MyRacehorse partners with Spendthrift on Monomoy Girl
February 26, 2021
MyRacehorse and Spendthrift Farm are excited to announce they will partner on the 2021 racing campaign of the sensational racemare Monomoy Girl.
In a lease to race agreement for the 2021 season, MyRacehorse has acquired a majority interest in Monomoy Girl, a 6-year-old daughter of Tapizar who has been a bastion of consistency and competitiveness on the racetrack and was acquired for $9.5 million by Spendthrift Farm at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Selected Mixed Sale last November.
Shares in Monomoy Girl, the 2018 Kentucky Oaks winner, two-time Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner and two-time Eclipse Award champion, will be available through MyRacehorse.com, a micro-share platform that allows for affordable horse ownership through its offerings which are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
MyRacehorse will offer 10,200 shares in Monomoy Girl at $46 per share.
Monomoy Girl will make her 2021 debut in the $250,000 Bayakoa Stakes at Oaklawn Park this Sunday, Feb. 28th, with a longer range goal of competing in the $1 million Apple Blossom Handicap on April 17th. Following the mare’s sale from her previous owners to Spendthrift in November, it was announced that she would remain in training and under the care of trainer Brad Cox, who has expertly guided her to victories in 13 of 15 career starts thus far.
This latest collaboration between MyRacehorse and Spendthrift Farm represents the continuous building of an already phenomenally successful relationship which in 2020 saw the partnership win the Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic with Authentic whose sensational campaign landed the son of Into Mischief the titles of Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male.
“Monomoy Girl is a mare that is truly one of the all-time greats in our industry and I think that’s not overstating her accomplishments at all,” said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift’s general manager. “She is a seven-time Grade 1 winner, winner of 13 of 15 lifetime starts, $4.4 million in earnings, multiple Breeders’ Cup winner. She is truly at a really elite level of class, really almost by herself in the discussion of great race mares, so it is really exciting for us to be able to partner with MyRacehorse on her.”
Michael Behrens, founder and CEO of MyRacehorse, said, “The opportunity to provide the MyRacehorse community with a horse like Monomoy Girl through a partnership with Spendthrift Farm is beyond exhilarating. We can’t wait to see what this amazing mare has in store for 2021. This partnership speaks volumes to B. Wayne Hughes’ ongoing commitment to grow the racing industry. His unwavering support to provide continued excitement and access to elite horses to the masses through micro share ownership is truly incredible and has us continually raising the bar at MyRacehorse.”
