In the Longines Churchill Distaff Turf Mile Stakes (G2), Beau Recall roused memories of her 2019 performance, finding the winner’s circle for a second time. Rallying past 1-2 favorite Newspaperofrecord on the Kentucky Derby undercard, the 8-1 longshot bested the foe she finished a closing second to in the Just a Game Stakes (G1) two starts back.
Prior to the Distaff Turf Mile, she misfired as the favorite defending her title in Del Mar’s Yellow Ribbon Handicap (G2), a race trainer Brad Cox described as “a throw-out.” The 2019 edition was a photo finish she won by a nose.
In 2019, she was first or second in each of her six starts.
The 6-year-old has four wins and six seconds in Graded stakes. Some of her “almosts” came in back-to-back runnings of the Just a Game, the 2019 Rodeo Drive Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita and the 2017 Del Mar Oaks presented by The Jockey Club (G1). She is approaching $1.5 million in earnings.
Cox believes the Grade 1 win is within the closer’s grasp.
"She's beat some serious Grade 1 winners," Cox said. "We're trying to get her one, hopefully, get her one at some point. I'm very proud of her."
Cox grew up two blocks from Churchill and scored his second win in the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) with Shedaresthedevil, also an upset, the day before Beau Recall’s latest win. He has won three Breeders’ Cup races with Monomoy Girl, British Idiom and Covfefe.
Beau Recall was bred in Ireland and ran her first two races there, winning her second start. She continued the streak in her U.S. debut and then moved up in class to stakes company. She was transferred to Cox’s barn in late 2018.
The bay mare is owned by Slam Dunk Racing and Medallion Racing, which are both partnership groups that allow investors to experience ownership at a fraction of the normal cost.
