|

Midnight Bisou | Benoit

Elite Sales will offer three champion fillies and mares for sale at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale Nov. 8 when they send Monomoy Girl (Tapizar–Drumette, by Henny Hughes), Midnight Bisou (Midnight Lute–Diva Delite, by Repent) and Uni (GB) (More Than Ready–Unaided {GB}, by Dansili {GB}) through the ring. Among them, the group have earned a combined $13.2 million.

Monomoy Girl, owned by Monomoy Stables, Michael Dubb, The Elkstone Group and Bethlehem Stables, was 2018’s Champion 3-Year-Old Filly and the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner. She is three-for-three in 2020 and added her most recent Grade I win in Friday’s La Troienne S. at Churchill. The six-time Grade I winner is now set to target the Breeders’ Cup Distaff, and has crossed the finish line first in 13 of 14 lifetime starts.

The 2019 Champion Older Mare Midnight Bisou has earned $7,471,520, making her the top-earning U.S.-based filly of all time. She is owned by Bloom Racing Stable, Madaket Stables and Allen Racing. A five-time Grade I winner, Midnight Bisou was second in this year’s $20-million Saudi Cup to Maximum Security (New Year’s Day). Her 13 graded stakes victories equal those of Beholder. She will be pointed next for the GI Juddmonte Spinster S. at Keeneland before a scheduled date in the Breeders’ Cup.

Uni, last year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Mile winner and Champion Turf Female, competes for owners Michael Dubb, Head of Plains Partners, Robert LaPenta and Bethlehem Stables. A three-time Grade I winner, Uni finished 2019 on a tear, setting a Keeneland course record when posting a dominant win in the GI First Lady S. before her Breeders’ Cup Mile triumph at Santa Anita Park. She is on target for a repeat in the First Lady.

“This is a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to offer three champions in the prime of their careers,” said Elite Sales’ Bradley Weisbord. “They aren’t one-hit wonders; they have been leaders in their divisions since they hit the racetrack. With these unprecedented times we look forward to speaking with all interested parties as these mares will appeal to anyone around the world looking to target the highest end of the Thoroughbred industry.”
