Moonlit Promise, a leading contender for champion female sprinter in Canada, has been retired from racing and will be bred to Quality Road in 2019.
Campaigned by Hill 'n' Dale Equine Holdings and Winsdor Boys Racing, the homebred by Malibu Moon was a Sovereign Award finalist last year and retires with eight wins in 18 starts with earnings of $507,462.
A multiple Grade 2 winner, Moonlit Promise hails from the family of leading sires A.P. Indy and Summer Squall. She won her second edition of the G2 Bessarabian Stakes at Woodbine on Nov. 25, and she is also a two-time winner of the non-graded Sweet Briar Too Stakes at the same track. Her resume also includes victories in the G3 Ontario Fashion Stakes and the listed La Lorgnette Stakes.
“It is extremely gratifying to raise and race a mare of the caliber of Moonlit Promise,” said Hill 'n' Dale's John G. Sikura. “She will be an invaluable addition to our broodmare band. Trainer Josie Carroll and her staff did a great job keeping her in top form for three seasons of racing. We are committed to giving her every opportunity breeding to Quality Road who has enjoyed a phenomenal year”
