Eclipse Award-winning mare quickly announced that she would continue her racing career in 2021 with Cox, rather than immediately joining the farm’s broodmare band.

Monomoy Girl has earned $4,426,818 on the track thus far, winning 13 of her 15 career starts.
