Winning Return for Star American Pharoah Mare

Tara Madgwick - Sunday May 9

Recently inducted into the US Hall of Fame, Coolmore shuttler American Pharoah (USA) was in the winner's list in the US on Saturday when his Group I winning daughter Harvey’s Lil Goil made a triumphant return in her first appearance of 2021 when taking out the Group III Beaugay Stakes (1 1nd 1/16th mile) at Belmont .

Trained by Bill Mott for the estate of her breeder Harvey Clarke and co-owner Paul Braverman, Harvey’s Lil Goil stalked the leader and forged clear in the straight to win the turf contest by half a length.



“She’s one of those fillies that I’ve been waiting for this whole winter,” said winning rider  Junior Alvarado.

“I’m glad she’s back and that she pulled out the win today. I still feel that she wasn’t 100 percent, but she was good enough to beat this group today. She’s an awesome filly to have back again and I’m looking forward to this year with her.”

Harvey’s Lil Goil has the overall record of five wins and three placings from 10 starts earning over $US824,000.

Harvey’s Lil Goil’s is the third winner from Gloria S, a half-sister by Tapit to Champion 3-Year-Old and Kentucky Derby winner I’ll Have Another and Grade III winner Golden Award.

American Pharoah has had a big May with his induction into the US Hall Of Fame earlier this week surrounded by the stallion registering six Northern Hemisphere winners in the first week of the month.
