Monomoy Girl delivered as favorite in winning the $2 million Distaff, defeating a field of top stakes-winning fillies and mares. The Kentucky Oaks victor provided trainer Brad Cox with his first Cup win. The victory is the third Grade 1 win in four career starts for the undefeated son of Candy Ride (ARG), who previously won the Del Mar Futurity (G1) and American Pharoah (G1).
