Monomoy Girl, the Champion Three Year Old Filly in 2018, returns to the races tomorrow at Churchill Downs in a high level allowance race that is scheduled to go as the 4th on the card with a post time of 2:32 pm for owners Monomoy Stables, Michael Dubb, The Elkstone Group and Bethlehem Stables.
The now five-year-old daughter of Tapizar has been working steadily for her return to the races, posting a total of ten works since February 28th, accruing three bullet works at Keeneland along the way. Monomoy Girl returns to the scene of her two greatest triumphs, the Kentucky Oaks and the Breeders’ Cup Distaff, where she was last seen in November of 2018.
Also returning to the races this weekend is last out stakes winner Bellera, who will be cutting back to 7 furlongs for the $100,000 Musical Romance at Gulfstream Park tomorrow for owners Mathis Stable, Madaket Stables and Doheny Racing Stable. The four-year-old daughter of Bernardini has won her last two starts, adding the G3 Comely and Ladies Handicap to her resume over the winter.
