Beholder up for second straight Eclipse Award


Wednesday, January 8, 2014
Beholder, Spendthrift Farm's champion 2-year-old of 2012, is the prohibitive favorite to take home her second consecutive Eclipse Award, this time in the 3-year-old filly category, when the winners are announced Jan. 18 at ceremonies at Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

Beholder backed up her juvenile campaign with another stellar year in 2013, going 5-2-0 in seven starts for trainer Richard Mandella. As she did the previous year, she capped the season with a Breeders' Cup victory, this time in the Grade 1 Distaff.

Other victories during the season came in a trio of Grade 1 events at Santa Anita Park: the Zenyatta S., Santa Anita Oaks, and Las Virgenes S. Beholder earned $1,860,000 in 2013, upping her overall total to $3,075,000.
