Suzanne and Stuart Grant of Delaware celebrating Monomoy Girl’s second Breeder’s Cup Distaff win. Monomoy Girl, trained by Brad Cox, was owned by Elkstone Group (Stuart Grant – Delaware), Monomoy Stables, Michael Dubb, and Bethlehem Stables.
In what may have been the final race of her career, Monomoy Girl left no doubt concerning the discussion of top female thoroughbred in the United States.
After breaking from the outside No. 10 post position and racing three-wide in both turns, Monomoy Girl rallied down the stretch to win Saturday’s $2 million, Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Keeneland. “She’s a mare of a lifetime, very rare,” Geroux said. “It’s like finding a diamond.”
Monomoy Girl continues to impress her trainer Brad Cox as she prepares for his second start in the race. “She’s good, really good,” Cox said. “She’s as good as she’s ever been honestly.”
The Elkstone Group’s Social Paranoia picked up the first graded victory of his career when he sailed home down the center of deep stretch to win the $100,000 Appleton Stakes (G3T) March 28, 2020 at Gulfstream Park.
