LADY ELI IS BACK !
LADY ELI (Divine Park), multiple Grade 1 winner, was undefeated and won 6 times in a row at two and three years old, but she stepped on a nail following her victory in the Breeders Cup and developed laminitis on both feet. She was resting at Dell Ridge Farm Kentucky until her come back in August 2016 where she ended up at the second place of the Grade 2 Stakes Ballston Reserve at Saratoga for her first career defeat.
LADY ELI is now back at her best level and won brilliantly the Grade 1 Flower Ball Stakes at Belmont Park, on October 8th. Her come back is a very good news for her owner and for her trainer Chad Browns. Her return was also very much appreciated by the public, Mr Browns stating that he has never heard such an ovation when going back to the winner’s circle.
LADY ELI is the half-sister of SACRE CAROLINE, a three years old filly, by BLAME and SACRE COEUR, bought yearling by PEGASUS FARMS at the KEENELAND sale in September 2014, and is now in training with Mr Gianluca Bietolini.
