We officially put 2020 to bed last night at the Eclipse Awards, but not before Elite Sales was heavily represented on the evening.
The amazing MONOMOY GIRL, formerly owned by Monomoy Stables, Michael Dubb, The Elkstone Group and Bethlehem Stables, took down her second Eclipse Award last night, taking the honors as Champion Older Dirt Female. In a feat that had never been accomplished by any previous Eclipse Award winner, Monomoy Girl not only came back to win a G1 after 18 months on the bench, but she did the unthinkable in cementing her perfect season with a second Breeders’ Cup Distaff score before selling for a record $9.5 million at Fasig-Tipton. She is truly the horse of a lifetime.
Fellow Elite graduate Midnight Bisou was a finalist in the Older Dirt Female category while future Elite graduate Aunt Pearl was a finalist in the Two Year Old Filly category after an undefeated 2020 campaign which saw her dominate the field in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.
