George Krikorian’s War Like Goddess earned a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1), sweeping to the leaders on the turn in Aqueduct’s $500,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Stakes (G1), taking over a furlong from home and beating the boys by 2-1/2 lengths.  That’s the seventh graded stakes win for the 4-year-old daughter of English Channel, consigned to the 2019 OBS June Sale by Hemingway Racing and Training Stables, and sold for $30,000 after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. Now 12-9-1-1 for trainer Bill Mott, she has earned $1,612,184 to date. watch her under tack video
