George Krikorian’s OBS June Sale graduate, War Like Goddess, on furlough since a sharp third in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf last fall, returned to the races with a flourish on Friday, going over the million-dollar mark in earnings with a 1 3/4-length victory in Keeneland’s $300,000, Gr. III Bewitch Stakes.
Restrained and steadied behind a dawdling pace in the early going, the 5-year-old daughter of English Channel found room between horses to take charge after turning for home and was going away at the finish. It’s her fifth graded stakes victory, and leaves her with a 9-7-0-1 career record and $1,079,684 in earnings for trainer Bill Mott. Consigned to the 2019 OBS June Sale by Hemingway Racing and Training Stables, she was sold for $30,000 after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5.
