Monomoy Girl keeps picking right up where she left off.
After the daughter of Tapizar ended an 18-month hiatus with a victory at Churchill Downs this past weekend, the 2018 Eclipse Award-winner for champion 3-year-old filly also rejoined the ranks in the National Thoroughbred Racing Association Top Thoroughbred Poll, landing in eighth with 88 points.
In her first outing since capturing the 2018 Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) beneath the Twin Spires, Monomoy Girl made handy work of her foes when she prevailed by 2 3/4 lengths in a one-mile allowance race at Churchill May 16. The chestnut mare won five grade 1 races during her championship campaign two seasons ago, including a victory in that year’s Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1). She has won 10 of 12 career starts with her two defeats coming in the 2017 Golden Rod Stakes (G2) and via disqualification to rival Midnight Bisou in the 2018 Cotillion Stakes (G1).
