Moonlit Promise made it back-to-back victories in the Bessarbian (G2) Nov. 25 at Woodbine repeating her success in 2017 in the seven-furlong contest for fillies and mares.

A graduate of the Eddie Woods training program, Moonlit Promise is campaigned by her breeder Hill ‘n’ Dale Equine Holdings in partnership with Windsor Boys Racing. Her career earnings now stand at $507,462.

Ridden by Eurico Da Silva, Moonlit Promise settled in mid-pack early. She ranged up five-wide on the far turn, collared Silent Sonet and a back-peddling Kasuga in the lane and drew clear from her 12 rivals for a 1 ¼-length score in 1:22.28 as the race favorite.

The Bessarabian was the second stakes win of the year for the 5-year-old bay mare who captured the Sweet Briar Too S., also for the second time, in September. The Ontario Fashion S. (G3) is also among her six lifetime stakes wins.
