Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard had accomplished just about everything a conditioner could on the grass during his lengthy career, but it wasn’t until Oct. 24 of 2008 that he could add the title Breeders’ Cup champion to his resume. Saddling a handsome gray 4-year-old for George Strawbridge’s Augustin Stable, Sheppard watched as jockey Julien Leparoux rallied Forever Together five-wide from off the pace to get home first up by three-quarters of a length over Sealy Hill in the mile and a quarter Filly & Mare Turf.

The daughter of Belong to Me, who had won her first of back-to-back Diana Handicaps at Saratoga before scoring in the First Lady at Keeneland in her final Cup prep, covered the distance in 2:01.58 and returned $11.80 for the score in the 10th running of the $2 million event at Santa Anita. Forever Together went on to win the Eclipse Award as North America’s top Turf Female. She tried for a repeat in the 2009 Filly & Mare Turf, but was only able to get third in the race.
