Juliet Foxtrot drew away from the field in Saturdays GIII Modesty Handicap which was run at 1 3/16th-miles on the Arlington International turf course. A field of nine fillies and mares were sent to post in what was the first graded stakes on the Ride To Million Day card.
A Juddmonte Farms homebred, Juliet Foxtrot broke well from post two and secured a one-length lead going around the first turn in a :23.91 first quarter. Down the backstretch, she maintained her lead with jockey Florent Geroux guiding her through a :49.01 half mile. Turning for home she fought off a brief challenge from odds on favorite Simply Breathless, before drawing away and winning clear. She went the 1 3/16th-miles in a time of 1:54.00.
“She’s had two starts with us so far and we were always really high on her,” said winning trainer Brad Cox. “We think a lot of her and we think she’s got the talent to do some good things the rest of this year.”
Juliet Foxtrot was a graded stakes winner in Ireland as a 2-year-old in 2017. Since arriving to the Brad Cox barn in North America, she is now a perfect three for three. The GIII Modesty Handicap was her first graded stakes victory of 2019, and she now owns a career record of 11-4-0-0.
The connections of Juliet Foxtrot have no immediate plans for her next race yet, but are hopeful that she can move her way up throughout the rest of 2019.
#2 Juliet Foxtrot returned $5.60 to win, $3.40 to place, and $2.60 to show. Rounding out the top three was #9 Vexatious who paid $5.20 to place and $3.60 to show. Third was #3 Simply Breathless who paid $2.20 to show.
