A pair of Godolphin's stable stars are headed back to contest Grade I races in America, the owner confirmed in a tweet on Wednesday.

Trained by Charlie Appleby, the American champion Modern Games (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) will ship to Keeneland's Spring Meet to run over the Haggin Turf Course in the GI Maker's Mark Mile on Friday, Apr. 14. With the Moonlight (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), who won the GIII Saratoga Oaks Invitational S. and was second in the GI Belmont Oaks Invitational S., will contest the GI Jenny Wiley S. on Saturday, Apr. 15.

“The team are advancing nicely in preparation for the 2023 season,” Godolphin tweeted. “Stable star Modern Games will head straight to the G1 Maker's Mark Mile at Keeneland. With The Moonlight heads to the G1 Jenny Wiley.”

Set to begin his 4-year-old campaign, the bay colt has never lost in North America. As for With the Moonlight, the now-4-year-old filly swept the G2 Cape Verdi and the G2 Balanchine in February.
