Back then in 2018, Brad Cox together with Monomoy Girl managed the Kentucky Oaks victory. Now, he could achieve the good starter with the half-brother of Monomoy girl.
The G2 Risen Star which took place at Fair Grounds in New Orleans has been the formal witness of Mr. Monomoy to take the lead. The party received $400,000 because of the victory. Of course, it is also thanks to Florent Geroux riding contribution that leads the horse to achieve such a result. Thanks to this, Mr. Monomoy earned 50 points on the Kentucky Derby leaderboard.
However, Brad Cox didn’t let his party celebrate too soon… Cox said that there was a long way to go. To conclude, they would see how the horse came out of it. The team would map out the plan. Mr. Monomoy would probably have one single race before taking part in the upcoming Kentucky Derby 2020. However, Brad Cox still did not confirm what kind of race that his trainee would be taking part in.
In the same event, Mark Casse trainee’s Enforceable finished at the second. Then Silver State who is trained by Steve Asmussen finished in third.
Cox is very proud of his trainee. In a formal interview, he stated that Mr. Monomoy was a nice horse and stepped up to the plate today. The expert also agreed that Monomoy can really prove where he belongs to.
With the two official divisions, Risen Star offers the chances for the horses and trainers to earn their spot in the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

Mr. Monomoy, as expected by the experts, would start to finish the race. Many eyes have been turning to this horse because he has such amazing grip and race. However, the experts might get concerned with the outer limits of the distance capabilities. In the previous race, Monomoy broke well, and lead without having the hustles.
Enforceable had the moderate pace unfolding in the front of him. He made a sharp move inside the backstretch. All agreed that he had been struggling and doing his best. But all in all, Mr. Monomoy deserves the spot better than him.
