The daughter of Scat Daddy was purchased last year by Moyglare Stud Farm for $2.55 million at the Keenland November breeding stock sale, and is now trained by Christophe Clement.
Out of her comfort zone up near the pace in the $300,000 Gamely Stakes (G1T) May 27 at Santa Anita Park, Sheep Pond Partners' Lady Eli once again showed her enduring class.
Multiple grade 1 winner Lady Eli headlines a field of six in the $300,000 Gamely Stakes (G1T) at Santa Anita Park May 27.
Hawksmoor channeled her prior European form when she led every point of call, including the final bob over grade 1 winner Dacita, to take the $150,000 Beaugay Stakes (G3T) and earn her first North American-based victory.
Miss Temple City's connections hope a start in the $150,000 Beaugay Stakes (G3T) May 13 at Belmont Park will get her on track for her ultimate target—a return to Royal Ascot in June.
Facing a group of turf distaffers as good as any a racing secretary could amass outside of Breeders' Cup day, Dickinson showed she was well on her way to becoming the latest unique talent in Kiaran McLaughlin's barn.
Godolphin Racing's Dickinson ran by 1-2 choice Lady Eli in the shadow of the wire April 15 at Keeneland to claim the $350,000 Coolmore Jenny Wiley Stakes (G1T).
At this point, handicappers can be excused for being a trifle gun-shy when it comes to evaluating this crop of 3-year-olds, simply because the most consistent thing about them has been their inconsistency.
Individually, Lady Eli, Time and Motion, and Catch a Glimpse could vie for favoritism in any entry box. Together, they headline the 1 1/16-mile Jenny Wiley that boasts four top-level winners in its eight-horse field.
Multiple grade 1 winner Lady Eli was the headline performer during a star-studded morning of turf workers at Keeneland April 9 with the dark bay mare turning in a sharp five-furlong drill in advance of the April 15 Coolmore Jenny Wiley Stakes (G1T).
Grade 1 winner Illuminant was impressive enough off a 10-month layoff in the $75,000 Wishing Well Stakes at Santa Anita Park, but she has bigger and better things ahead of her.
Siena Farm's multiple graded stakes winner nearly wired the Hillsborough Stakes (G3T) last year but lost when Tepin rallied for the win and a course record.
One could argue the turf female division was the best pound-for-pound in Thoroughbred racing last season. On Feb. 18, two of the more fearsome members took the first step toward a return to wreaking havoc in 2017.
Prize Exhibit has three graded victories during her 31-race career, including her last start in the Megahertz (G3T) Jan. 16 at Santa Anita Park, but the complicated 5-year-old Showcasing mare often has, well, complications.
Siena Farm's homebred Isabella Sings took the lead and never looked back, easily winning by three lengths in the $150,000 Lambholm South Endeavour Stakes (G3T) Feb. 11 at Tampa Bay Downs.
Al Shaqab Racing's Sandiva will likely be making her final start in the $150,000 Suwannee River Handicap (G3T) at Gulfstream Park before being bred to 2016 Donn Handicap (G1) winner Mshawish.
In what could be her racing swan song, Isabella Sings will try to successfully pull off her catch-me-if-you-can routine against 10 other fillies and mares in the Feb. 11 $150,000 Lambholm South Endeavour Stakes (G3T).
Al Shaqab Racing's Sandiva picked up another graded stakes victory and a second win in the $150,000 Marshua's River (G3T) when she won this year's edition by a half-length in a possible cap to her racing career.
It's taken a while for Do the Dance to get her bearings on the Southern California grass, but the improving filly will look to continue her upward trajectory Jan. 16 in the $100,000 Megahertz Stakes (G3T) at Santa Anita Park
With both of their racing careers in the final furlong, Todd Pletcher-trainees Sandiva and Isabella Sings are looking to pad their already showy résumés with another graded score when they start in the $150,000 Marshua's River (G3T).
Brown will run his first starters at Gulfstream Park's Championship Meet on Saturday.
Miss Temple City added to her already impressive résumé as a turf miler Dec. 4 in the $300,000 Matriarch Stakes (gr. IT) at Del Mar.
Miss Temple City will look to carry trainer Graham Motion's scorching streak on the Del Mar turf into the final day of the seaside racetrack's fall meet in the $300,000 Matriarch Stakes (gr. IT) Dec. 4.
Siena Farm homebred Isabella Sings led every step of the way Nov. 26 to register a front-running 1 3/4-length victory in the $100,000 My Charmer Handicap (gr. III) at Gulfstream Park West.
