Monomoy Girl (Tapizar), victress of four consecutive Grade I events in as many months, returned to the work tab Saturday to breeze four furlongs in :49.88 over Saratoga’s main track. Sent in company with allowance winner Purely Lucky (Lookin at Lucky), Monomoy Girl had regular rider Florent Geroux aboard. It was her first work since taking the GI Coaching Club American Oaks on July 22.
“She breezed very well–it was just a little maintenance breeze in company,”said trainer Brad Cox. “We weren’t looking to do a whole lot.”
The undisputed leader of her division, the sophomore filly has five graded tallies to her credit this year, including the GI Ashland S. Apr. 7, the GI Kentucky Oaks May 4, and the GI Acorn S. June 9.
“She looks fantastic,” continued Cox. “She was letting us know the last couple of days, the way she’s been galloping, that it’s been three weeks since she’s run and she was looking to do something.”
Working toward Parx Racing’s GI Cotillion S. Sept. 22, Monomoy Girl is scheduled to travel to Cox’s base at Churchill Downs Wednesday.
