Monomoy Girl Champion 3-Year-Old Filly in Runaway Vote

Monomoy Girl Champion 3-Year-Old Filly in Runaway Vote

Usually there are ups and downs in racing, but when it comes to the 2018 season of Monomoy Girl, there are ups and higher ups.

In a campaign that began in February and ended in November, the amazingly consistent Monomoy Girl won six races, reached the wire first in all seven of her starts, and secured five grade 1 victories at four tracks to run away with the Eclipse Award for top 3-year-old filly.

In defeating other top 3-year-old fillies in the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs, the Acorn Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park, the Central Bank Ashland Stakes (G1) at Keeneland, and the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) at Saratoga Race Course, before topping off the splendid season with a clear victory against older females in the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) at Churchill, Monomoy Girl also earned a nod as a Horse of the Year finalist.
