Stewart Confirms Goodnight Olive Heading Back To Brown Stable

Goodnight Olive | Fasig-Tipton

Back-to-back GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint heroine Goodnight Olive (Ghostzapper), who went to Lexington's own John Stewart at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale for $6 million on Tuesday Night, confirmed Wednesday via a message on X that his new acquisition would be returning to trainer Chad Brown to race in 2024.

After the purchase that evening, Stewart told TDN that, “With all the success she's had to date, I think she still has some opportunity to still run.”

The new owner added to that sentiment in the Wednesday Tweet when he posted that, “Goodnight Olive is off to continue training with Trainer Chad Brown. She deserves the right to tell us when/if she is finished racing. Maybe a three-peat at Breeders Cup 2024?”

If she could pull it off, Goodnight Olive would join French champion Goldikova (Ire) (Anabaa) who won the GI TVG Breeders' Cup Mile in 2008, 2009 and 2010, as the only horses to win three consecutive races at the World Championships.
